Rapid City Law Services

Serving South Dakotans in Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation, Bad Faith Insurance, Property Owners’ Rights & Indian Law

Zephier & LaFleur understands how daunting it can be to face legal problems. The legal system itself can be overwhelming, especially when you do not fully understand the laws, how courts operate, or what is required of you when you wish to resolve a dispute. Backing up your position with the appropriate legal arguments based on the applicable laws, standing before a judge to voice your case, and being opposed by experienced legal teams for the other side can all add up to genuine stress, confusion, and doubt. 

All of the above is why you need the services of a law firm that knows how to fight for your side. At Zephier & LaFleur, we pride ourselves on being that team. We are motivated by our clients, the everyday people who live and work in our community. We relate to you when facing legal challenges that can have a profound impact on your life, your health, your financial stability, and your overall well-being. Working for you amounts to working for everyone in our community because justice is something to which we are all entitled and, once won, applies to everyone.

Our Practice Areas 

Our team provides highly-seasoned legal assistance in the following areas:

  • Indian law. This includes issues relating to tribal constitutions, laws, and regulations.
  • Property owners’ rights. This area involves “rails-to-trails” rights for landowners and other inverse condemnation and eminent domain issues.
  • Personal Injury. We fight to help you secure fair and just compensation for injuries suffered in negligence-based accidents.
  • Workers’ compensation. If you have been injured while on the job, we can help you secure the compensation you deserve under state law. 
  • Wrongful death. Losing a loved one due to the wrongdoing of another is a painful experience; we fight to hold wrongdoers accountable in civil claims seeking monetary damages.
  • Unfair insurance claims handling. We fight against bad faith actions engineered by insurers that deny you what you are owed as a policyholder. 

We also provide answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about unfair insurance claims.
