Company Description
TRIAL LAWYERS FOR JUSTICE

We are a law firm dedicated to helping families and victims of Brain Injury, Birth Injury, Medical Malpractice, Spinal Cord Injury, Wrongful Death, Serious Injury Accidents, Insurance Bad Faith, and Nursing Home Negligence. The outcome of a personal injury case will affect the rest of a person’s life. It will affect their whole family. If enough justice (money) isn’t obtained, the money runs out and the injured person and their family may suffer. Our job is to work to get our clients and their families enough justice to give them compensation for the rest of their lives.

We only get one shot at getting this very important job done. We only get one trial. Because of this, we only handle a limited number of cases at a time. This allows us to give our clients the attention and respect they deserve.

Handling another human being’s case and lifetime medical needs should never be about making quick money and moving on. There is so much more to it. We deal with peoples' lives and that is a huge responsibility. At the end of all of our own lives we want to be able to look back proudly and know that what we did in this world truly mattered. We get closely involved with our clients and their families.

We are proud to be lawyers committed to using the cornerstone of civil justice in this country — the jury system — to obtain full and fair compensation for individuals whose rights are at risk. We are on the side of real human beings whose rights are at risk. It is part of our mission to foster an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their socio-economic level of wealth, race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation. We never represent government entities, insurance companies, HMOs or corporations.

On civil cases (those cases where our client needs to file a claim or lawsuit against another person, company or government agency), we normally work on a contingent fee basis (meaning that we are paid for our services only from any monetary recovery obtained for our client). Thus, “affordability” should not be a concern for anyone who has been wronged and needs our help.

Our team is growing, and we are looking to add passionate legal professionals to it. If you fit the job description and agree with our mission, we would love to hear from you.
