Facing off against the government or a large insurance company can seem intimidating, but for more than 15 years, I have been able to even the playing field and defeat powerful adversaries. in an area where adversaries have an unfair advantage. The success of my law firm is based on several factors, such as:

Personal injury representation

As a personal injury attorney, I represent clients who have been injured by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts or omissions of others. My firm investigates the facts thoroughly and negotiates with insurers to obtain just settlements in matters related to the following:

  • Auto accidents — When a car or truck accident is caused by a careless or reckless driver, I will help you navigate the claims process and pursue the compensation you are entitled to receive.
  • Slip and fall incidents — In slip and fall cases, my firm takes on negligent property owners and other defendants whose failure to take reasonable safety measures led to a serious injury.
  • Medical malpractice — When healthcare providers injure patients by rendering substandard care, I work to hold individuals and institutions fully accountable. This includes aggressive representation in cases where infants have suffered birth injuries.
  • Catastrophic and fatal injuries — The most serious injury cases are those that alter a victim’s life forever or tragically take their life. I am a fierce advocate for victims of traumatic brain injuries and other life-altering medical conditions.
