National Trial Lawyers

Founded on Honesty, Hard Work & Servicing Our Clients

At Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC, we’re not just making a living—we’re making a difference. It’s the fundamental idea of helping people that drives us to do what we do. It comes naturally to us. When you hire BCH as your lawyers, your concerns become our priorities, and from day one our first priority will be to fight for you.

Our clients deserve their day in court, and there’s nothing quite like having “been there” to help maximize your chances of recovery on your claims. Our firm has won verdicts and settlements on behalf of the seriously injured, those suffering from debilitating conditions like mesothelioma, and the bereaved in all types of cases. We are passionate about standing up for the little guy against huge corporations, representing the underdog, and fighting for right to triumph over wrong. We take that responsibility seriously, passionately advocating for the rights of the wronged. Without our clients, there would be no law firm.

BCH is a national law practice with the resources needed to see a case through to a successful outcome, including the recently discovered injuries and side-effects caused by Essure and proton pump inhibitors. One of the biggest mistakes a potential client can make is hiring an inexperienced firm or a firm with inadequate resources.
