Our legal team will be there when you need compassion and help as you recover from serious injuries.

Your Wrongful Death Case Needs a Good Advocate

Losing someone to a fatal accident is painful, and those left behind can feel lost and overwhelmed.

We focus on working with people in your situation so you can spend your time and energy on what you need to take care of. Your healing can be done more efficiently with lower stress levels.

We Take Injury Cases on a Contingency Basis

Suffering severe injuries in an accident means you need legal representation you can rely on by choosing us as your Lake California personal injury attorney. We take cases on contingency and only get paid when your case has a successful resolution. If there is no successful resolution, you won't owe me anything.

Choose an Attorney That Will Meet Your Needs

Attorneys advertise services all the time. Online ads, billboards, TV commercials, and more make it seem like attorneys in your local area are waiting patiently to help you. Many of the promises these attorneys make are not kept as they should be, and because of that, their clients don't receive the help or the compensation they deserve. It can be easy for an attorney to say they have a high success rate, but the attorney still may not do everything necessary to fight for the right level of compensation.

High success rates can also come from settling many cases for less than their clients could have or should have seen. We never count my cases as successful unless my clients receive compensation for full emotional, financial, and physical recovery.

Whether we're the right Lake California personal injury lawyer for you is something only you can decide. But no matter who you choose, we want you to make sure you know what to look for. That way, you have the highest chance of getting the attorney that will be the best option for your situation. Here are some things you'll want to consider when choosing an attorney.

  • Know the Experience the Attorney Offers - Personal injury law is complicated, and you must hire an attorney with experience in it. Additionally, the attorney should be familiar with very similar cases to yours. Without that and expertise arguing in court, an attorney may not be suitable for your case.
  • Understand the Value of Seeing Past Verdicts and Settlements - Many attorneys make their past verdicts and settlements available on their websites. That can be very helpful when seeing how successful an attorney has handled cases like yours. If you don't know that information, ask about it. You'll want to know about an attorney's past success before you hire them.
  • Read Attorney Reviews to See What Others Think - Reading reviews about attorneys is an excellent way of deciding which attorney might be right for you. They may be a perfect choice to represent you, but you want to ensure that other people who have used them in the past feel they received quality help and guidance. Not every review will have 100 percent accuracy, but spotting people who leave legitimate reviews is generally pretty easy.
  • Determine Whether an Attorney is Established - Any lawyer you hire should be established well in the legal community. They should also have the financial means to tackle more significant cases. When an attorney can't pursue claims due to a lack of funds, your case may not get the help and attention it deserves. That is especially true if your case goes to trial, as your attorney will need the proper resources to guide you and fight for you.
