If you've never worked with an attorney before, let me start by saying I understand the anxiety you must be feeling. In many ways, choosing an attorney is like choosing a doctor — you have to entrust that person with something important and hope that they are the expert they claim to be. When you reach out to me, you will be encouraged to ask questions and get the information you need before we move forward with your case.
Since 1979, I’ve dedicated my practice to personal injury. Every client I work with has the advantage of my experience on their side.
Your situation may feel overwhelming right now, but my role is to help you understand and navigate your legal obstacles.
My desire to help others comes from my early life work experience as a steelworker, police officer, and my service in the U.S. Army. Now I am proud to defend and protect those who have been hurt by workplace accidents, faulty products, car wrecks, and medical malpractice.
Many of my clients have learned the hard way that the so-called "professionals" they trust do not always uphold the level of service they should. Medical professionals misdiagnose, employers fail to prevent unsafe work conditions, and police officers use excessive force. When these things happen to someone, that person needs to be able to voice their concerns and get legal advice without having to worry that their attorney will treat them the same way.
I offer free consultations for exactly this reason. In other words, when you contact me with questions, I’m not going to start off our relationship by burdening you with a fee. Instead, I will invite you to tell me about your situation, answer your questions, educate you on your options, and let you decide how you want to proceed. If you choose to hire me right on the spot, great. We can sit down to determine our next steps from there. If you decide to walk away, that’s alright, too. I know from many years of experience that it’s important to choose an attorney who you feel is the right fit for you.
For those who do entrust me with their case, I take that responsibility very seriously. Not only do I strive to provide them with the best possible service, but I also share with them my legal knowledge. That way, they have a better understanding of what’s going on with their case and can make better, more informed decisions as we move forward.
