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.

Q. Why the lawyer tells me to make up the amount of money to sue for? Do I or the lawyer suppose to?
A: Not quite. She or he was trying to say that it's not a fixed amount. Ask for their advice.
Q. Medical malpractice for Nevada Can a retired doctor still get sued even though he moved out of state?
A: Yes, though you may have a statute of limitations issue. Contact a member of the Nevada Justice Assn who handles medical negligence ASAP, as Nevada requires a medical opinion within that time.NJA members give free consultations.
Q. Can i have any right now to contact a lawyer
A: Certainly sounds like it. Give me a call and I can review your options in detail, suggest some good attorneys, who will take the case on a no-up front fee. . For the future if he needs care the Shriners have a great program for orthopedic injuries; I can discuss that option with you also..
Q. A car hit me from behind and then I slammed into the car in front of me
A: The guy who hit you. Make that clear. Contact a member of the New Hampshire Assn for Justice--they give free consultations.
Q. Can I sue uninsured motorist who hit my car and left?
A: Talk to your insurance.Chances are they will sue him and you want them to include your deductible claim. Watch what you do if you agree to accept the deductible from the uninsured guy as you don't want to affect the insurance company's right to go after that person--if you do they'll be looking at you!
Q. My daughter was in a car accident she was the victim but got citation for the accident. My Daughter was hit from lt. bk
A: It's only illegal if the left hand turn lane had a designated left turn signal and that signal was red. Big question is does she have time to plead not guilty. If there was significant damage or injuries, there would be a police report. Important to see that. Was there a camera at the intersection, or at any business at the intersection that would have caught it?CHeck that out ASAP as video gets dumped.
Q. Subrogation claim after uninsured car accident?
A: If the her is your girlfriend, then you can go legal or realism. Realism is if you don't have the money now you won't be able to pay her back. Secondly, has the case gone to judgment? Depending on the amounts bankruptcy is an option. Another issue is what you got for signing it. If it lacked "consideration" or some benefit to you, you may have a voidable contract. However, a lot depends on what you signed. At this point you really need to at least get a consultation with a lawyer, face to face. You may have to pay a consult fee. Pay it and consult.
Q. A guy hit me and died come to find out I was only leasing but thought I was buying I get nothing I need a car
A: You really need to contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice--they give free consultations.
