CLIENT PAYS NOTHING UP FRONT
In matters of serious personal injury and wrongful death our clients pay no costs or attorney fees unless there is a recovery. It is important for clients to understand that our firm makes a substantial investment in court costs and expert witness fees to develop your case for trial.
Preparing a case for trial can be expensive. One of the main reasons is the increasing demand for proof from experts. This can include doctors, experts on accident reconstruction and liability, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, engineers, and accountants.
If no recovery is made in your case, you will not be responsible for any of these costs.

Insurance coverage is not always there when you need it the most. It is usually in your hour of greatest need when you learn that insurance coverage will not apply. In some instances, the insurance company for the responsible party disputes liability and says you were at fault and not their insured. The responsible party denies an accident was their fault. There are no witnesses. It is your word against theirs.
In other cases, your insurance company denies coverage saying that an exclusion hidden in the policy applies. When this happens you feel powerless. You feel betrayed and cheated. You have faithfully paid your insurance premiums on time for years. Just when you need help the most from your insurance company that says they have your back in countless television commercials, they turn their back on you.
It is important to have lawyers committed to fighting for your interests when dealing with powerful insurance companies who deny you coverage. You need lawyers who are experienced in helping you investigate claims on your behalf who understand the complexities of litigating against insurance companies.
Defective products have notoriously been part of our society for many years. Rarely does a week pass that we don’t hear on the news a report of someone who is injured or killed because of a product that was either defectively designed or manufactured. Examples of these products include automobiles, toys, medical devices or drugs, tools, and machinery. In many cases, manufacturers were fully aware of the dangerous propensities of their products long before they were sold to the public who was unaware of the hidden dangers. In many cases, defendants have been held liable for exemplary damages in the millions of dollars for such deliberate and malicious conduct.
Many individuals have developed rare forms of cancer as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals. Such exposure usually occurs to people in their occupation. Two good examples are exposure to asbestos and benzene.
