Our experienced attorneys are committed to providing cutting-edge, aggressive and innovative representation with the personalized attention and focus that our clients deserve. If you have been injured by a product or medication, or have purchased a product that is defective, does not live up to your expectations, or that was falsely advertised by the manufacturer, our attorneys are prepared to provide energetic and diligent representation and legal assistance.
Whether you, a family member or an acquaintance has been sexually harassed, discriminated against, wrongfully terminated, denied overtime or have been the victim of retaliation or other problems at work, we can help. In cases of tragedy, involving serious injury or death, we provide committed legal advocacy. If you suspect your employer, a competitor, or another business is cheating the government or not paying their taxes, we can help you recover any award to which you may be entitled.
Protecting our clients’ rights is extremely important to us. So important that we have taken one of our cases all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States (and won in a unanimous opinion)!
