Our Mission

We are a completely results-driven law firm.  We aren’t interested in taking on hundreds of clients and working in a settlement factory.

We reject more than 95% of all those who seek our help.  We take fewer clients so that we can focus completely on the cases we do take.  We prepare every case like it’s a trial and then negotiate from a position of strength.  If we don’t get a fair offer, we are prepared and willing to go into the courtroom, where our verdicts have outperformed last/best offers by more than three to one.
