Personal Injury Lawyers Who Believe In You And Your Case

We listen to our clients.
During our meetings we listen to you, understand your situation, and answer any questions you have about the legal process. Because your case is unique, the details of your case are important. We look forward to getting to know you and understanding how we can best help you.

We are available when you need us.
Our lawyers are available for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you need us, we encourage you to reach out anytime.

Communication.
It is important for clients to understand the legal process. We take the time to explain the case process from beginning to end and answer questions along the way. We stay in touch with our clients, follow up on their treatment, and keep them informed as the case progresses.

Skill and Experience.
Our lawyers have years of experience in and out of the courtroom, trying cases before juries and negotiating favorable settlements on behalf of injured clients. See our newest verdicts and settlements below.

We prepare for trial but work to settle your case if that is in your best interests.
By preparing for trial, we are in the best position to negotiate a favorable settlement or proceed to trial if necessary. You are in control of your case and the decision to settle or proceed to trial will always rest with you. We talk to our clients about the risks and benefits of a trial or a settlement and help guide clients toward the choice that works best for them.

Mock Juries.
For many cases we use focus groups to develop issues and plans for settlement or trial. Using mock juries and focus groups helps us learn important issues and facts that juries focus on. While focus groups are not necessary in every case, they can be an important part of developing a case and preparing for trial.

We are respected by other lawyers.
Our lawyers are ranked as “super” and “best” by “Super Lawyer” and “Best Lawyer”.

We are respected by former clients.
Before hiring us, we encourage you to see what other clients have to say about us. The most common sites where reviews are posted include Avvo, Google, Facebook, Martindale, and Yelp.
