Fighting Hard to Get the Personal Injury Settlement You Deserve

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.”

     –Henry Ford

We can. We want you to believe you can. Regardless of how dark the clouds appear and what obstacles you face, it’s imperative to keep the faith. That doesn’t mean it will be easy, that doesn’t mean it will be quick, and that doesn’t mean the road won’t be bumpy. It’s about doing what’s right, doing what needs to be done, and doing whatever it takes to advance the ball and your position appropriately, within the law, and ethically.

Our objective is to ensure you are treated fairly, reasonably, and respectfully.

Whether you are our most important case is your case.

Unfortunately, many people, when confronted by some of the intimidating tactics of attorneys, insurance companies, adjusters, debtors, and those who file frivolous lawsuits, etc., will oftentimes “give up” and “give in” to the pressure. Countless times I have been told by clients, “Well, the insurance adjuster/defense attorney, said ‘That is all I will ever get,’” or “That’s the way it is going to be.” On the defense side, some folks/plaintiff attorneys say, “If you don’t do what I say or if you don’t pay me what my client demands, then we’re suing you.” A review of the results of the cases I have handled clearly demonstrates this need not be the case for you. If the offers/terms are fair and reasonable, then we’ll resolve it. If not, then we’ll escalate to the next level by way of the courthouse. Similarly, on the defense side, if the demands/terms are unreasonable, we’ll let ‘em know they need to tee it up. Their choice. Their call.

And sometimes our clients drop the ball, make a mistake, or make an error in judgment that prompt legal representation. They are still entitled to a proper defense:

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.”

     –Vince Lombardi

In addition, on the plaintiff’s side, sometimes are clients are faced with what “seems” like insurmountable odds—even very difficult cases that no other attorney is willing to take on. Any attorney can handle the “easy” case. But what about the “tough” cases? My view:

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

     –Albert Einstein

Sometimes this requires us to roll up our sleeves, get dirty, & dig deeper. And our experience in case after case is that the deeper we dig, the more we find.

While we insist our clients remain open, flexible, fair, & reasonable, we expect the same from the adverse parties—whether plaintiff of defendant.

To this end, our team works to level the playing field for you and all our clients, whether plaintiff or defendant. By combining education, training, perseverance, and experience as a trial attorney, coupled with quick access to investigators, innovative video technology, our resources, and strategic planning, success can be achieved. To be successful in these areas of practice, one must carefully evaluate and investigate, fully develop the facts of the case, look at all perspectives, have an outstanding working knowledge of the law, be respected by judges (and by adversaries as well), and be a seasoned and creative negotiator and litigator to know where, when, and how the best results can be achieved.

I have over a quarter century of experience in litigation. I focus on wrongful death, personal injury, business, insurance, collections, and related areas. I work with insurance carriers and large companies coast to coast to obtain a fair resolution for our clients. I continue to work diligently to achieve a fair and equitable resolution, while amicably, expeditiously, and cost-efficiently minimizing my clients’ time away from work, family, and personal matters.

 “Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.”

     –John Wooden

Many times my work on behalf of clients requires me to work nights, weekends, and holidays—whatever it takes to protect our clients.

With this in mind, the courthouse is not the first approach. However, sometimes it’s the necessary approach. To this end, I am a strong advocate of alternative dispute resolution including mediation. Moreover, whether on the plaintiff or defense side of the docket, we advocate pre-suit mediation in appropriate cases.

While I handle large cases, I am just as willing and pleased to work on small- to medium-size cases. I do not view your situation as a “p-r-o-b-l-e-m”; rather, it is a challenge. And challenges are opportunities to be creative, resourceful, and innovative to make a difference for you–to help you receive what you are entitled to–what you deserve. To defend you such that you/your company are not taken advantage of. So no matter what you have been told by other lawyers, people, insurance adjusters, and companies, please share with me your story and let’s determine if you are being treated fairly. If not, let’s explore options. Let’s determine if this is an opportunity to help.

If you need a lawyer, “call Joe.” If I can help you, be assured I will. If  my team and I can’t help you, I will personally run the interference to put you in touch with someone who can.

“The philosophy of our team is grounded in our commitment to faith, character, values, morals. And a paramount imperative: treat people with respect.”
