The Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC

What really matters isn't what we say about ourselves -- it's what our CLIENTS SAY about our work on their cases. Here's what some of our clients have to say about our law firm.

The following are actual statements made about us by our clients     

      Defense Base Act:

“Bill Turley is like a pit bull, with a triple chop in his mouth, because he is really aggressive and at the same time he is very approachable. What I liked about Bill Turley is that he sat back and listened to me, and gave me room to talk, which most attorneys don’t do.”

Stephanie B

“My biggest fear was having the insurance company stop benefits and medical payments those sorts of things…. I was told about the Turley Law Firm, so I did researched it myself, they are very knowledgeable about the Defense Base Act”

Brian W

“…I checked several websites and I found The Turley Lawfirm website to be the most helpful, and based on that that’s why I submitted an inquiry to the law firm.  The information provided in the videos that were on your website were very helpful also… The attorneys at the Turley Law Firm are very knowledgeable, supportive and professional.”

Sally C

“My biggest fear was if I was going to have someone that would meet my needs and get back to me and explain things step by step to me. After the attorney spoke with me I felt more confident, he knew what he was talking about and that was how I selected The Turley Law Firm, the customer service was a 10.”             

Steven P

“… I had gotten injured in Afghanistan and my biggest concern was that my benefits were not going to be paid out, and that my injury was not going to be properly treated. I found the information on the Turley Law Firm website helpful.”      

Ben B

“I would definitely recommend others to the Turley Law Firm they are the best ever, the best office ever and the best people ever.  If anyone came forward I would tell them about you guys.”        

Mohamied A

Jones Act and Longshore:

Shipyard Worker Injured On Navy Ship - Bill Turley takes case to Trial and Wins. 

"Bill took my case to trial .. he fought hard .... he really did a good job." 

"I recommend them to anyone that needs help..he is a good attorney." 

Products Liability/ Third Party Work Injury:

“From beginning to the end we received great service, and we felt bad when everything was over to say goodbye to them. Because they were there for us for a lot of years and helped us out. It was sad to say goodbye when we had to say goodbye. But if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have our house, we wouldn’t have everything they helped us out with."

Marissa F

“Bill Turley is like none other (attorney) I have encountered. He is at once a tough and determined lawyer when dealing with the defendant, and at the same time a man sincerely concerned for the welfare and future of his client. He is a real person, after one meeting with him, I fully understood that. On more than one occasion he said to me, “Debbie, if I lose this case, it will impact my career, but it will be devastating for you, lets think this through and do what’s going to be best for you.” I ask you, what more can you ask of your lawyer!”

Debbie K

  "I think there a lot of attorneys that will fill in the blanks, kinda haphazardly you know shooting from the hip, Dave Mara has a master plan and he knows what he is doing. I definitely was impressed with his ability to articulate our position on everything, in order to get these guys to take us seriously. I think he's got a lot of integrity, a lot of attorneys don't have it.”

Dan P

“I think Bill Turley is the best, he has been there for me every time I have questions, he is there to answer questions, he explains everything.”

Juan M

“The client service rendered to me by Mr. Turley and his entire staff was exceptional. His staff was always respectful, caring and punctual from start to finish. Each time I was in contact with the Turley law firm either in person or by the phone, I was afforded what I would call exemplary service. So much so that there was not one experience that stands out in my mind. All the experiences I had with them were very positive.”

  • Another 5 star review for "Win Your Defense Base Act Case", the most comprehensive DBA book out there for anyone pursuing a Defense Base Act case.

    5 Star Review Christopher R. Great book!!! Lots of information to help with your DBA case! I got this book a week ago and have read through it. It has tons of great information that you would not normally know about regarding your DBA injury or how to deal with your insurance adjuster. It helps you navigate some law and breaks it down "barney style" so contractors can understand how to navigate through all your medical and legal processes. I would recommend this book for any contractor working for the USG overseas. See the whole review here. Review Dated: May 9th, 2017   Get the book for FREE that everyone's talking about today.

    5 Star Review William C.  "Well written, brutally honest, what every person who has a DBA case needs to read." Review Dated: October 27th, 2016 Find the actual review on Amazon here.    Brutal Honesty   Brutal honesty isn't always fun to hear. But it is always appreciated. I would rather no what exactly is going on with my case even if it's not good than have a bunch of sugar coated lies thrown at me. It's why I wrote this book the way I did. I want my information to make sense and come to me in a clear, complete package. So should you.    Once you're done delving into the book and getting a step by step guide on how to not only deal with your DBA case but also WIN your DBA case, you can go even deeper on the Turley and Mara Law Firm site.   After exploring all the videos, articles and blog posts that cover everything about the DBA you are going to be one prepared client and your DBA attorney and the judge is going to love you for it. The DBA insurance company and their lawyers are going to hate you for it. And that's perfect. Have fun studying.

