Our Approach

We place an emphasis on getting to know your needs.  We know that your case is very important to you and we want to make sure we hear your goals and concerns regarding your case.

About Us


Your case involves life changing events and we know how much it matters to you.  That's why it matters to us.

You need to choose an attorney that understands you.


It is so important that you feel comfortable with the attorney that you choose.  You need to be able to communicate and feel like your attorney is doing the best job possible in your case and also keeping you informed along the way.  

We represent people injured on the job and those injured due to the fault of others. We are rescue people!


We care about our clients and it shows in the relationships that we build.  We are big animal rescue people too, taking part in transporting dogs and cats from shelters in the area to their new homes all over the country.
