Firm Overview

We have 25 years' of experience in handling strictly personal injury claims including Social Security Disability, Automobile Accidents and Workers' Compensation.

Example cases

Eventually the claim was resolved without going to court for a seven figure settlement covering the client's medical expenses in excess of $150,000.00 plus future medical expenses, wage loss and pain and suffering. Numerous Social Security Disability claims where the client was initially denied and we were able to get benefits awarded without having to go to court for a hearing.
