...and everywhere in between.
- Workers' Compensation
- Construction and work injuries
- Free Consultation
There is never a charge for your initial consultation - in person or over the phone.
- Contingent Fees
You only pay us if we are successful.
- Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
All of the injury cases we handle are on a "contingent fee" basis. This includes workers' compensation and personal injury claims. This means that you pay attorney fees only if there is a settlement or recovery in your case. If there's no recovery, you pay nothing. There are also expenses involved in pursuing a claim, such as the cost of obtaining medical records and reports, investigations, filing fees, expert witnesses, etc. Except in very rare or unusual cases, we don't ask you for any money when you hire us or at any time while we are handling your case. We pay the expenses of the lawsuit and recover those expenses only if we are successful.
