A Word From The Firm’s Founding Partner

I have devoted my legal career to helping people who are injured to receive compensation when their injuries and other financial losses are not due to their own fault. I fight insurance companies every day to do what is fair to my clients because it is not my clients’ fault that they got hurt.

I pride myself on being available for clients to speak directly to me. After all, I am your lawyer and you hired me, not my legal staff. I want to help you get what is fair.
