“I am here to protect my clients’ interests, no matter how big the obstacles in my way. Very often, insurance companies representing defendants are determined to settle claims for less than full value, because other attorneys are unwilling to invest the time and resources to take a case to trial. I believe that every client deserves to be fairly compensated and that is why I’m willing to challenge insurance company counsel and vigorously represent my clients at trial. Compensation never truly makes up for what has happened to our clients, but with our skilled legal team, we can begin the healing and recovery process.”
