“Honesty is more than not lying. It is being straight-up. About everything.” DBA Lawyer - Bill Turley
My Best Advice
Nothing is more important when handling your case, then speaking the truth. People who believe if they sugarcoat their case, it will help them win their case. Wrong.
You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects you’re not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.
My Second Best Advice
I strongly recommend that you immediately order (it’s free) my book Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap to the Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. I can tell you that it is the best step you are going to take with your DBA case. I recommend that you get the book BEFORE you speak with the insurance adjuster or hire a lawyer. I wrote this over the course of many years as a guide to help my clients gain a thorough understanding of the DBA.
I get calls almost every day by someone just like you that says they wish they had gotten my book before they made mistakes like talking to the insurance adjuster or hiring the wrong lawyer. You don’t want to be that guy. My book is a real book and it is FREE. It is packed with great information and is written in plain, easy to understand English.
Check out all the 5 star reviews for my book on Amazon.com. These reviews were written by folks like yourself, who have read my book.

Academi Defense Base Act Claims
Academi is an American overseas contractor. It was originally founded in 1997 by Erik Prince. Many of you may know it as its former name - Blackwater. The company was renamed US Training Center in 2009, and "Academi" in 2011 by new owners.
If you were injured while working as an overseas civilian contractor while working for Academi, then you may have a Defense Base Act claim and are looking for an attorney who can answer the questions you have. My guess is that you are looking for the best DBA lawyer that you can find. What you are going to see is that there are only a handful of top DBA lawyers, and sometimes the best DBA lawyer for you is not going to be located near where you live.
At War With The DBA Insurance Company
You need to realize that a DBA claim is an adversarial claim. Once you are injured, it is now you and your family against the DBA insurance company. I can guarantee you that they are only in it for themselves. They make money by denying legitimate DBA claims like yours.
It’s All Over Now
Just because you worked for Academi or some other big outfit before doesn’t mean much now that you are injured and have a DBA claim. Sorry. I give it to you straight. Not the way that you may want to hear it. That is my job. I am not going to blow smoke up your skirt just to make you feel good. That isn't going to help you get the benefits that you and your family deserve under the DBA.
It is a whole different story now. You didn’t sign up for this—but now that you are seriously injured—it is time to look out for you and your family.
