No one likes a bully. Yet, after a traumatic event in your life, that is exactly what the insurance company can seem like. Every day I fight zealously for my clients to get them the compensation they are entitled to, counsel them during a difficult period in their life, and protect my clients from those same bullies.
All attorneys can make promises, what separates our firm from the rest is the fact that we never stop working until you are completely satisfied and made whole again after a traumatic injury that was caused by someone else. Once I begin working on your case, the matter becomes personal to me. I always say, ‘I lose sleep so you don’t have to.
