Auto Accident, Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice
Choosing the Right Attorney
Choosing the right lawyer is one of the most difficult, and important, decisions you will ever make. No one anticipates being injured. The decisions you and your family make choosing an attorney in the days, weeks and months after an incident are critical. It is important you have an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side who will work tirelessly to help make things right.
Each case is handled personally and you can rest assured you will not be handed off to another attorney. Along with my team, we work with every client one-on-one and case-by-case.
I hold Central Florida drivers responsible for their mistakes, so that they will pay more attention on the roads. By helping one person bring a claim, I hope to prevent claims in the future. I work to hold bad drivers accountable for running a red light, driving drunk, speeding, texting and driving, or causing a rear-end crash.
Dog owners should maintain control of their pets and keep them leashed. Businesses should have clean floors to prevent slip and falls. Curbs should be well-marked to prevent trip and falls. Pools should be guarded to prevent drowning. And at night, lights indoors and out should work, so that pedestrians can safely see their path.
As a medical malpractice attorney, one of my goals is to prevent medical mistakes from happening again. I hope that by filing a suit, or making a claim, a doctor who has made an error will learn from that mistake, and won’t make it again. I hope that a hospital will revise its policies and procedures, to prevent other injuries. I hold doctors, nurses, and hospitals accountable for their mistakes, and expect them to improve their practices.
Many of my clients have confided in me that it is tremendously frustrating to see their lives completely change, when the driver who caused the accident has walked. My job is to even the scales, and to hold the person who made the mistake responsible.
Personal injury lawyers, auto accident lawyers, and medical malpractice lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. I explain to my clients that if I don’t win, then I don’t get paid. Another way to explain a contingency fee is “no recovery, no fee, no cost.” I am not paid by the hour, the meeting, the phone call or the letter. I don’t send bills to my clients. I work for results, and for the satisfaction of my clients.
In the best possible world, everyone would take appropriate actions, and would do their job fairly and correctly. No person or family would be hurt by the mistakes of others. Until that time, however, people will hire lawyers to help them through the complicated process of putting their lives back together. I am honored to represent each and every one of my clients.
I work to keep my clients up to date and informed on the progress of their claim or case. My clients receive copies of all letters leaving my office, and letters advising of the status of their claim. I return client’s phone calls promptly, and answer questions until my clients are satisfied that they understand this confusing process.
Many cases settle out of court, or settle after a lawsuit is filed but before trial. Since no attorney ever knows in advance whether a case will settle out of court, or go to trial, my goal is to prepare each case as if it were going to trial. I would rather know more about a case, and have information that may be unnecessary, than to be missing a crucial piece of information.
