About Our Firm

“We strive to help each of our clients restore independence, dignity and meaning to their life.”

Since 1987, Powers & Santola, LLP., has been driven by the expectation of excellence in all that it does on behalf of its clients.  We are always motivated by a genuine desire to make a difference in their lives, and to obtain full and fair monetary compensation for their injuries.

We firmly believe that it’s essential to meticulously prepare each case we handle as if it will go to trial. Insurance companies and our opponents know that we zealously advocate for every client we represent.

We will not under any circumstance compromise the full value of a case for a quick settlement.

We devote all of our resources, skills and experience to handling select cases involving serious personal injuries.  Our clients have suffered permanent, life-changing injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, amputation injuries (loss of limb), severe burns, birth injuries, or injuries from hospital and medical malpractice. Some of our clients have lost a family member to wrongful death due to someone else’s negligence in a car accident, workplace accident or medical malpractice.

We recognize that a serious injury changes a person’s life in ways that cannot be addressed by money alone. We strive to help each of our clients restore independence, dignity and meaning to their life.
