About Me

Our firm is dedicated to making sure we hold  individuals  and  corporations  accountable when  they violate basic safety rules  which  endanger  all people in the community.  The satisfaction we achieve in knowing that we have helped someone who has been injured, hurt or wronged because basic safety rules were violated is why we are trial lawyers.
