We know that open communication with an attorney is critically important. Our office hours are generally from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If our regular office hours are inconvenient, we are always willing to talk at other times by appointment. Meetings can be held at any of our firm’s offices or at another location more convenient for you. We are flexible.
After hours, a message can be left in our general telephone mailbox or one can ask for the direct dial extension of a specific attorney.Will my Personal Injury Case be Kept Confidential – I Don’t Want Anyone to Know?
We take the confidence our clients have placed in us very seriously and unless granted express permission, will never discuss your matters with any other person or organization outside the firm or our co-counsel.How do I pay for my Attorney and What Happens if I Lose?
Many of our clients have significantly fewer financial resources than the well-heeled corporations they oppose who can invest almost limitless time and money in the legal process. For this reason, we work predominantly on a contingent fee basis, meaning we get paid only if we bring a case to a successful conclusion for you. This is true whether such a conclusion is through settlement, judgment, or otherwise. The percentage to which our firm is entitled as an attorney’s fee is specified in our retainer agreement.

We appreciate the opportunity to represent you and your loved ones, and the trust that you have placed in us by choosing our law firm.
