About Us

The objectives of the firm are quite simple:

To develop a very personal practice where each client is treated with respect and dignity and their legal problems are efficiently handled at a minimum of cost to them; and

To do our best to reach the goals of the clients so that in the final analysis, equal justice for all is achieved in a honest and fair manner.

Most importantly, the clients should feel from their first step in this office that they are important, that their legal matters are important and that anything that is said or done in the law office is totally and absolutely confidential. Further, we want them to know that they can rely upon us to keep it that way. Many of the procedures in the office are geared to impressing upon the client our strict policy that we have towards confidentiality of the client's business - even when that strict confidentiality may be inconvenient to, not only the personnel in the office, but also to the client himself.

Our ultimate goal in this firm is to strive to continue to improve the quality of our services and the quantity of our clients without sacrificing our ability to efficiently and expertly handle the legal matter for each client. In that regard, we have refused to represent any insurance company's interest as our firm exclusively handles claims for the injured and disabled and has never represented or defended any insurance company.
