Personal Injury

Our firm frequently counsels and represents clients in personal injury matters. Our experience provides us with the knowledge to properly evaluate and develop personal injury claims to insure that our clients have the opportunity to receive full and complete compensation for their injuries. We place the interests of our clients first, and therefore when the at-fault party or its insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, we insist upon proceeding to trial. All of our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that our fee is based on a percentage of the recovery obtained, not an hourly rate. If we fail to make a recovery for the client, the client does not owe attorney's fees.

Further, many cases require very specialized representation.  In those matters for which we do not have that specialized experience, we will assist you in obtaining competent representation.
