We desire to be different. Our firm believes that everyone deserves justice and the finest legal representation at a fair price and to be treated with respect and personal attention- to personally know their lawyer. We live in a world where injury claims are treated like “fast food,” lawyers spend millions advertising to collect as many cases as they can. You are not a “case.” You are a person. With a problem. And need help.
John’s grandfather and great grandfather practiced law in a world that was less about “self” and the dollar and more about advocating for those who needed someone trustworthy to fight for them.
