Biography

For the past 20 years all I have done is represent people who have been harmed in a personal injury accident, whether that accident was a car accident or some other sort of incident such as a dangerous condition of a product or someone's property. Harm includes medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.

Legal Answers
Q. Can I switch lawyers? (early in the case, claim has not been filed yet)
A: Maybe you should switch lawyers. Or maybe you shouldn't. Sometimes the client's lack of understanding of the process creates frustration. It is a slow, time consuming ordeal. But, other times the firm is just not responsive and not doing their job. Then it requires a change. Talk with a few attorneys to get the best understanding, then make a decision on who you trust and who you think would be the most accessible. And of course, who you think would do the best job.
Q. Had a massive leg injury torn ligament plus back injury and looking for workman atty. How can I filter out factory type?
A: Curious as to how you injured your back on the job. Sometimes the incident can be a crossover case, which means it is both a civil case and a work comp case. You should investigate the possibility depending on the event.
Q. how do we get a police report in Atherton ca. my brother was killed by a car. the PD dept. will not give us a report
A: First of all, my condolences on the loss of your brother. It is unclear if the department will not actually give you the report due to insufficient authorization or if the report is not ready as of yet. Incidences involving catastrophic injuries and/or death can take months until the report is ready. Once prepared, you will need to present proper authorization to obtain the report. Your nephew would have standing so a guardian appointed to him for purposes of this litigation would allow that person to obtain the report. You may wish to consult with an attorney to pursue this matter. Personal Injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which roughly translates to; there is no money up front, a fee is taken upon a recovery. ... Read More
