If you have suffered an injury or loss, you need aggressive, fair representation from a lawyer who understands the difficulties you and your family are experiencing.   You need someone with a proven record, who will fight hard and get results.  The insurance company is prepared to spend enormous amounts of resources to defeat or minimize the damages in your claim.  We are not afraid to fight the insurance company, and we have the resources and proven track record to back it up.


Remember, you should not speak to an insurance company adjuster or investigator before you speak to a lawyer.  You may need to take immediate steps to preserve evidence or obtain witness statements.  You may also need to place parties on notice of your claim, retain a consultant to investigate a loss scene or seek advice about obtaining appropriate medical treatment. We are here for you, and we will carefully prepare your case and be ready for trial when necessary.


When it's important to you or your family, don't take chances.  We can help allocate the responsibiulity for the harm you have suffered onto the responsible party - and their insurance company.  Give me a call and receive a free, no obligation consultation. 


- John Malm 

Accepting wrongful death and serious injury cases due to automobile accidents, premises liability, product liability, sports injuries, medical malpractice and nursing home abuse.

"I've known John for years and, as a transactional attorney, confidently refer all personal injury and commercial litigation matters to him. John has the rare combination of traits that make him a go-to litigator: he genuinely cares about his clients while applying a sharp intellect and keen awareness of substantive and procedural nuance to the party-counsel-court dynamics that make litigation more art than science.
