Your thoroughness in case preparation, and outstanding presentation, is only surpassed by your personal sense of justice. Your character and feel for your craft are a credit to your profession. It was an extreme honor having you represent me.”

Fees
  • Free Consultation
  • Credit Cards Accepted
  • Contingent Fees
    Most cases we accept for litigation purposes are charged on a contingent fee basis. This means we receive a percentage of the money we recover for you as our attorney fee. If we do not recover money for you, we do not charge an attorney fee. Contingent fee representation works best for clients with discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination or sexual harassment cases. In some situations, such as where we are asked to negotiate an employment contract or severance package, we charge by the hour.
