Our firm is a civil litigation and family law practice. We primarily handle cases involving serious injuries and family law matters. The firm was established in 2010 with a mission to be cost effective while taking the risk necessary to pursue our client's goals. To date, we have been successful in making steps towards creating a lucrative practice in these areas of law.
Motor vehicle injuries: We have successfully resolved multiple low-impact collisions for the 6 figure settlements. These cases can be very difficult to establish substantial damages because adjusters and jurors typically view these cases as soft-tissue injuries. Injuries that don't involve broken bones or long term impact. However, we have been able to convince otherwise.
Injured on a property: These cases are very difficult to establish liability because the defense will usually show that the plaintiff wasn't paying attention to where he/she was going. They also control most evidence that would establish that their property was in dangerous condition. In 2014, we have been able to resolve a wrongful death case, in a confidential settlement, that was sizable. We established through discovery that defendants maintained a condition that should have been repaired but they neglected to do so. Clients recognize, and the opposing side become convinced, that we take a practical approach to cases that works.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?
Most clients have busy lives and have a difficult time absorbing how the law works. Most clients have trouble recognizing the realities of their case. After all, if they are seeing an attorney they probably feel that they were wronged. This is why it is our style to be frank about the likelihood of success in a case when speaking to a client. Clients are entitled to this type of candor especially when they are spending time and resources on a lawsuit.
