Biography

I have been representing individuals, families, and small businesses since I graduated from law school in 1975. I believe that most people get confused by the legal system especially with insurance questions-- the system turns them around, nobody explains anything, and that turns them off. I want them to know their rights--that's why we're called The Know Your Rights People. Access to justice is why I offer free consultations, and take death and injury cases on a contingent fee--which means I don't get paid until I get money for the person I represent. Unlike many attorneys, I don't represent insurance companies to avoid a conflict of interest. Also, unlike many attorneys, I charge only for costs outside of my office---many attorneys charge for postage, even phone fees--and then charge interest on that! I went to the University of Michigan, then to Georgetown University's Law School, and have a further degree, a Masters of Law, from Temple University. I have been in practice for over thirty five years, and have represented people from adjusters to veterinarians, whose family members have been killed or who have --through no fault of their own-- had to deal with fractures and all manner of other injuries, from many varieties of corporate and individual carelessness. Some lawyers say they only take "serious" cases--I believe that any injury that causes you limitations, pain, is serious to you. Give me a call if you have a legal question about any form of injury--if I can't help you, I'll at least try to tell you who can! And it won't cost you a dime --even the call is free--1-888-PA-LAWS-1 (1-888-725-2971)!

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    The insurance company is staffed by professionals whose job is to pay out as little as possible. Before you speak to them, you should have the opportunity to speak to someone who is on your side. I don't represent insurance companies. Every week I give free consultations to people who want to know their legal options - that's why my practice is called "The Know Your Rights People."© If you or a loved one has been hurt, then that injury is serious--and that's how I treat all callers. In fact, I'm proud that when insurance adjusters have been hurt or their family has been injured they call me to represent them! Whatever your injury or death question, call us. You can even use our toll free number: 1-800-367-5298. Put it in your phone so if a friend-or you -gets hit you can call for advice before you speak with the insurance adjuster!
  • Contingent Fees
    I take injury cases on a "contingent fee" which means I don't get paid until I get the other side to put money on the table. Most of my clients are average working people, without the money to pay the huge hourly fees insurance companies pay their lawyers. I want you to be able to have a lawyer if you've been hurt, so I set out to not charge up front fees for injured people or families who've had a loved one killed. I only get paid when I get money for you. It's that simple. Don't you wish other professions were like that? It doesn't cost a dime to talk to me, and it doesn't cost money to retain me as your lawyer. Unlike many other law firms I don't charge interest on casefile costs I advance, and I only get my costs back if and when I get money for you! You don't have to pay expenses up front as happens with many lawfirms.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information

Legal Answers
Q. Is it legal for my girlfriend to get my vehicle towed from the place where we both live because she was mad at me?
A: If you legally lived there, and she caused it to be removed she is liable for the costs of recovering it. Whether police will accept a complaint is a different thing. If you have registration showing it was yours for some time, she knew that, then they might.
Q. Good day, I have a case management hearing and no representation, how likely is it I will be treated fairly for justice?
A: Proving malfunction cases is extremely difficult, and be prepared to spend $60,000 or more to obtain experts, have tests done. It is not enough just to say it happened this way. You need experts to say it happened that way due to a defect in design, manufacture, or the failure of a part, and show that the failure was due to faulty design or manufacture. Just saying "I was driving along and all of the sudden....." isn't proof of defect. It's proof something happened but the other side doesn't have to do anything--you, the plaintiff must show the defect.
Q. Good day, I have a case management hearing and no representation, how likely is it I will be treated fairly for justice?
A: You will be treated fairly but no case is self proving. Do you have expert reports? You are required to. As the plaintiff it is your burden of proof. Do you have a) medical reports and b) a report of a medical expert? If you are claiming a product case, do you have deposition evidence? Do you have an expert? If the answer to these questions is no, the court will expect you to have them by dates certain. If not, your case may well be terminated.
