In personal injury claims, the goal of our firm is to help you get full and fair compensation. Often, insurance companies are involved in injury claims because they represent the driver, doctor, property owner, or other party responsible for harming you. Insurers do not care about you personally. Their bottom line is about their profit and they may try to get you to settle for less than you should receive.
If you have been permanently injured, you deserve to be compensated for medical expenses, wage losses, pain and suffering, decreased quality of life, emotional distress, or for the loss of a family member that you love. We will negotiate with the insurer to help you settle for a fair amount. We are also ready to take your case to court and present evidence to a jury to argue for a damage award that allows you to provide for your future.
Our Criminal Lawyers
Being arrested for a crime - or even being investigated for one - can be very frightening. Depending on the type of crime you are accused of, you could face a lengthy jail sentence, fines, the loss of your driver’s license, and a criminal record.
You need a lawyer who understands the criminal justice system and who can help you compose a strong defense when you are facing criminal charges. Our attorneys are not afraid to go to trial to help you raise defenses or introduce questions about your guilt. You have legal rights, including the right to be free from illegal searches and the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We will protect those rights and fight for your future.
Our Social Security Disability Lawyers
If an injury or an illness has made it impossible for you to work, our attorneys are here to help. You pay into the Social Security Disability system with your tax dollars and you deserve to get financial assistance from this important social safety net if you cannot earn a living anymore.
Unfortunately, more than half of all claimants for disability benefits have their applications denied. Our attorneys can help you to put together compelling evidence to convince the Social Security Administration that you deserve benefits. We can also represent you throughout all the stages of appeals that have been set up to help those who have a denied claim to fight for their right to compensation.
