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)!

  • 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. Prison reform
A: Why not contact the Pennsylvania Civil Liberties Union Prison Rights project, speak to one of the workers to see how frequent the probglem is, is it a state prison vs county prison issue, etc. Whether it is cruel and unusual as a matter of law depends on many items specific to each case. However it may violate the State Consitution, it may violate state laws and regulations.
Q. I was violently assaulted twice by my ex in 2013 when he suffocated me and in February of 2014 when He strangled me.
A: Contact a womens rights law center and ask. 215-928-9801 Good luck!
Q. Doing new story on Prison built in 1850 was trespass without being on property
A: The wiretap act has no application to video that I am aware of. Contact the Pennsylvania Civil Liberties Union--sounds like the type of case that they may be able to get a law school clinic to bring on your behalf.
Q. Is it okay for a teacher to tell student not to listen to his parents
A: If the parents are saying don't study, yes, though I would word it differently. It matters what it's about and the context it would happen in. Chances are a lot was left out of what was filtered back. Why not set down with the teacher, get their side.
Q. My sister crashed into a lady's car, while no major damage recorded by the cop the lady is suing us for over 10K+ estim.
A: If there is insurance on your sister's car then she needs to report it to them. That's what the insurance is for--many people feel their injuries later. To your sister it's a bump. I bet if it happened to her she'd be saying it was a CRASH... You said "our insurance." They are pros, let them handle it--that's what premiums are paid for. Trust me, no one has any real interest going against your sister. But on no account should anyone in your family post on facebook or any social media. At all. Sorry, sis, but you just do not speak of it to anyone--except your own insurance.
Q. I was in a car wreck two cars hit me both was a fault can I sue both car insurance policy and know how much the policy
A: Contact a member of the La. Trial Lawyers Assn for the Parrish where the wreck happened. They give free consultations.Do not give statements to anyone until then. Sometimes both being at fault is good, sometimes it's a headache. Get the full police report (you may have to pay).Go to a doctor.
Q. When a driver has an accident, resulting in generallyt minor property damage, but leaves the scene of the accident
A: Generally look on it as likely to be unless the only damage was to your car. I agrre, get photos etc but you should consult an attorney who handles traffic charges in the county where it happened, so you know what to do if someone reaches out to you. Like the police.
Q. Can I be taken to small claims court and be sued by insurance through subrogation?
A: If you are being sued by the person, you may want to settle, get a release of all claims, put on the check that it is a release of all claims, then you turn around and defend the subrogation case saying that is really a case that could have been brought by the other person, they released you, not your fault. You are no worse off and you head off a full on injury case.
Q. car for a dealership I lost my temporary tag now I have a citation for no registration plates
A: Plead not guilty, but as you lost the tag it may be on you. Get the tags asap, have proof of insurance, all the good stuff.
