    About SELPH LAW

    Based in Columbus, serving all of Ohio.

    Our Columbus, Ohio personal injury lawyers worked in large law firms where they were required to handle hundreds of cases. While we were able to help many clients achieve a settlement in their cases, it was clear it was impossible for a single attorney to provide each client the attention and focus they deserved.

    • Our legal team has over 25 years of combined experience in personal injury law and has handled thousands of cases and recovered millions of dollars for our clients. You receive the best of both worlds . . . large firm experience with small firm care, concern, and service.
    • We provide unmatched support, constant communication, and superior service. All clients receive a phone number to text directly to the office. We are excellent at timely returning text messages and client calls and will promise you will receive return correspondence within at least 24 hours.
    • When you win, we win. Because we work on a contingency basis, we do not receive a penny unless our clients have been paid. Our interests are directly in line with our clients’ interests – maximizing their recovery. That’s why we say, when you win, we win.

    We established SELPH LAW to change the personal injury law firm standard by accepting fewer cases and providing a more personalized and superior customer experience. We are not the large law firm you see advertised on TV. We are a team of experienced lawyers dedicated to your personal attention. At our firm you will find a dedicated, knowledgeable team of professionals who will truly treat you like family. We know this is likely the first time you have dealt with the legal system. We are here to help you navigate this confusing process by helping you receive the treatment you need, getting the medical bills paid and getting you the compensation you deserve.

    Our team has one goal in mind in every case we accept: holding those who acted negligently accountable for their wrongdoing and the damage they caused. Every case is different, but our team’s diligence and attention to detail give our clients a voice against powerful opponents: insurance companies, corporations, and big business.

    Our approach to personal injury is simple. We want you to focus on your recovery and health. When you are hurt in a motor vehicle accident, you should worry about your physical recovery and not who will pay for car repairs. We offer free case evaluations to confirm we are the right fit for you. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your case and discuss your options and walk you through the process.

    Working with this law firm you felt like you mattered. The attorneys are very knowledgeable and dedicated to their clients. The office staff is very detailed, professional and they provide a level of comfort where you know your case will be handled correctly. They're not like those clown attorneys on TV that only want easy cases, they take on the complex cases too, and fight so your voice is heard and justice is done correctly. Our family appreciates the work done on my case and would highly recommend you contact them too!!! They provided Estate Planning for our family trust and customized it to fit our needs. Thanks again

    I was in a car accident on November 30, 2020. Head on collision, the driver of the other car was coming the opposite way from me and made a left hand turn in front of me even though I had the green light. The driver tried to say it was my fault although he was the only one cited for the accident. His insurance company (State Farm) told me they would only accept 60% fault because the driver felt I was speeding, they say anything to get out of being wrong. I called Tompkins Selph and Associates after being recommended by a friend. They started on my case the day I called them. I’m terrible with keeping up with updates and making calls to check on my case but they kept me updated and eventually convinced the drivers insurance company to take 100% fault. They answered every question I could possibly have and stayed on top of my case even when I didn’t. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did for me. They even recommended an amazing chiropractor for my needs. I’d definitely use them again if I needed them.
