Verdicts and Settlements

We understand and always recommend that an injury victim perform their due diligence and carefully consider which law firm they feel will offer the best possible representation for their personal injury claim.

In order to help you learn more about our practice and the results we’ve achieved in previous cases over the past thirty years, we have compiled a partial list of judgments, verdicts and settlements obtained for clients in which our attorneys were the sole counsel, lead counsel or co-counsel. The facts and circumstances of your case may differ from the facts and circumstances of the cases discussed here. Each case is different and must be evaluated and handled on its own merit. Results cannot be guaranteed or promised.
