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. my girl suicidal she threw herself at the car I was charged with accident bodily injury possible death
A: First, you need a criminal defense attorney. Second, do not discuss this case on any website even this one. Don't discuss it in emails. They are subject to being taken by court order. Do not erase anything.
Q. Who can I contact to help me with a denied car insurance claim? Someone hit me, and was clearly at fault.
A: If there was a police report and it supports you then make sure your insurance has it. If you had collision let your insurance take care of it. If not, get an estimate of the repairs etc and send it to the other company. If you were hurt see a doctor. Feel free to call us--we give free consults so you can have your questions answered.
Q. I have never been served papers and it's been 6 months since the case was opened. What are my options?
A: If you had insurance just notify them of the filing and let them handle it. I would send them a note, certified return receipt. If you get anything notify them.
Q. If my dog jump the fence and impregnated my neighbor's dog can the neighbor sue me for puppy support
A: I don't believe so. They would also have to prove paternity.
Q. My son 12 fell in history class and hit his head. His teacher left him on the floor crying.
A: Yes, but unless it caused an additional problem, made it worse its' not actionable.
Q. I'm a war/vintage style artist and I was wondering how can I legally use aircrafts and vehicles in all my prints?
A: As long as you aren't lifting the entire image and photo reproducing it no. You may paint a subject already painted--many art students do this. I'm not seeing the concern. If you are painting an aircraft shown in a photo it's not a copyright violation. I believe you may be over thinking this but if you have a specific concern why not ask a copyright lawyer.
Q. Should I have gone to a dr about my bruises
A: depends on the circumstances--I'm not seeing a full question here.
Q. after this happened I left 4 mins after and the two cop cars were side by side blocking the road I had to wait for them
A: You could argue it as you were in the car and not parked but why? So you can agitate police who you may encounter next time you visit your friend?
Q. I bought a car at a buy here pay here, i can't afford it anymore am I responsible for the loan on a voluntary repo?
A: Yes. You will be responsible for the balance, and they can sell it at a public auction and what they receive may not be much at all.
