Catastrophic Injury

“Don Corson was strongly recommended to me by a lawyer who practices on the opposite side of the bar and who had appeared opposite of him at trial. Don was able to settle my serious personal injury case prior to trial. This involved negotiations with the trucking company’s litigation insurer, my automobile insurance company, and multiple health insurance companies. This was the first time I had dealt with any legal issues. If I had any questions or concerns, Don would get on the phone immediately and answer my questions. On a couple of occasions, he drove down to my home to visit with me. In this and in many other ways, I felt he truly cared about me.” Read more about Larry Woody’s Case.

“When our grandson was badly injured in an ATV accident, sustaining life-long injuries, we went in search of a skilled and ethical attorney to help achieve reasonable financial aid for our grandson’s future, which had been greatly altered. 


We were referred to Corson & Johnson Law Firm. We first met Don Corson when he came to our home to meet with us and to discover more about our situation. He immediately made us comfortable with his friendly but professional demeanor. And I couldn’t have been more impressed with his depth of legal knowledge. But more than that, it was clear he cared about our grandson’s well-being.

In the many months that followed it became obvious to us that we had the best attorney in the state of Oregon working alongside us. Don was always a professional, but he was more than just an attorney to us. He became a friend.

As it turned out, Don Corson did a fabulous job and our grandson will be well taken care of throughout his life. Along with a sense of assurance about our grandson’s future well-being, we also have a life-long friend. There are no sufficient words to thank Don Corson and his staff for all they did for us and our grandson. We have no hesitation in recommending his services to others. You won’t be sorry.”

“I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to both Don Corson and Lara Johnson. I greatly appreciate the respect and care afforded me following a serious auto accident in July 2007. From the very beginning, I was impressed with the firm’s personal attention and commitment to integrity. Don drove all the way to Portland to meet with me – on a Saturday no less. I was immediately taken with his depth of care, knowledge, and practical advice. I soon met and continued to work with Lara Johnson. Lara combined her keen mind and expertise with affirming conversation, guidance, and personal compassion. She is quick, smart, and responsive; she handled my case with the utmost integrity and grace. Lara has the ability to cut through the red tape often encountered, and was appreciatively frank and proactive. Lara has my highest recommendation not only because she is so good at what she does in her work, but because she adds a very human touch to what can be complex and frustrating matters. My experience with Lara and Don was especially meaningful for me because it is not often in a business relationship that one feels truly cared about on a personal level. The world needs more attorneys like Lara and Don – they embody everything the legal profession strives to be.”

“The attorneys at The Corson and Johnson Law Firm did an excellent job in my case. In October 2008, I was severely injured in a farm machinery accident. I received further permanent injuries in the hospital as a result of the negligence of the medical personnel involved in my care. Everyone in your office was very kind, caring, and considerate and went above and beyond to ensure they did everything in their power to ensure the best outcome in my case. I truly appreciate all that you’ve done to help me through such a difficult time in my life.”
Shelley Durrant, Monroe, OR

“I was injured several years ago in a mill accident near Grants Pass. Unfortunately, the doctors who treated me after the accident made several mistakes, leaving me partially paralyzed for the rest of my life. Don Corson took my case to trial and the jury awarded me the largest medial negligence or personal injury verdict in the county’s history. In representing me, Don was honest about the strengths and weakness of my case and thorough in his preparation for it. At the trial, he was well-prepared and quick on his feet. I was very impressed with him, as were the numerous court employees who came in to watch him in trial. I would absolutely recommend him to my friends and family.”
John Miltenberger, Grants Pass, OR

Insurance Disputes

“In February of 2007, I was involved in a hit and run accident in California. Upon my return to Eugene, I contacted The Corson & Johnson Law Firm to represent me in a claim under my uninsured motorist car insurance policy. I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and appreciation for the representation I received from Lara Johnson of The Corson & Johnson Law firm. Her professionalism in handling my claim was of the highest degree. She always expressed an interest in my recovery from the accident, and her knowledge of the process in solving this case resulted in an excellent settlement. I would recommend The Corson & Johnson Law Firm to anyone interested in obtaining a firm with outstanding attorneys and an excellent staff. The paralegals working on my claim were friendly, efficient and extremely capable.”
Joan Mehn, Eugene, OR

“Two years ago, I was hospitalized with multiple fractures in both my wrists. For some time, I could not feed or change myself. While I was still in the hospital, my daughter called Don Corson and he promptly went to the incident scene in his suit and started photographing the scene right from the ground. Don took my case even though it had some challenges. He kept me well informed of the status of the case, showed concern for me and my condition, and prepared me well for my deposition testimony. The case settled for an amount well above my expectations. In my past professional life, I worked with hundreds of lawyers. I know from experience that Don Corson “has it all.” He is exceptionally sharp; he is aggressive in his representation and at the same time courteous to all; and he has a wonderful manner with his clients what would be called a good bedside manner if he were a doctor. I would recommend Don Corson to my friends and family without reservation.”
Kathleen Meredith, Eugene, OR

