Education. Empowerment. Guidance.
Life changing events happen. You cannot rewind time and stop a devastating injury to yourself or a family member, or severe sexual harassment.
What you can do is learn what to do to protect yourself. Your family. And then take action.
That's where we come in. We believe in educating individuals about their legal rights and the complex legal process before they hire a lawyer. Once hired, we empower our clients to stand up for their rights against large institutions and insurance companies. Along the way we use our knowledge and experience to advocate for and guide our clients towards making the right decisions for themselves and their families.
Serious Injuries and Medical Errors
If you, or someone you care about, have been seriously injured you very likely have many questions, about your care, rights, and how to protect your family. We answer these questions every day. We represent clients in serious injury cases including:
- Auto accidents, including texting while driving
- Premises Liability and property accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Animal attacks
- Podiatry Malpractice
- Medical malpractice
- Failure to diagnose cancer or delayed diagnosis
- Hospital negligence
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
Sexual Harassment and FMLA retaliation
If you have been subjected to severe sexual harassment, or terminated after exercising your rights under the FMLA, we may be able to help. Our employment practice is limited to helping individuals in the most severe cases of inappropriate sexual harassment and discrimination.
How We Can Help You (What Makes Us Different)
Every law firm will tell you that they have many years of “combined experience”, or that they've collected “millions” for clients, or that they offer “free consultations”. We can say that too, but we don't think it's helpful to you.
We take a different approach to representing victims.
We only represent individuals and small, local, companies. Not big companies or insurance companies. Ever. We also do not dabble in several practice areas - we limit our practice to representing individuals and small, local, companies, in employment and personal injury/medical malpractice cases. That's it.
We are not a large firm mill. Intentionally. We both started our careers in large law firms and decided long ago to stay small. We accept a small number of cases and focus on them. This means that your case will not be dumped onto someone else.
Other lawyers trust us to refer their friends, family and clients with employment and serious injury matters. This often includes defense lawyers. Referrals make up the majority of our business.
We are married, to each other. Because of that we very much take a family approach to our law firm and to our clients. Clients are not numbers to us; they are an extension of our family and we take that seriously.
We turn away most cases. You may think this is not a good thing, but doing so allows us to focus completely on those cases that we do accept.
We are transparent. We believe that the more you know, the better we will have served you. We don't believe that the legal profession should be shrouded in mystery. We provide a ton of information – both on our website and throughout the course of our representation – because we believe that educating you is a critical step in the process.
