About Me

My partners and I have been together for almost two decades now.  We have helped thousands of client recover deserved funds when they have been injured due to someone's negligence.  From the most simple car wreck to complicated mass tort cases we've done it.  We pride ourselves on treating each case like we would for a family member.

Our trial results speak for themselves, and insurance carriers and defense attorneys know they are in for a fight when facing our firm.
