Legal Experience You Can Trust After A Serious Car Accident
A motor vehicle accident can upend your entire life in a matter of moments. The injuries can limit your ability to work or enjoy normal activities.

Let Me Handle Every Aspect Of Your Case So You Don’t Have To
When you hire my firm, you can be sure you’ll work directly with me from start to finish. And in most cases, I can do the majority of the work for you, allowing you to focus on your recovery and on taking care of those you love. Here is what you can expect as a client:
Independent investigation: Police reports and insurance claims can be incomplete, biased or otherwise flawed. As your attorney, I conduct my own investigation into the accident, noting how it happened, who was at fault and whether there were factors that exacerbated the damage. I then carefully calculate the amount of damages appropriate in your case, including compensation for medical bills, physical rehabilitation, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
Negotiating with insurers: Dealing with your insurance company or the other driver’s insurer can be stressful, especially when you are trying to recover from your injuries. Insurance companies care about their own bottom line, which means they have an interest in denying your claim or settling for as little money as possible.
From the moment you hire me, I can take over all communications with insurers so that you don’t have to worry about tracking down documentation or potentially saying something that could damage your case. Furthermore, I will aggressively advocate for a settlement that meets your financial needs and accurately reflects what you’ve been through.
Taking your case to trial: Settling out of court is usually the best outcome for all parties involved in litigation. I will seek a settlement first. But if the insurer/defendant refuses to make a reasonable offer, I will not hesitate to take your case to trial. I have considerable experience inside and outside of the courtroom, and I will utilize it to maximize your settlement or jury award.
