Many law firms tout the “combined legal experience” of their attorneys and they bombard us with non-stop TV commercials. Because of advertising, you can get lost in the shuffle.

  • The combined experience of all the attorneys in a firm doesn’t help you; the actual experience of your attorney  is what counts.
  • Don't be arbitrarily assigned to an attorney who may be a novice and may have little or none of the experience you need.
  • You may never get to meet the lawyer who is supposed to be representing you; he or she may not even know your name.
  • Your case might not even handled by a lawyer – but by a non-lawyer case manager.
  • Appearing on T.V. doesn’t make a lawyer caring or effective; it doesn’t make a lawyer a good choice for you.


Unnecessary injury is difficult to accept. We strive to provide superior, hands on representation to achieve the very best results. Our clients know that they can rely upon & trust their lawyer.
