  1. Custody of the children

  3. Support during negotiations

  4. Equitable Distribution of your marital property

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, we suggest that you schedule an appointment for a free consultation to discuss your case. Please call us or contact us via email.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Our extensive experience has taught us many valuable lessons about litigating madical malpractice cases, which include finding the best medical expert to help prove that a physician departed from good, acceptable, and proper medical procedures in treatinf our client and how that departure caused the client to endure harmful medical consequences.

PERSONAL INJURY

In prosecuting plaintiff personal injury litigation, we have established a formidable track record of excellence in maximizing the value of our client injuries.

Things to know, to do, and not to do:

1

Do not tell the potentially negligent health care provider that you are dissatisified and intend to pursue your legal remedies until you have secured the opinion of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

2

Provide the medical opinion from any other physical specializing in the same area of medicine as the physician who was allegedly guilty of malpractice, who exprressed an opinion that attributed blame to your treating healthcare provider.

3

Obtain all relevant medical records prior to scheduling an appointment 

4

If injured in an accident, never speak to the other parties' insurance company representative until you have spoken to an experienced personal injury attorney. Be wary of "hospital advisers" who tout the skills of an attorney who "allegedly" gets remarkable results for someone they know. That "advisor" is likely no more than a plant used by a desperate lawyer seeking business.

5

If you are injured in an automobile accident or as a result of a slip and fall or a trip and fall and either fractured a bone or impaired a body function or organ, you should necessarily call for an appointment.

6

If you are involved in an automobile accident where there is property damage and/or personal injuries, contact your insurance company immediately.

7

If injured in an accident, photograph the defect or car damage as soon as practicable.

8

Whether or not you are partly responsible for an accident does not necessarily prevent recovery.
