How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

When I was younger, I was involved in a catastrophic accident in the city of Santa Monica. I was hit by a reckless driver. At the time, I knew nothing about the law or lawyers. Thankfully, with just a few broken bones my life was saved. However, my representation was futile. The attorney did not zealously represent me and ultimately I got a terrible settlement. Therefore, this practice area for me is personal. I was once a victim, a plaintiff, an injured party and I know what it feels like to be bombarded by medical bills, endless pain, and feeling hopeless. I know how to address my clients needs and will not throw them to some random associate. Every case is personal for me. Those days are long gone but the memories have not faded. I use those memories as fuel to fight the insurance company and insure my clients get the best representation.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are a boutique firm. We are not a factory. Every case is important and we do not run a mill. Clients have direct access to their attorney 24/7. The office has an open door policy and clients can walk in with or without an appointment. We do not throw our clients to a paralegal or legal secretary. We provide VIP service to our clients and thats why they keep coming back.
