Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Get Paid Our firm offers free initial consultations and works on a contingency fee basis. We don’t collect attorneys’ fees unless we secure workers’ compensation for you.

  2. Workers compensation
    The law requires that you report your work injury to your employer as soon as you think you’ve had one. We recommend that you talk to us as soon as possible to make sure you get the benefits you need and deserve.

  3. Social Security & Disability
    After your initial claim is denied, you need to get an attorney involved to confidently move on to appeals. If you have received a Notice of Denial from the Social Security Disability Administration, contact us at 859.559.4014 as soon as possible.

  4. Insurance
    If your medical benefits have been cut off and you still need treatment, we can help extend your benefits. While an insurance company has the right to dispute recommendations, we can help ensure that you receive the medical compensation you need.
