Medical Malpractice

The focus of the Firm, experienced in everything from birth injuries, surgical mishaps, misdiagnoses, emergency room errors, bad drugs, and death resulting from negligence.

Medical costs add up quickly and future needs are often unaffordable.

If you or or a loved one is a victim of medical negligence, our highly experienced team can review your medical records and evaluate your case for free.

Wrongful Death

Life is precious and invaluable. Even one life cut short as a result of someone’s negligence is too many.

Although nothing can be done to bring someone back, with the right combination of compassion and experience, our Firm can evaluate even the most complicated wrongful death case to maximize the family’s recovery and help bring some closure.

Tourist/Recreational Accidents and Deaths

No one signs up for a tour expecting to experience a negative life-changing event. Yet, almost daily, people are injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness.

The Firm has significant experience in swimming, snorkeling, boating, hiking, and scuba diving accidents and deaths. Just because you signed a waiver does not mean you do not have a case.

Catastrophic Injuries and Deaths

The Firm has extensive experience in brain and spinal cord injuries as well as catastrophic injuries and deaths resulting from negligence.

Cases include airplane and helicopter crashes, major motor vehicle and heavy equipment accidents, longshoremen and stevedore injuries and deaths, injuries/deaths on cruise ships, and injuries/deaths resulting from defective drugs or products.

Construction Disputes

Along with a high level of experience with serious job site injuries (including death) caused by third parties, the Firm has extensive experience in construction and design defect cases.

Business Litigation

Business disputes are as common as traffic jams and often are just as frustrating. With the right lawyers, not all disputes have to end in high-priced, drawn-out litigation.

While always prepared to go the distance, the Firm has a history of reaching creative and amicable resolutions to business disputes without breaking the bank. Clients can focus on running their business and leave the lawyering to the lawyers.
