Clienting: Digital Legal Marketing
Kay Van Wey is a board-certified personal injury trial lawyer with over 30 years of experience. She is the principal owner and founder of Van Wey, Presby & Williams, a Dallas, Texas-based personal injury litigation boutique firm. When Kay isn’t managing her firm or practicing law, she advocates for patient safety. Kay is a big believer in finding your "why", which is one of the things she credits for her ongoing enthusiasm for her work. Getting more news coverage- how do you take 1 high-profile case and get more than 15 minutes of fame? Publicity - high profile cases and were stories that needed to be told and developed relationships with reporters. How are you keeping up those relationships? Capitalizing on them? Dr. Death/Dr. Duntsch high profile case and got lots of PR spent lots of time & money on that case Dr. Duntsch reached out to Kay to threaten and ask for a job. Dr. Oz show - thought she'd get tons of clients from that and didn't Dallas news organizations Attorney At Law magazine articles Small but Mighty article: https://attorneyatlawmagazine.com/kay-van-wey "Standing up for the little guy" Marketing has been hard over the years and has involved a lot of patience and learning. When it comes to picking a marketing agency, Kay has been really picky about content, which makes the cost high from her time and her associates time perspective. 10 years prior to Dr. Dutch, Kay's firm represented a similar case and was on 60 minutes. Unfortuantely with no effect or results of getting clients. It just shows that big PR cases don't necessarily lead to more clients in your firm.

The Great Trials Podcast
This week, your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview Kay Van Wey of Van Wey, Presby, And Williams ( https://www.vanweylaw.com/ ) Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and ReviewCase Details: In the first of a two-episode series, 17-time Dallas Super Lawyer Kay Van Wey shares how she held neurosurgeon Dr. Christopher Duntsch – widely known as “Dr. Death” – accountable for performing surgeries under the influence of drugs and alcohol and failing to execute procedures properly, often resulting in patient paralysis or death. Representing a number of Dr. Duntsch’s victims, Kay exposed the lack of protection from medical regulatory bodies that are supposed to protect patients from dangerous doctors. Dr. Duntsch is one of the first physicians to be criminally convicted for severely injuring a patient. His heinous actions and operating room horror stories were the focus of the popular Dr. Death Podcast, hosted by top medical journalist Laura Beil.

My clients are everyday people who have been seriously injured by a healthcare provider, medical device, or prescription drug or involved in a life altering accident. I am passionate about helping my clients. My team and I take a personalized, hands-on approach to helping our clients navigate the legal system and ultimately achieve the justice and compensation they deserve. I understand just how confusing the legal landscape is and how when you are injured or grieving it is difficult to understand the complexities and navigate through the legal maze. In experiencing my own personal family tragedy in my late 30’s, I understand first-hand what it feels like to be a victim and go through the difficult process of healing and the road to justice. This is one of the primary reasons that I do this work. My patient safety advocacy comes from my passion to ensure that bad medical practices, doctors, and procedures that lead to unfortunate outcomes that could be avoided are removed or lessened so that no one else suffers. You may know me as one of the lawyers that prosecuted multiple civil cases against “Dr. Death.” I had the privilege of representing many of his victims. As I have always said and believed, most doctors are good doctors — and good people. But the system for how we identify, report, and stop bad doctors is failing patients. The tragedy of the Christopher Duntsch story is that so many patients were harmed before he could be stopped. This is just incomprehensible and unacceptable.Accomplishments: Texas Super Lawyer (2003 to 2018) – 15+ consecutive years, peer selectionAvvo, 10 rated, peer selectionMillion Dollar Advocate Forum – based on results achieved for past clientsMulti-Million Dollar Advocate Forum – based on results achieved for past clientsD- Best Lawyer – peer selection, multiple yearsDallas Bar Association “Trial Legend”- peer selectionMy track record is based on hard work, diligence, and pursuing each case that I take to help my clients achieve the justice that they are seeking.
