When clients have been wrongly injured, most of them seek only to recover fair compensation for the damages and injuries they sustained.

Ideally, they would like, and deserve, to be compensated as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, in many cases, those responsible for causing damages seek to avoid liability.  Often they have insurance companies and lawyers that seek to protect their interests.  They may seek to shift the blame onto the injured or upon others.  They deny that they were at fault.  They often engage in tactics such as making unreasonably low settlement offers because they know that the injured may be in difficult financial circumstances.

We Are There to Protect the Injured and Their Rights

We work tirelessly toward getting the injured full compensation for their injuries and damages.  We work hard to prove the cases of our clients as early as possible in the litigation process, with the goal of seeking a fair settlement from those who have caused injury.  If an acceptable settlement cannot be obtained, we position our clients so that we are in a good position to prove their case and the damages that they have sustained at trial.

If you have been injured in an accident, or a family member has been killed, please call me so that we can schedule a meeting with you at your convenience. There is no fee or obligation for this meeting.  Once I learn about the facts and circumstances of your case, I can advise you as to how I and our firm may be able to help.

If you retain us, we will work for you on a contingency fee basis.  This means that you will not owe us for any fees unless and until we recover compensation for you.
