We pride ourselves on providing our clients with high quality legal services by taking the time to listen and then working together on a strategy to get the best possible results.
We will work with you every step of the way to make sure you receive the legal services you need. At our firm, your case will be handled by one of the principal attorneys and you will deal directly with that attorney from the beginning of your case until final resolution. We will always keep you informed as to the status of your case and we encourage your questions. We maintain strict client confidentiality and will always protect your privacy.
We offer free personal injury consultations and case reviews. Injury cases are handled on a contingency fee. This means that if we do not obtain a settlement you do not owe us an attorney fee.
