When the law cannot help a client, the Hurm Law Firm will not shy away from using other avenues, such as the news media, to help. A Hurm Law Firm client, firefighter Scott Stoltz, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, but current law does not provide coverage for his treatment. In order to advocate for that change, the Hurm Law Firm arranged for him to speak to Fox 8 News. His story appeared on all their broadcasts yesterday afternoon and evening.

The hope is that this will increase the political pressure on the state legislature to act and provide the coverage that first responders deserve. This kind of advocacy is another example of the Hurm Law Firm going above and beyond the call of duty for its clients.
