How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
Nearly a decade ago, I decided to focus exclusively on personal injury cases when, as a former insurance defense attorney, I repeatedly observed insurance companies taking advantage of innocent victims (and families) who were presenting legitimate personal injury claims. Insurance companies simply do not believe that people can be hurt in a car accident unless someone breaks a bone, is paralyzed, or dies. This hardened mindset, motivated only by money, is false and is not supported by scientific or medical evidence. People come in all shapes and sizes. Accidents affect us all very differently. The law, however, demands that we be treated equally and, regardless, fairly compensated for our injuries, harms and losses. Because of this very real conflict, I made an early career change to better align my work life with my personal beliefs.
What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others
As a personal injury attorney, I have had the unique privilege of working for (and with) some of the most distinguished trial lawyers in America. I have tried cases to verdict with a member of the Inner Circle an exclusive trial lawyer group limited to the nation's top 100 trial lawyers. In 2008, I was distinguished as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the American Trial Lawyers Association (ATLA). I have received that same accolade from the ATLA every year since. In 2012, I was also selected by the ATLA as a member of the elite, Top 40 Under 40 group. I am a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and have been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyer magazine for the past three consecutive years (2010-2013). I have also been actively involved with the Nevada Justice Association, ensuring that Nevada's citizens' right to a trial jury remains protected. These accolades pale in comparison to when a client thanks us for our work, regardless of the outcome.
What distinguishes your law firm from others?
My law firm is distinguished from other law firms in a variety of ways. First, we specialize in practicing personal injury and wrongful death claims. Most law firms provide a variety of services. We do not practice in other areas of the law. Every single client we represent is an individual who needs help, typically against an insurance company. We do not represent insurance companies or large, faceless corporations. Lawyers who practice with other law firms refer their personal injury clients to my office. They trust that we have something more to offer the client. This trust is priceless.
The truth is, most personal injury cases are difficult and it takes a lot of time to ensure that we secure a full recovery for our client. Perhaps most importantly, I am very accessible. I do not own a large firm, with tons of staff and administrative workers. You don't have to weave your way around front desks, secretaries or paralegals to talk with me about your case. Consequently, when you call and want to talk to your lawyer, I may very well answer the phone. If not, I have two very well trained legal assistants who will help you in my absence.
