Meet Our Attorneys And Staff

When you work with us you will work with our team of two very experienced trial lawyers and a dedicated paralegal.

This means you get our singular and focused attention. You will not be passed off to a junior attorney fresh out of school. When we take your case, we take it because after decades of personal injury and dispute resolution experience we believe we can help. If we are unable to help we will tell you so or direct you to a trusted attorney who can.

A Firm With A Statewide Reputation

There are three reasons behind our established and continued case success, record making monetary awards for our clients and landmark legal achievements in the courts: Our knowledge, dedication and drive.

When we take your case, we are committed to attaining your goal to the very end.
