Success Stories

Below are examples of some cases our firm has handled, that resulted in jury verdicts, binding arbitration awards or other successful conclusions following alternative dispute resolution. Because no two cases are identical, past success does not mean that the same result can be achieved in a similar case in the future. If you have a case that you would like to discuss with us, you may call or email us to arrange for a free consultation regarding your case. We only represent plaintiffs and we do so strictly on a contingency fee basis.
