Personal Injury Lawyers who Fight for Your Rights

Our attorneys assist injured clients in recovering the damages they deserve – medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. From negotiation with insurance companies through trial, we are dedicated to fighting for our clients’ rights to adequate compensation. Gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and working with investigators and experts, we build a case piece by piece, exposing negligence and identifying each element of damages.

Ensuring Organizations Are Title IX and Title VII Compliant

The rules and regulations set forth in Title IX and VII are complex. We help schools, colleges, and non-profits remain compliant by assisting with investigations into allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and bullying and stalking brought by student against student, student against faculty, and staff against staff. Our fair and prompt investigations include interviews of involved parties and witnesses, as well as a comprehensive report for the fact finder.
