I’ve worked with injured folks for the past decade, both in the context of auto accidents and worker’s compensation. I know that when you suffer an injury, you need firm and aggressive advocacy so your voice can be heard. But you also need frank and honest guidance so you can make good decisions for your future and for your family’s future. I provide both.
When you call my firm, I’m the one you’ll talk to on the phone, not some screener who passes you along to an associate. I take your call, I hear your story, I assess your needs.
Being injured is hard. Going through a lawsuit can make it even harder. My goal is to get you to closure so you can start feeling human again. It’s personally injury law with a personal touch.
