My commitment to you:

I will handle your matter personally. Never will your case be pawned off on a paralegal or secretary.

Every document in a legal proceeding is always fully explained page by page. You should know what you are signing, and there is never an additional charge to have things explained fully by your Lawyer.

If  your case involves complex litigation, I work with some of the finest board certified specialist firms in the state. In contingent fee cases there is no additional cost to you. I will act as  your liaison throughout the process, answering your questions and keeping you up on the status of your case. You will have reasonable access to me at all times and not be lost in some large firm's databank or support staff. Having and experienced attorney looking over your case is like getting a free second opinion throughout the course of your legal case NOT filtered through a big law office's support staff.

Hourly and flat fee agreements available, NO HIDDEN CHARGES, marshall's Fees, filing fees and taxes for services or requirements of the courts or government are passed on at cost. In contingent fee cases there are  No Fax fees, No charge for phone calls, No charge for copies, No internet documentation fees. When costs are incurred or additional billing is required you are told before the charges are incurred – No Surprises
