We represent injury and accident victims (plaintiffs) in lawsuits! We never represent the insurance companies against you.

  • Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident?
  • Are you a construction worker injured at the job?
  • Were you hurt at work?
  • Have you fallen down on a sidewalk or on someone else’s property?
  • Did you or a loved one entrust your health to medical providers, only to get worse?
  • Have you been charged with a crime, or are getting a divorce? Have you been discriminated against by an employer?
