About Our Clients

We represent the newborn, the young, the middle and the aged. We address and faithfully document the full magnitude of each client’s physical, mental and emotional injuries so that the same can be forcefully and poignantly communicated to a jury. We use our advocacy, our skills and our resources to touch the lives of others so that they, as judges, are ultimately willing and able to sense a client’s loss—what he or she has been forced to endure—and, compensate them fully. The message is at once simple and powerful: building compassion through purpose, strength and resolve; working harder, longer, and better to achieve litigation success; treating clients as individuals not commodities.; using technology with old-fashioned sense to reach the desired outcome.
