We’re the experts other attorneys and judges turn to when dealing with high-pressure, precedent-setting legal matters.

You won’t find our ads on television. You won’t see our faces on billboards. Most of our business comes through referral, and we are selective about the cases we handle. Because of this, we give each of our clients a high level of individual attention.

Our clients are people who have suffered grievous harm—physical, financial, or both—and who deserve justice and restitution. We work tirelessly to ensure that you receive both.
