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.

    I've helped thousands of clients and have given information to many more times that , and I'd be happy to speak with you about your case. Call me for an appointment!

Legal Answers
5444 Questions Answered

Q. due you know any lawyer that will take a case from a women who had direct inguinal hernia surgery in 2001.
A: The issue is if they remove it you want it saved. I don't see a likely case until you can identify that item. Check the hospital records for the bills for the surgery--that might state what it was that was put in. Also hospitals frequently have the records that far back.
Q. If my at fault driver caused me over 50000 in bills. Her coverage is 50000 how can I get compensation
A: Contact a member of the Fla Justice Assn--for the county where the wreck happened--they give free consults.
Q. Can a medical provider who writes a letter for an "Emotional Support Animal" (ESA) be held liable for later injuries?
A: No.
Q. My ex caused scarring on my face with mayonnaise 25 yrs ago which now I see in the mirror after shaving numbers, letters
A: you would have seen it about 25 years ago if she caused that. In any event, there is a statute of limitations. But to be on the safe side, check with a lawyer who gives free consultations in injury cases. However understand unless your wife has a lot of money there will be no money to cover her for your insurance.
Q. My son is a youth a lawrence Hall. I need to file two lawsuits of cases of negligence. please refer me to an attorney
A: Contact the Juvenile Justice Center or the Childrens Defense Fund, and ask for the names and contact information for their "cooperating attorneys" in that part of Illionois. They will give you a free consultation.
Q. Had a fall went to hospital and couldn’t be treated cause of my weight
A: Not sure they couldn't do anything. You certainly would not be the first person with weight issues. However if you can follow up with your family doctor. I'm not sure what the question is. If it's can you sue the hospital, usually not unless you can show some definite harm came about because of it. Having some pain isn't the same as having an injury that you would not have as badly if they had taken care of you.
Q. If I had a injury years ago and got in a accident could I be reinjured?
A: Definitely. If you had fully recovered you have a new injury. If you hadn't you have a new injury on top of the old one, an aggravation. Either way, if it's not your fault get with a member of the Texas Trial Lawyesrs Assn for the county where the wreck happened. They give free consults.
Q. I got hit in a parking lot intersection back right tire area by another driver my insurance is saying it’s my fault?
A: Tell your company you expect them to stick up for you. That's why you have insurance. But if they want to say it's your fault, you may have to go with their finding because at the end of the day, your goal is to avoid being sued and if you are to have the insurance cover it. You can always challenge the at fault finding if and when they try to increase your rates.
Q. No judgment in court on an accident..its been 2 years now trying to revoke my license
A: likely. I am assuming you had no insurance. See if you can get the clerk to show that there is no open case or closed case with a judgment against you.
