We obtained a $15 million verdict for a survivor of child sexual abuse and a $1 million verdict for a woman who fell down a poorly lit flight of stairs at a nightclub. We have obtained significant compensation for young children permanently harmed by their landlords’ negligence, individuals injured by improperly designed products, the victims of medical malpractice and other kinds of professional malpractice, and a host of other clients. No matter the context, our experienced attorneys ensure that our clients get the best possible outcome.

Our firm also has successfully represented families of people who have died because of the acts of others. We understand that the survivors suffer more than just the loss of income from those deaths. We have the experience, skill, and tenacity needed to maximize monetary recoveries—as illustrated by the multi-million dollar verdicts we have achieved for families who have lost a loved one, including a $3.9 million verdict for the family of a worker who was electrocuted.
