Choosing a lawyer is an important decision, and it is crucial to hire a lawyer who can get you the result you deserve. Here is what sets us apart:
I have specialized in injury cases for over 30 years.
Most people don’t know what insurance companies are really like until they try to get treated fairly after an accident or injury. Despite their friendly television ads, insurance companies are only concerned with increasing their shareholders’ profits and have large firms on their side who specialize in defending injury and accident claims. They will do everything in their power to avoid paying you what you deserve – that’s their job. Dealing with the lawyers for these huge corporations can be daunting, which is why it’s critical to have the right lawyer. Be wary of general practice lawyers or firms that specialize in multiple types of law; they may not have the necessary expertise to handle the large firms that represent insurance companies. I spent the first 15 years of my career defending insurance companies – I know their tricks and how they think.
We know what your case is worth
Many people—including attorneys—do not have a realistic idea of what an injury is worth. For example, how much a broken leg is worth? It depends on a lot factors, including:
- What kind of fracture?
- How much treatment was needed and how much are the medical bills?
- Did the injury heal completely, and how long did that take?
- Will there be any long term consequences?
- How did the accident affect other aspects of the victim's life, like working, driving, or caring for children?
- Was the accident caused by a drunk driver?
- How experienced is the attorney on the other side?
- How much insurance/assets does the at-fault party have?
- Where will the case be tried?
Only with years of experience trying and settling cases can an attorney learn how to evaluate how much each case is worth. We have tried and settled thousands of injury cases. Read about some of our results here.
We understand our clients
Your attorney needs to understand how your life has changed after an injury or a loved one’s death, which can be highly personal and difficult to share. Our firm takes the time to get to know each client we work with, and we strive to make them feel comfortable sharing information and asking questions during the process. We tailor our representation to each client’s needs. If you want us to hold your hand throughout the entire case, we can do that. If you would prefer to let us handle everything so that you can focus on healing, we are also happy to take that approach.
The best way for you to know if our firm will be a good fit for your needs is to sit down and talk with us. Whether you were hurt in a car accident or lost a loved one to a wrongful death, we will listen to your story and give you an honest assessment of your legal case. Call us at 530-887-8295 or contact us online for a free consultation at either our Auburn or Roseville office. We also make hospital visits.
Lastly, you do not pay unless we win your case.
Many people that come in are worried that they can’t afford to hire an attorney to help them. I charge clients a percentage (typically 1/3) of their recovery and advance all costs. If, for any reason, there’s no recovery then the client owes nothing.
