Your injuries are bad enough. Trying to justify them in the court system can be an even more bruising experience. I clear a path and put myself between you and the legal battles. My job is to protect your health and peace of mind as you recover and deliver the justice and compensation you deserve.
When you’ve been seriously injured your priorities suddenly shift. You’re less worried about revenge and more worried about being made whole. You want your life back. I make sure that whatever solution the court comes up with addresses all of your needs – medical bills, job, income, family, emotional trauma – everything you need to get your life back on track.
Yes, I’ve delivered million dollar awards to my clients. I’ve also worked on far smaller cases. No matter the size of the case, I’m often able to get more money than expected by knowing how to attack the problem from multiple angles. It’s amazing how much can be accomplished when the goal isn’t to make me look good, but to get you every dollar possible. Maybe that’s why I’m one of the few Personal Injury attorneys that actually allows his firm to be rated by the Better Business Bureau. We’ve had their highest rating – A+ -- for years now. When you consistently deliver results for your clients, you’re not afraid of their feedback.
Attorney used to mean advocate, but sometimes it can be tough to tell if the lawyer is really on your side. I’ll stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you throughout your ordeal and tell you the truth every step of the way.
In fact, let’s start with a little truth right now. Read enough attorney websites and here’s what you’ll find…
Protecting you doesn’t mean picking a fight. Instead I focus on being right. That’s a heck of a lot more intimidating. In law, being right can take down whole companies and teams of lawyers. In one case, I was able to convince the insurance company to pay a million dollar settlement without ever going to court.
The law may be, but answers shouldn’t be. You’ll never get legal double speak from me – just plain, honest talk.
What they mean is some cases aren’t as profitable. Other attorneys don’t want you to know that there are “good” injuries and “bad” injuries. The “good” ones are visible – things like broken bones, surgeries, and missing limbs. The “bad” injuries aren’t as easy to see or understand, but are just as damaging to your life and livelihood, like waking up every day in severe back pain. Those cases aren’t as easy to win. It takes more personal attention and a committed attorney who believes in you and your pain to see it through.
If that’s true, then what’s also true is that they’re looking to qualify you. They want to find out if you’re a potential pay day. If not, you’ll get turned down or shuffled off to a less experienced attorney in the firm. I’m here to help you. Not every case can win a million dollars, but every person who is unfairly injured deserves protection and compensation.
So much of the law is timing. Knowing when to hold your ground and go to court. Knowing when to push for a settlement -- but not too soon. Because I’m involved in the case from the moment it starts I get to know you - your needs and desires - so I can do the right thing at the right time for you.