  • Stephen C. praises "Win Your Defense Base Act Case" in 5 Star Amazon Review

    5 Star Amazon Review "In 2014 I could not return to work. It is 2017 now and I have just won my DBA case. Bill Turleys book “Win Your Defense Base Act Case” was essential to my successful DBA insurance claim and settlement. I could not return to work due to two injuries; a psychological injury being Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a knee injury being Bi-Lateral Tendonitis or “Jumpers Knee”. The DBA insurance companies medical professionals also known as minions opined that I could return to work with no restrictions. My work was in a high threat environment. I insisted that I was not ready to return to work due to my concerns. I feel that the DBA insurance company made their negligent decision in favor of saving money. However, I knew that the only one who could put me on a plane back to my DBA job was me! I knew this because I read this book that Bill Turley published concerning the DBA law. This book gave me the confidence to take control of my well being. The candidness and honesty in this book must be reciprocated by you; you must tell the truth always and never lie about anything related to your work related injuries; you will be facing an army of paid professionals employed by the DBA insurance company that will try to discredit you; this is by design and it is normal practice so do not take personal offense from this. My insurance adjuster was good at his job. He reminded me of the guy who tried to sell me a timeshare many years ago. This is not a stab at him, it’s a stab at the job that does not have your best interest at heart. I would like to say thank you to Mr. Turley for writing this book. During the 2 years it took to mediate a settlement I used this book exclusively to counsel myself, my family and friends. This book was my guiding light. Use it as your “cornerstone” to ensure your DBA case has a solid foundation. If I would of taken on the DBA Insurance company by myself then my case was likely to fall apart. Protect your rights, seek professional counsel. If you want the best representation, kindly request the Turley Law Firm to represent you. Bill Turley, I salute you for informing the troops, I sincerely hope this review gets to you and more importantly that it informs others. It breaks my heart to know that so many people get pushed to the side by these DBA insurance companies. Respectfully submitted, Stephen C." Review dated: June 15th, 2017 Check out the review here.   You want to make sure you're as ready as possible for everything the DBA insurance companies throw at you when dealing with your DBA case. So get prepared with my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case. You can order it here for FREE. What the heck, I'll even pay the shipping and handling. 'Cause at the end of the day this is you and your family's economic future at stake here. You need to win your DBA case.

  • Amazon reader gives "Win Your Defense Base Act Case" by Bill Turley a 5 star review without hesitation

    5 Star Review MARK EXCELLENT BOOK I was injured last year in a work related training accident that qualified under the DBA guidelines. Several months later I retained Mr. Turley's law firm. Shortly after that I read his book, it was very helpful & answered most of my initial questions. One thing that definitely helped was Mr. Turley's style of writing. It is very easy to understand without a lot of "legaleeze". Mr. Turley walks the reader through a typical DBA case step by step, carefully explaining the "Do's & Don'ts" involved in a DBA case. Again, it was very helpful & easy to understand. Mr. Turley's law firm has been outstanding in all respects. All of my phone calls are answered promptly & my emails are usually answered within the hour. I am extremely happy with the choice I made in legal representation. If you are involved in a DBA case, you definitely need to read this book. 5* for this excellent read. Review Dated: Novembe 7th, 2016 See the actual review here.

  • Kenneth H. is completely please with the Turley and Mara Law Firm's service, professionalism and website. These lawyers worked around the clock to win his Defense Base Act case.

    "I am COMPLETELY PLEASED with the service, professionalism, website ( I wore your website out. The section which spoke about the Independent Medical Examiner), communication, resources offered via telephone, the request for documentation. Documents, photos, and the calls that my attorney made to me throughout the week and on the weekends, when I thought he would be having fun. When someone calls you on his weekend in the evening, they are not screwing around, and his calls to me were consistent and timely.  He worked around the clock to win my case." Check out the website that he's talking about which offers a full DBA article library and a FAQ section so you can get the asnwers you need about your DBA case now.  After you're done wearing our website out, get a copy of my book, "Win Your Defense Base Act Case" for FREE here.

  • Randy S. receives great service and empathy for his DBA case with the Turley and Mara Law Firm.

    "One of my biggest concerns was what the future actually was for me. After the injury I now have limitations and could no longer work overseas which meant I was not able to make the living I was earning. After calling your firm I did not need to call anybody else. Grace called me back really quickly which made me feel confident... I did research your web site after my friend told me about your firm. It was helpful to see that others in my same situation were helped by your firm."   Worried about your future? Be proactive and start learning about the DBA, the DBA law system and what benefits it may hold for you as an injured civilian contractor working overseas.
