“I give you an insider’s view of the DBA. I don’t sugar coat it for you. I give it to you straight. No lawyer talk, no double talk. Just good old fashioned, unsweetened truth.”
Defense Base Act Lawyer Bill Turley
Making decisions based upon emotions....

Combining experience with non-emotional decision-making is the real value in hiring the right DBA lawyer.

USA Environmental - “Safety is Our #1 Priority”
On the “About Us” page under the section of “Safety and Quality” on the USA Environmental website it reads: “USA has an open-door policy that all personnel can use to voice safety concerns; requires that all employees be committed to performing work in accordance with safe work practices; and has empowered all employees to stop work, without retribution, to voice safety concerns or issues.
I don’t doubt this is all very true. But I do doubt that no one ever gets hurts working overseas for USA Environmental. Because let’s be real: accidents happen no matter how much you prepare or train for them. They still happen and people still get hurt.
