If you think you have a case: What to do next
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury or wrongful death, or experienced discrimination or harassment, your first step is to call us for a free confidential consultation. Please don’t wait. The earlier in the process we are contacted, the quicker we are able to assign investigators to your case, before evidence is lost or disturbed.
We will evaluate your case carefully, provide solid legal counsel, and give you candid advice. We will discuss our fees so there are no surprises. We take most cases on a contingency fee basis:
No recovery, no fees.
We will treat you with respect and aggressively pursue fair compensation for your injuries. When we take a case, we agree to take it all the way to trial. Many cases result in settlements because lawyers who represent insurance companies, big pharma and large corporations know we have the financial resources, legal skill and determination to go to court, present convincing arguments and win. Our track record speaks for itself.
Winning fair compensation for our clients is goal number one, but we also take pride in restoring respect for our clients. There is no greater reward for us than to hear a client tell us, “You made a difference in my life.”
This is what you should expect from us:
- Attorneys and staff who will listen and show compassion
- A legal team with experience and skill
- An attorney who knows your case backwards and forwards
- An attorney who will provide sound, candid counsel
- A firm that is open and transparent about fees
Frequently Asked Questions
How will my case be evaluated?
We will listen carefully to your story, ask questions, look at relevant documents and give you a candid legal assessment.
Will I be charged for consulting with you?
No. Our consultations with potential clients are free.
What happens if you decide to take my case?
We will lay out a legal strategy and take the first steps toward getting you fair compensation for your injuries. The majority of our cases are taken on a contingent fee basis. If there is no recovery for you, there is no fee for us.
Will my case go to trial?
We assume every case we take will go to trial, and we prepare as if it will. However, attorneys for large corporations and insurance companies know we will go to trial and have a successful track record of winning, so they often offer large payouts to avoid the cost of preparing for and going to trial.
What will my role be as the case goes forward?
We will remain in close contact with you. You are our client and you are the person who knows your story. We won’t waste your time, but we will keep you informed about how the case is progressing.
Who will be working on my case?
We have a team of experienced trial lawyers who are backed up by talented associates. Your attorney will always be in charge of your case and the person who provides you counsel.
Is it all right to ask about an attorney’s experience and whether he or she has been sanctioned?
You have every right to ask these and other questions so you have the highest confidence in the attorney you retain to handle your case. We have provided extensive profiles about our team of attorneys on our website and are pleased to answer any question you may have about our record and reputation.
