By focusing on a relatively few number of catastrophic injury cases, our firm will always give you the care and attention you deserve.

We limit our practice to only the most serious injury cases involving brain injury, spinal cord injuries or death. Because we help only clients with the most serious injuries, we don't have a “volume” practice, like other law firms who take anything that comes in the door. As our client, you will know and work directly with us, your lawyers - not just a legal assistant or paralegal.


Our firm has a track record of jury verdicts for brain and spinal cord injury survivors.

Our firm has received the highest peer review ratings because we win cases - not just through settlements - but in the courtroom and in trial with juries and judges. With a proven track record of litigating serious cases against big hospitals and corporations, the other side knows we have the financial strength to go the distance.


No up-front costs or fees whatsoever unless we win your case.

Through trial, a typical case will cost in excess of 150, 000 for things like expert witnesses, depositions, filing fees and exhibits. And this is in ADDITION to the attorney’s fees. Most families can’t afford to pay fees or costs so we handle most of our clients on a contingency fee basis. This means we front all of the costs and get paid from a percentage of the recovery. And if we lose (which fortunately only rarely happens), you don’t owe us a dime for fees or costs.

We've helped brain and spinal cord injury survivors and their families recover millions for care and treatment.
