Serving Injured Workers & Accident Victims

The way our legal system works, you only have one shot to get what you are owed. That is why it is so important for people with serious injuries to choose a lawyer with proven results.

While the majority of the cases I handle end with a settlement, I prepare each and every case as if it were going to trial. My approach works and it shows in the results I obtain for my clients.

When I tell insurance companies that he will fight for my clients in court if a fair settlement can’t be reached, they know I mean it. The case summaries below speak to the results I’ve achieved for my clients.
