Dedicated to Fighting for Our Clients

Since being founded in 1939, our injury law firm has been successful in recovering more than $1 billion on behalf of our clients. We have won more than $350 million in the past 5 years alone. While we are proud of this number, what we truly care about is what it represents: the people that we have helped. The money that we win on behalf of our clients means that they can get the medical care that they need, that they don’t have to worry about paying for bills while they recover, and that their family will be taken care of. Those are the results that our team care about, and it is the results that we will continue to fight for.
