Summary

I have been representing individuals, families, and small businesses since I graduated from law school in 1975. I believe that most people get confused by the legal system especially with insurance questions-- the system turns them around, nobody explains anything, and that turns them off. I want them to know their rights--that's why we're called The Know Your Rights People. Access to justice is why I offer free consultations, and take death and injury cases on a contingent fee--which means I don't get paid until I get money for the person I represent. Unlike many attorneys, I don't represent insurance companies to avoid a conflict of interest. Also, unlike many attorneys, I charge only for costs outside of my office---many attorneys charge for postage, even phone fees--and then charge interest on that! I went to the University of Michigan, then to Georgetown University's Law School, and have a further degree, a Masters of Law, from Temple University. I have been in practice for over thirty five years, and have represented people from adjusters to veterinarians, whose family members have been killed or who have --through no fault of their own-- had to deal with fractures and all manner of other injuries, from many varieties of corporate and individual carelessness. Some lawyers say they only take "serious" cases--I believe that any injury that causes you limitations, pain, is serious to you. Give me a call if you have a legal question about any form of injury--if I can't help you, I'll at least try to tell you who can! And it won't cost you a dime --even the call is free--1-888-PA-LAWS-1 (1-888-725-2971)!

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    The insurance company is staffed by professionals whose job is to pay out as little as possible. Before you speak to them, you should have the opportunity to speak to someone who is on your side. A lot of law firms that advertise for personal injury cases also represent insurance companies! I don't represent insurance companies to avoid this conflict of interest. Every week I give free consultations to people who want to know their legal options--that's why my practice is called "The Know Your Rights People."(c) Too many lawyers don't care if their callers know why things happen in the law, or what resources may be available to them if they don't think an injury is "serious" enough for them. If you or a loved one has been hurt, then that injury is serious--and that's how I treat all callers. I've advised people with burn injuries, fatalities in their families, hit-and-run injuries, bicycle and motorcycle crashes, tractor trailer wrecks, medical mistakes, failures to diagnose, problems from dangerous medications and products. In fact, I'm proud that when insurance adjusters have been hurt or their family has been injured they call me to represent them! Whatever your injury or death question, call us. You can even use our toll free number: 1-800-367-5298. Put it in your phone so if a friend--or you--gets hit you can call for advice before you speak with the insurance adjuster!
  • Contingent Fees
    I take injury cases on a "contingent fee" which means I don't get paid until I get the other side to put money on the table. Most of my clients are average working people, without the money to pay the huge hourly fees insurance companies pay their lawyers. I want you to be able to have a lawyer if you've been hurt, so I set out to not charge up front fees for injured people or families who've had a loved one killed. I only get paid when I get money for you. It's that simple. Don't you wish other professions were like that? It doesn't cost a dime to talk to me, and it doesn't cost money to retain me as your lawyer. Unlike many other law firms I don't charge interest on casefile costs I advance, and I only get my costs back if and when I get money for you! You don't have to pay expenses up front as happens with many lawfirms.

Legal Answers
3435 Questions Answered

Q. is it true in a civil suit if everything is owned jointly you cannot get anything?
A: Only if the suit is against both persons, though there are a few exceptions. But collectability if you get a judgment is certainly an issue.
Q. My 21 year old son was found dead in his car August 13th. I live in AR. There is a video. How do i get info and copy?
A: Find out who has the video. Ask the victim assitance coordinator at your DA's office.
Q. my sister-in-law illegally evicted me out of her house a week ago can I sue her
A: If you had a lease and were paying rent, then contact an attorney who handles tenant's rights issues.
Q. Can I sue my cousine she sent me insulting message on Facebook where she accuse me of thievery without proof?
A: You can sue her but you will have to hire someone to pay her and it will cost money. I suggest you resolve this if possible through your and her family because the problem is most likely someone forgetting that facebook is public and trying to be spiteful without getting the public fallout. You can ask an attorney to send a "cease and desist" letter to her and facebook. You will have to pay for that.
Q. How I can resolve an improper petition to interplead funds?
A: Get a consult from a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn who handles malpractice--they give free consults.
Q. Is it legal to use my photo without permission? What shall I do? Thank you
A: If they had your permission to take it it generally isn't with restrictions. Did you send a (polite) note to them asking not to use it? Have you been harmed by it's use?
Q. So if self defense is for everyone, when women hit men can men hit back for self defense or is that wrong?
A: We don't answer hypothetical questions but you are entitled to reasonable self defense. That means if the woman is smaller/weaker you may cover up but punching her is likely to get a citation (though she may and should get one). Perhaps the best answer is to avoid people likely to assault you.
Q. Can i start a lawsuit against a medicaid transportation company because a driver pulled and pointed a gun at me
A: Contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Association. You should have reported it to the police.
Q. My car was damage as a result of falling off lift in a shop we were inside bay i am shaken up help
A: Contact a member of the New Jersey Assn for Justice--they give free consults, can advise you if psychological treament would be covered under the medpay provision of your insurance.
