Professional Experience
We have obtained multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients. However, we have also been proud to work just as hard for our clients in more modest claims. In each case, we ask ourselves the same question: How can we assemble the facts and law to obtain the best possible result for our client.

We guide our clients through each step of the claims process. It is a fact that most injury cases in our State are resolved without the necessity of a full blown trial. However, we are always prepared to take a case through trial, even appeal if warranted. We believe that the best way to achieve a favorable settlement is to have the respect of the defense, that they understand that we will do whatever it takes within the bounds of the law and others to achieve a just result from our clients. We believe we have earned that respect.

MOTOR VEHICLE We have successfully represented clients in virtually every type pf accident involving a motor vehicle, including:

- Bicycles
- Pedestrians
- Motorcycles
- Tractor trailer truck
- Pick up truck
- Buses
- Trains
- Defective motor vehicle
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist

We are not engineers or doctors, but we have become familiar with the engineer, accident reconstructionist and medical issues involved in such cases and can bring in appropriate and effective experts when needed.

We have extensive experience in the insurance issues that arise in such cases:

Medical insurance

The duty of a defendants in and remedies for bad faith

SLIP AND FALL We have represented clients in numerous premier liability cases, e.g., snow and ice, defective sidewalk, cases involving the state and municipality.

As with other cases, we are very familiar with the medical issues involved in such cases and the insurance issues that sometime result.
