As an attorney, I care a great deal about performing good work. That’s what I’ve been doing for clients for more than sixteen years. I do this work by assisting clients who have been harmed to be fairly compensated for that harm. When a person or a company acts in a negligent way, they are responsible for the results of that negligence. This is an important and foundational principle of the free society in which we live. I want to make sure that this social contract is honored.
Unfortunately, money and greed – in particular: profit hungry insurance companies – they get in the way of fairness. Instead of paying fair settlement amounts, insurance companies take every opportunity to deflect blame and low ball the amount they should pay. Fortunately, our society allows for jury trials. I am a firm believer in the jury system. Nowhere else in society can a group of peers listen to facts and make a decision, even if it is unpopular or is against a person or company with money, connection and power.
As an attorney, I feel an overwhelming obligation to tell my client’s story. It is important that the story be told in a powerful way, so that others understand what has actually taken place. I do my best to listen to my client’s concerns, to hear about the harm that he or she has suffered and to really understand the effect the harm has had. I regularly visit my clients’ homes to really see what their lives are like and get a real sense of what impact an injury has had. Put simply, I sincerely care about my clients’ cases.
I’ve had great clients who have put their trust and faith in me. Fortunately, I have shown myself to be worthy of this trust and faith. I work hard to get great results and I feel blessed that I have been successful in doing so. I treasure the feeling that comes from obtaining a positive result for a client even if it has required taking a long, hard road.
