People who are injured by another often find themselves under significant financial pressure because medical care providers understandably want to be paid for their services immediately, regardless of whether money has been received from the person or entity which caused the injury. Even when injured people are fortunate enough to have health insurance it can be difficult to meet the necessary co-pays and deductibles required to get necessary medical treatment. Some medical providers will offer to wait to be paid from the money you receive from your settlement or judgment or to send your bill to the other party or their insurance directly, instead of submitting their bills to your health insurance company. Although these arrangements may appear to save you the cost of a co-pay, they are typically profitable for both the medical care provider and for your health insurance carrier but not for you. I can assist you with these and similar problems while handling your injury case.
I have handled many automobile collision cases, including motorcycle and semi truck/trailer accidents, as well as construction accidents, animal bite cases and tort claims against government entities and wrongful death cases. Injury cases must be handled expeditiously and efficiently, and I work hard to do this. I also work on a contingency fee basis which means that you pay no attorney fees unless I recover money for you.
I also have significant experience in the area of criminal defense. I have handled cases ranging from first degree murder to drunk driving, and have handled numerous federal cases including allegations of large-scale drug trafficking.The penalties for almost all charges, even relatively speaking “minor” offenses, are becoming more and more severe with mandatory minimum sentence requirements. For example, if you are convicted of possessing a small amount of marijuana, the Department of Transportation will suspend your driver’s license even if you were not driving, or even anywhere around a car, when you possessed the marijuana. If you are charged with a crime, it is more important than ever to be represented by a knowledgeable and competent criminal defense attorney.
