An Overview of Our Practice

We provide comprehensive counsel to individuals and businesses, handling matters involving:

  • Personal injury — We focus our personal injury practice on the needs of injured people, handling a wide range of injury claims, including those involving motor vehicle accidents, as well as construction site accidents and premises liability cases. We litigate product liability claims involving household items and consumer products, as well as cases involving dangerous or defective motor vehicle components. Our attorneys also handle medical malpractice actions involving misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, anaesthesia errors and birth injuries.
  • Children Abuse and Sexual Abuse.  We represent children and their families who are injured at school or other institutions who are supposed to care for these vulnerable youths.  Instead, these school and other agencies will often psychically or sexually abuse these children.  We also represent special needs children who are physically or sexually assaulted by other special needs children.   We have a team of experts who will determine the institution’s failures as well as child psychologists and psychiatrists that help us assess your child’s damages.
  • Foreclosure defense — We will help you understand why you should hire a foreclosure defense attorney and what a foreclosure lawyer can do to help you. Our attorneys protect the rights of homeowners who have been victims of predatory lending practices, including individuals who have mortgages that are underwater. We will always aggressively assert your rights against foreclosure, and will help you explore alternatives, such as mortgage modification [Link to Practice Page], to avoid foreclosure. In our opinion, it is never too late to fight foreclosure.
  • Business issues — We advise businesses and business owners on matters related to business formation, preparing and filing all necessary documents to set up your enterprise. We will help you negotiate and execute contracts that protect your business, including vendor, customer, licensing and employment agreements. We also represent businesses and business owners as plaintiffs or defendants in litigation, such as cases involving breach of contract, unfair competition and ownership disputes.
