Jeff K. Stinson is a Swift Currie partner who has more than 15 years of experience counseling clients through difficult workers’ compensation claims and advocating on their behalf, during which he has developed longstanding relationships and become a trusted advisor to his clients.
Jeff’s clients include insurance companies and employers in a diverse spectrum of industries, including retail sales, childcare, education, trucking and transportation, and religious institutions, to name a few.
Jeff has tried more than 30 cases and has won the vast majority of them. He also has been successful in working with his clients to mitigate damages.
Jeff’s attention to detail and thoroughness ensure his clients’ cases are looked at through careful and critical eyes. Because of his diligence, he has been able to spot crucial details or pieces of evidence that often get overlooked.
Jeff prides himself on being responsive and always available for his clients. He also ensures that he understands his clients’ business models and goals so he can represent their best interests. Knowing his clients and their businesses is key to his successful practice and enables his ability to provide full-service representation as if he were in-house counsel.
Jeff honed his strong skills in the courtroom when he interned at a solicitor general’s office in Douglas County during law school. In this role, he prosecuted misdemeanor crimes, and that raw, hands-on experience helped him become comfortable in any kind of courtroom and fast on his feet in front of judges and juries.
Jeff’s passion for workers’ compensation extends outside of the courtroom. He is on Swift Currie’s planning committee for the firm’s workers’ compensation seminar which educates clients on the latest developments in this practice area while keeping them entertained. He has also been a speaker at workers’ compensation events around the country.
