If you suddenly need a lawyer, you might start searching online. When you do, you're likely to see lawyers and law firms with fancy-looking seals and badges on their websites claiming they're among the best in their field. Before you move forward, know that some of these seals or badges might be "vanity" or "ego" awards that lawyers buy. For more info from the Federal Trade Commission, click below.

Injury cases are handled on a "contingency fee" basis. We only get paid when we win your case. This includes case expenses. You will never receive a bill from us for "case expenses." We only recover our expenses when we win your case. Criminal cases are typically a "flat fee." We will often work with you on making payments on criminal cases. In all cases, our "fee agreement" with you will be in writing, subject to your approval and will govern our agreement with you.
