$5.8M. $5M. $3.5M. $2.7M. $2.15M. $2M. $1.9M. $1.6M. And the list goes on.
My objective as a personal injury lawyer is simple -- to help people who have been injured and damaged by the actions and misdeeds of corporations, businesses, individuals, and other wrongdoers. Based on the results I have obtained for my clients for the past 17+ years, my objective is achieved on a regular basis, day in and day out. These results include: $5.8M for a client injured in a automobile collision; $5M for the estate of a decedent who was killed because of a desgin defect in an automobile; $3.5M for a client injured when her car was hit by an intoxicated driver; $2.7M for a client injured because a staircase was improperly maintained; $2.15M for a client injured because of insufficient railing on a walkway; $2M for the estate of a decedent who was killed in an automobile accident; $1.9M for the estate of a decedent (a minor) who was killed when exiting a school bus; $1.6M for a client injured because of an uneven walking surface; and numerous other $1M level/six figure results.
These results are greater and more numerous than many lawyers who have a higher AVVO rating than I do. Does an AVVO rating lower than I deserve bother me? No, not at all. Instead of taking time away from my practice to increase my AVVO rating (such as attending golf/seminar meet-and-greets), I stay focused on my practice and my clients. Focus that creates results for my clients. I thoroughly enjoy the practice of law and and obtaining results that matter.
