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 in 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 the 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 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.
