I’m a specialist in personal injury. I don’t – we don’t do any other type of law but personal injury for purposes of helping people and focusing on that area. There are many different kinds of law, and to be good in that kind of law, you need to have had not only the experience but time under the radar, time under the gun, so from that perspective, our extensive experience defines us as the firm that we are. But on top of that, I like to say to clients, I’d like them to soar above their injuries not just kind of survive through it, and a way to do that is really to take a more hands on approach not to just get them more money, because money really doesn’t pay for your lifestyle or the loss that you have suffered. What we’re really trying to do is we are trying to give them a whole recovery, emotionally, physically, get them to the best they can be and then of course financially, so that’s what I enjoy about the work and that’s what really I think sets us apart from most of our competition.

When I started with the firm, we were – the firm had already been in existence since 1976—so we have over 30 years of, 35 years now, of existence of the firm. So we have gained a great deal of experience. Almost all of the work we do is personal injury. So we developed a toolkit of things that we can use to help the clients when they are injured, and all personal injury clients have something in common: they’re hurt. When they are hurt one of the interesting things to help them through is where do I go, who do I see, how do I get compensated. All of those questions come up. And of course because of our experience we are able to direct them through the process successfully.
