Review J Haas

About Me

I spent the first 12 years or so of my legal career in insurance defense litigation with some real estate, corporate, condominium, and construction litigation mixed into my practice.  For the past 18 years or so I have represented the families of seriously injured people or the families who have had family members killed in accidents.  I have tried more than 47 cases to juries all over the US.  I have settled hundreds of wrongful death and serious injury cases all over the US, and I have tried wrongful death cases in Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.


 


I only take a few cases at a time so that I can build relationships with my clients.  For more information about me, my practice style, and my law firm, please see:
