Firm Overview

We call ourselves the "personal" personal injury firm because we strive to really get to know our clients and their families so we can learn and show and insurance adjusters or jurors how an injury impacted their lives.

We've found that without an in-depth knowledge of our clients, it's difficult to have an insurer or a jury pay a fair and just award.

We are a "holistic" law firm. This means we are in the forefront of exploring the field of post-traumatic growth, a field that explores how trauma can often bring about positive changes in our clients' lives...despite the inevitable pain and suffering serious injuries bring.

We believe that the more we know about your injuries and how they impact your life and the lives of your family, the better we can present your case and obtain a fair award.

Even though we're holistic lawyers, we don't hesitate to go to trial, if necessary, to obtain a fair award. A list of some of our verdicts and settlements is found on our primary web site,

We count ourselves lucky to have a job where we are continuously learning more about our clients and where we learn about new advances in the legal, medical and psychological fields every day.

We encourage and do everything in our power to help our clients and their families legally, emotionally, and medically.

We have handled personal injury and wrongful death cases exclusively since 1982. We are never too busy to answer any questions clients have.

Rated 10.0 by Avvo-com, the premium attorney rating service, we are also members of the Million Dollar Forum, an organization of attorneys with multiple verdicts or settlements over one million dollars.
