Our values


Through our long and successful practice, we have seen just about every kind of case, and we bring that experience to help each and every client. If you are hurt, and someone else is at fault, you have come to the right place.

We have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies, medical providers and at-fault parties to get you the medical treatment you need and full compensation for your injury, including lost wages, pain and suffering, payment of medical bills and money to cover any continuing needs that may exist. Call or email the firm to schedule a free consultation.


Our reputation for integrity serves us well in negotiations with insurance company representatives and others who know we have the facts to back up our settlement demands. We will never accept a quick settlement that goes against your best interests or pursue frivolous claims that eat into your recovery. We will fight for you in court and at the negotiating table.


At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we will keep you up-to-date on the progress of your claim, explain the probable timing, and make sure you get full compensation as efficiently and effectively as possible.

When you are injured, it is critically important to contact us right away. The sooner we can begin to gather information and identify witnesses, the better it is for your case. We will go to work immediately, often the same day you call, to help make sure you are getting the medical treatment you need and talk to the insurance company representatives.

We provide 24-hour access to our attorneys, evening and weekend appointments and home visits when needed. We can also help you get a rental car, get your car repaired, and arrange for you to get medical treatment now with the expenses to be paid when the insurance pays your settlement.


We provide personal attention in a caring environment. Our attorneys and experienced paralegals work closely with you to make sure we understand your goals, and you understand all of your options. We know if you’re contacting us, you are going through a terrible time. We care about our clients and do all we can to support them throughout the legal process.
