About me

Our practice focuses on thorough and detailed preparation of each client's case for litigation.   Frequent contact with clients, returning calls quickly, hard work and careful and strategic positioning of cases for maximum settlement or award value are our keystones.  Ms. Banham's background in videography and video editing is also useful in the presentation of cases.   Our staff and associates have been with us a long time and are top-notch team members who are dedicated to our clients.

    I have referred several medical malpractice cases to Betsy and her partner Jan Mulligan, and in each case the results were outstanding. They are a great team with a great support staff. They really know what they are doing.
