auto accidents

Auto Accidents
We can help you to file and pursue your claim with your own insurance company and to litigate against the other party’s insurer. It is the job of insurance company lawyers to find weaknesses in claims even when the claims seem indisputable. You need an auto accident attorney who is familiar with those lawyers’ tactics and is prepared to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.

 
contract disputes

Contract Disputes
In the event of a contract disagreement, good business sense dictates efforts toward a mutually agreeable compromise. Of course, agreement is not always possible, even between two reasonable parties. Then, you need the counsel of an experienced contract dispute attorney.

 
fraud claims

Fraud Claims
Unfortunately, fraud is all too common in the modern world. We are inundated with enticing advertisements and direct appeals to part with our hard-earned money in exchange for some product or service. The sellers make claims of the value and utility of their products to convince people to buy them. Of course, the vast majority of these claims are truthful. But when they are not, fraud victims are often cheated out of large amounts of their money or other property.

 
insurance claims

Insurance Claims
It is frustrating for policyholders to have an insurance claim denied. After suffering a personal or business loss, the last thing you should have to worry about is having a claim denied, especially when you have done the responsible thing by maintaining an insurance policy and diligently paying premiums. Unfortunately, the simple fact is that your financial interests and the financial interests of the insurance company are at odds.

oil rig injuries

Oil Rig Injuries

Millions of large trucks and tractor-trailers travel U.S. roads and highways every day.