Trucking & Vehicle Injuries

“Not very many people can say that they love their lawyer, but I can! I am very thankful I found Don, and that he took my case. Don is a remarkably cheerful, positive, warm person, whose optimism buoyed my spirits during tough times. I really felt Don was in my corner fighting for me; and that although he was kind to me personally, I discovered that he is a very smart and strong opponent legally. Don is a remarkable combination of integrity, strength and smart with a compassionate heart. I could not have been more fortunate to have found Don; he earned my trust, respect, and appreciation. I wholeheartedly recommend Don Corson and his staff to you as an advocate.”
Denise Steele, Eugene, OR

“Don represented me on a premises liability claim, and later, on a motorcycle collision case. We developed a relationship that was not only businesslike, but also truly friendly. He instilled in me confidence in his ability, and I never questioned his judgment. Don was honest and straightforward in his recommendations. Even though I was uncomfortable wit the judicial system, he made me feel confident, and comfortable enough to respond to the litigation issues as they arose. I never had a better experience working with someone as I had working with Don and his staff.”
Gordon Cabral, Eugene, OR

“You were honest and straight with your communication. You conveyed sincerity and follow-up well closing communication loops. You are honorable people who are trustworthy and competent. You are all top notch and top luck to all.”
Jess F., Salem, OR

Unsafe Products

“I had an awesome experience with Don Corson in my case, which is an odd thing to say as I would not wish a lawsuit on anyone. I was terribly injured (multiple head and facial fractures) when my seat belt failed to work properly in a medium speed collision. My daughter was 14 months old at the time. Fortunately, a local attorney in St. Helens recommended a Eugene firm in which Don worked. I really enjoyed working with Don. He was aware of the emotional side of head injuries and litigation and helped me feel prepared. He also insulated me from worrying about all the strategic decisions and the ups and downs of litigation. He spoke to me in terms I could understand. I continue to feel support from Don and his firm as if they were my extended family.”
Susan Dunn, Deer Island, OR

Wrongful Death

“Don Corson represented me several years ago. He responded to my questions quickly and explained the whole process as to what would take place during the lawsuit in order to ease my tensions and fears. He was extremely easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and made the whole process as smooth as it could be. I would highly recommend him to anyone, as he is one of the most professional, honest, and caring individuals I have had the pleasure to know. Knowledge, integrity, and professionalism are a must in a lawyer and Don Corson is all of them without a doubt.”
Bev RatheLeGurche, Sublimity, OR

“My beautiful healthy 45 year old wife, Mary, died suddenly in her sleep due to a fatal prescription drug combination. Mary’s physician had prescribed an antihistamine and an antibiotic, a lethal combination, warned against by both pharmaceutical companies and physician drug references. I researched and interviewed attorneys statewide before choosing the excellent firm of Johnson, Clifton, Larson and Corson. Don Corson was a firm partner prior to forming his new firm, The Corson & Johnson Law Firm. Don was the lead attorney in my case, backed by a very professional support group. Choosing an attorney in a medical malpractice case is a very important endeavor, because you will be challenged by the medical malpractice insurance industry whose resources will most likely exceed yours… choose wisely… choose the best! Don Corson in my opinion is a consummate trial attorney in case preparation and courtroom presence. Remember, the attorney you choose will be your teammate. Don Corson has the compassionate, caring human side that will make you a valuable member of that team. Don did an outstanding job of explaining a complicated case to the jury. The Lane County jury returned a substantial verdict in our favor. If you are a victim of serious injury or wrongful death, the justice of a monetary jury award may be vital to your future, but the justice of documenting a legal record of accountability will remain forever and provide spiritual healing. My beautiful wife Mary is gone, but the light of justice allows Mary’s legacy in the public record to protect others. I can offer you both an intellectual and heartfelt unqualified “yes” in recommending Don Corson as an attorney of compassion and unusual excellence.”

Other Disputes

“We appreciate all the hard work you did to help us on this seven-figure trust dispute. Don, you took on this highly contentious case and handled it through trial in a diligent, professional way, and were very enjoyable to work with even under the stressful situation that we had. Thank you so much for helping us and getting a good outcome for us and all the trust beneficiaries.”
Linda Van Duren, La Pine, OR

“Others refused my difficult case with its aggressive opposition, but Don Corson took the case because, he said simply, ‘It is right.’ Rarely does one experience such a gifted, brilliant individual such as Don, who combines a vast and expert legal knowledge with grace and compassion. He was in front and on top of the situation from the start, constantly demonstrating excellence. In court he was MAGNIFICENT! Working with Don Corson was one of the best experiences of my entire life.”
