We provide a free initial case evaluation, and all cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that our firm does not recover a penny unless we win. It also means our interests our aligned-the more we recover for you, the bigger our fee is. We do not require any payment from you unless we obtain a verdict or settlement.

Get The Help You Need

It’s important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner we are involved, the better we can prepare your case. As time passes, evidence is lost and witnesses forget what happened.
