I am a trial lawyer who helps people pursue their legal rights to rebuild their lives in catastrophic injury, malpractice, product liability, property rights, and contract disputes. I talk with my clients on a regular basis so they are involved every step of the way, and my results in injury and employment trials and settlements speak for themselves.
Unlike the typical "mill" firms focused on settling a high volume of cases with little effort, I put my best into each case to exceed your expectations and maximize the recovery.
I work in state and federal courts, and am not afraid to try difficult cases.
My firm, Cranwell & Moore, offers free consultations and contingent fee arrangements in which clients only pay fees if they recover money.
