My Standout Guarantees to Clients

I will only represent a very small, select group of seriously and catastrophically injured people, so as to dedicate myself more fully to each client I represent. Your case will never become a dusty file in an office where there are hundreds of other clients. Ever.

You will never wait days to get a callback or email response. Never.
You will never call me complaining that you have not been able to reach me. Never.

I will never handle dozens of cases at one time because what attorney can do that and still do a great job for you and your family?

You deal directly with me. Always.
You will not get handed off to another lawyer. I handle your case. Always.
I take your phone calls. Not a staffer, not an associate. Me. Always. I trust and respect my staff, but it is me that you want to talk with. And you will. Guaranteed.

I value you as a Client.  Not as a number.

I am kind. Understanding. Compassionate. I know that I work for you, not the other way around. And I treat you that way.

I answer your questions. Quickly. Accurately. Honestly.

I will ready your case for trial or settlement as quickly as I can. 

We will speak regularly about your case and I will update you about the steps I take to move your case to a successful resolution as quickly as I can.

I fight aggressively for you. Always.

I work hard to get you results. Always.
