*Every case is different and may have a different result.
When someone comes in with a serious work injury, they’re worried about their future, getting treatment, and paying their bills. I’m glad I can help ease their burden by helping them understand what to expect and how we might be able to help them get through this difficult period. Injured workers need protection; it’s why I became a lawyer.
