Van Alfen will join the experienced team of Las Vegas accident injury attorneys at Tingey, handling pre-litigation work such as notifying the opposing party, investigating the case, and negotiating a settlement. Pre-litigation often leads to a faster, more cost-effective resolution without the stress and strain of a court battle.

Firm attorney Dean Tingey said that Van Alfen has the expertise that clients need to construct the strongest personal injury cases possible.
“The pre-litigation processes are critical in helping people get maximum compensation for their injuries,” said Tingey. “Scott’s extensive experience in working with insurance companies gives him an edge in standing up to these companies and ensuring that they give our clients the benefits that they deserve.”
