PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS

Recovering your health and obtaining fair compensation for injuries you have sustained is your primary concern and it’s ours as well. Using our experience and extensive resources on your behalf, we focus on achieving the highest possible monetary recovery for you.

CATASTROPHIC INJURY

We understand the full impact catastrophic injuries have on the lives of our clients. Our legal team has helped victims and their families dealing with:

traumatic brain injuries
spinal cord injuries (paraplegia/quadriplegia)
closed-head injuries
amputations
burns and disfigurement

We will evaluate losses and prove damages – medical, financial, vocational and quality of life — and develop a strong claim for present and future costs. Often, our reputation precedes us, so insurance companies are willing to negotiate reasonable settlement terms rather than go to trial.

THE COSTS

A serious injury not only causes physical harm, but can also drain your bank account. Recovery from personal injury generates shockingly high financial burdens for:

medical treatment
physical rehabilitation
lost income
damage to your car or other property
inability to perform activities of normal daily living, temporarily or permanently
significant pain and suffering, which may be ongoing

THE COMPENSATION

The law permits you to seek recovery after an accident to “make you whole again” — to be compensated in a manner that places you back in the position you were before the accident. Depending on your case, you may seek monetary compensation for:

loss of income while injured
loss of future earning capacity due to permanent injury
cost of medical expenses, current and future
property damage
pain and suffering
mental anguish/emotional distress
loss of consortium (loss of love or companionship due to the injury)
lost opportunity

EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS HAVE OVERTURNED CONVICTIONS

Imagine this nightmare: you are accused of and tried for a crime you did not commit. You’re innocent, yet you are convicted and sent to prison. This tragic scenario has played out in the American legal system far too often. Fortunately, in recent years, organizations and individuals have taken it upon themselves to do something about these miscarriages of justice. JUSTICE FOR THE WRONGLY CONVICTED

At right: details of these compelling exonerations.

WE STAND UP FOR THE INNOCENT

Our firm has earned a national reputation for taking wrongful conviction cases that other lawyers refuse as too difficult or politically sensitive. If you or someone you know is innocent of the crime for which they are accused or convicted, we are here to help you seek justice.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR CASE

Please call for an initial consultation, which is free of charge. If we take your case, we will work on a Contingent Fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if we win a monetary award or recovery of funds for you.
