OUR PHILOSOPHY

When a new client comes to our office, they are not handed off to a paralegal. One of our attorneys meets with each new client personally on their first visit to our office. We will discuss the merits of your case with you, listen carefully to your concerns, and answer your questions at that time, without any obligation on your part.

We generally only accept those cases that we are willing to take all the way to trial. Many of our clients have come to us from other attorneys who only want to settle cases as quickly and as easily as possible. While settlements are generally desirable and we encourage them, some cases need to go through the litigation process to achieve their full value. The decision to file a lawsuit is made by the client after a full discussion of all relevant factors.

RECOGNITIONS

With over 30 years of combined experience, we have the skill and experience to see a case through from the initial investigation to seeing the case through at trial. If you cannot come to us, we will come to you to make sure you get the quality legal advice you need.
