Testimonials from Real Clients

“I am writing this review to show my gratitude for the work Ron Cox and his firm did in regards to my case. I can honestly say I have never encountered any lawyer/firm more dedicated to providing the upmost care and attention to my very needs. Ron never took his eyes off the goal and always kept me well-informed to every move the firm made and every move made by the opposing party. Never once did I feel negated or left in the dark. Yes, I was a client, but I can truly say I was respected and treated with great sensitivity due to the nature of my case. A simple “Hey, how are you feeling?” before entering into the politics of my case always made me feel cared for and definitely showed great character on their part.

Ron and the firm fought diligently to win my case, always considering my opinion, wishes, and needs. They never gave less than 110 percent, taking no days off and leaving no stone unturned. I am forever grateful and completely satisfied by the work they did. It was a victory for me not just because I won my case, but the victory began when I attained such great people to lead the way. Their work was outstanding.

I recommend Proffitt & Cox Attorneys at Law firm to anyone in need of not just a lawyer, but of a great, compassionate, determined, humbled, caring, strong-minded, extremely intelligent and fight-till-there’s-no-more-fight lawyer. Proffitt & Cox Attorneys at Law firm took every brick thrown and built a foundation of a great future, for me and my family.”

“David Proffitt is one of the most caring attorneys I have ever met. We never felt alone in this matter. Additionally, one of the most important things an attorney can do for you, is keep in touch during your case. Not once did we ever have to call and check the status. He was always available, when he was in the office, to speak to us. If you find yourself in need of an attorney you can wholeheartedly trust, one who will fight for you, please give David a call. We highly recommend him.”

Thanks Attorney David Proffitt!”

“After the death of my son who was still born at 36w 6 d, it took me 6 months to get the courage to speak to someone on how my doctor mistreated me and my unborn son. Late for appointments by hours, brushing off my complaints of pain, and no ultrasound after getting into a small, but stressful, fender bender. He didn’t catch the smallest tear in my placenta that could have caused my son’s death a few short weeks later, even though I was having contractions and ended up have a c section anyway. I visited a website to help find a malpractice lawyer. Next day I get a phone call from two different offices but only was willing to travel all the way to Georgia. My husband reenlisted into the army after our sons death, so we no longer lived in Columbia. Meeting Mr.Proffitt, I knew I could really trust him. I told him my long and painful story of the day my son died, and everything that happened three weeks before. He helped me through it and asked questions. Made the process a painless as he could.

Months later he would tell me that, though my Doctor didn’t do what he should have, he did the bare minimum and could not be held accountable for his neglectful actions. I thought that was the end of it, but David wouldn’t accept that. He pushed through hours of paperwork, medical history, and the painful story of My John’s death. He wasn’t ready to give up now.

He took every option to help us however we could, and noticed we never filed the car accident with our insurance, because a lowly police officer said that we shouldn’t and never even wrote a report. Thanks to the EMS and Emergency room reports, he successfully had a way to file for a John Doe accident, since the driver of the other car drove away after going through a red light.

David Proffitt has given me hope for justice and for humanity. He could have just dropped our case once he knew there would be no malpractice lawsuit, but he didn’t. He stuck with us to the end. He is an amazing lawyer and person. We we’re lucky to work with him.

Thank you, David. Thanks for everything you did for us.”

“Mr. Proffitt worked tirelessly on my case involving an auto accident. It took nearly 20 long months for the insurance companies to settle but they finally did. Thanks to Mr. Proffitt’s negotiation skills, my case did not go through civil court saving me more time and money. I love that his practice does not give you the run-a-round and you talk to HIM about your case (for the most part). A big “shout out” to Nadine who also worked closely with my case and was empathetic and diligent to keep me informed. Don’t fall for the “Sink.” Get personal attention AND results.”
