You've been harmed, injured or abused: call, it's free, and it might just change your life.
I fight for the justice you deserve
We may live in a “David vs. Goliath” world, but my firm is here to hold major corporations accountable for putting their bottom line profits ahead of peoples’ lives. I am a skilled trial lawyer on a mission to make a real difference in my clients’ lives, and change the system so that others will not needlessly suffer similar fates.
My practice emphasizes civil trial law, including insurance bad faith, catastrophic personal injury, and health-related cases. Our insurance cases include fighting a wide range of battles with health, life, disability, property and liability insurers. We get justice for our clients and hold the wrongdoers accountable.
You don’t pay us unless we win
Because clients are frequently also fighting for their financial lives, we often work on a contingency basis, so clients don’t pay us anything until and unless we win your case through a verdict or settlement. If we don’t win, you don’t pay us anything.
What sets our firm apart?
- Experience Working on the Other Side
I formerly worked in large corporate law firms defending insurance companies in bad faith lawsuits. Because I understand how they think and operate, I can frequently stay one step ahead of their legal strategy.
- Well Respected and Solid Reputation
85% of my cases are referred by other attorneys who are aware of my insurance expertise and reputation for out-working the defendants’ legion of corporate lawyers. That’s also why opposing attorneys take notice when I’m on the other side — they know they’re in for a fight.
- Personal and Caring Client Attention
I take very few cases so I can personally devote a tremendous amount of time and care to each client. I get to know my clients, their families, and the real story behind their suffering. Unlike many law firms, I do not run an assembly line law firm that delegates cases to dozens of associates and focuses on quick settlements to pay associates’ salaries and cover massive office overhead. Instead, I rely a focused team of people I know I can count on, and I serve as the lead attorney on every case.
- Passion, Commitment and Hard Work
I take pride in the passion and integrity I bring to every case, but please don’t take my word for it. Take a few minutes to view the testimonials from clients in some of my recent cases.
- Successful Track Record
Even though I approach every case from a humanistic point of view, results speak louder than words in the field of law. I’m proud to say I’ve compiled a solid record of positive financial results for my clients, while providing the high level of personal care and support that provide me with invaluable emotional satisfaction.
