Philosophy: The client always comes first. My firm
gives the best legal representation possible to its clients. Client
input / opinions regarding decisions made are valued by my firm.
Good communication and working relationship between the client and my firm
Approach to service: My firm makes sure that the client
is receiving or has received the best medical care possible for their head
injury. If that is not the case, I try to facilitate a transfer to
better medical care to minimize the client's damages / injuries.
I make sure that clients are informed and understand the various legal
procedures and decisions that occur. I am aware that many head injury
victims have varying degrees of cognitive problems. Those problems
are considered when counseling the client. My ideal is to work as
an attorney-client team to obtain the best possible recovery for the client.
