When you get hurt and can’t work, it’s easy to lose faith in yourself, but trust me — you haven’t failed your loved ones just because you’ve sustained an injury. Since I’m here to be both your attorney and your advocate, I will make a point of helping you to remember that as your case progresses.
I define my work as encouraging insurance companies to do the right thing — that is, take care of injured workers. When they do anything less than that, I’m only too happy to step up and fight for a settlement that is fair to my client.
Keeping up with bills and other payments is a challenge on any given day. Add an injury to the mix, and the stress can begin to feel overwhelming. I understand these pressures all too well, and I want to help you overcome them. Let me step in and fight for you so that you can focus on recovery.
First-time clients are often surprised to hear my voice when they call the office. They expect to be passed off to a paralegal or assistant. But I believe that if you’re looking to get help from a lawyer, a lawyer is what you should get.
When you have questions about your case, don’t hesitate to reach out. No matter how heavy my caseload may be, I will always make time to return your call and address your concerns.
I will do everything in my power to resolve your legal matter with as little conflict as possible. However, if your case makes it to trial, you can rest assured that I will continue to counsel, guide, and fight for you until the situation is resolved.
Many workers are unaware of the laws that protect them from workplace negligence and other matters that could lead to physical and financial consequences. That’s why it’s crucial to speak to a knowledgeable attorney before taking any action after you’ve been hurt.
It's tempting to jump at the first offer you’re given, but your case is almost guaranteed to be worth more. Those initial payouts the insurance company offers don't take into account all of your needs, such as long-term medical care and lost wages. Rely on an experienced attorney to help you think through every factor and determine a fair settlement worth fighting for.
Once you and your attorney have discussed every facet of your case, you’ll have reached a fuller understanding of your rights as a worker and your injury’s worth. Armed with that knowledge, you’ll have the motivation you need to hold out for the compensation that should have been offered to you in the first place.
I don’t make promises lightly. I was raised to believe that my word means everything, and my handshake is a contract. That’s why, when you retain me as your attorney, it’s me you’re going to get — not an associate.
In the same sense, when I say I’m going to help you through your situation, I don’t mean I’ll start helping you then abandon ship when things get tough or the case escalates to the courtroom. I mean that I will guide you through the claim process from start to finish, acting as your counselor, advocate, and — if it comes down to it — trial attorney.
Every case is different, and so I can’t in good conscience promise any certain outcome. What I can promise, though, is that I will push for compensation that is fair to you and appropriate to the circumstances of your case.
The most central focus of my practice is workers’ compensation claims, and I am especially well-versed in handling cases that involve traumatic, even catastrophic injuries. However, I regularly take on other case types as well, such as personal injury claims involving car accidents, slip and falls, premises liability, product liability, and defective products.
Whether or not your legal concern falls precisely into one of these categories, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. My first priority is your well-being, so if it turns out I’m not the right person to represent you, I’ll be happy to refer you to a qualified personal injury attorney. What matters most is that you get the help you need.
Sometimes the greatest thing you can do for a client is recognize when to use outside resources.
If you have a workers’ compensation case that I can help you to resolve, don’t hesitate to reach out. In the same sense, if I am tasked with a personal injury claim that would benefit from your skill set, I’ll reach out to you.
