How We’re Different

We possess medicolegal expertise

Our attorneys excel at assessing injury claims. This understanding allows us to best defend a claim and limit damages even when liability exists.

We foster a culture of extreme preparedness

We prepare every case as if we’re going to take a verdict, even if a settlement is a strong possibility. We put you in the most favorable position, whether the case is settled or tried.

We engage the details

We immerse ourselves in the details of every case, in search of plaintiffs’ inconsistencies, divergent diagnoses and exaggerations � as a means of destroying the credibility of dubious evidence..

We challenge their experts

Our attorneys have a reputation for vigorously cross-examining plaintiffs’ expert witnesses. Our aggressive approach allows us to break down their arguments and undermine their credibility.
