All cases hinge on their unique facts, and the facts of no two cases are identical. Just like the individuals they affect, catastrophic events are unique and they impact different people in different ways. Even people who seem to have suffered similar losses under similar circumstances may have very different legal outcomes. Accordingly, nothing in the materials on these pages should be construed as a guarantee or assurance of the outcome of your case or any other case. No law firm can promise you a particular outcome, and that includes ours. We can and do however strive to obtain the best possible outcome for each of our clients and we stand ready to do that for you.
Website Materials Do Not Constitute Legal Advice
By its nature, legal advice cannot be properly given in “one size fits all” fashion. Although we hope you find the information contained in these pages helpful, it is not in any way intended to be taken as legal advice. The information and views expressed are general in nature and those of various people. The materials presented on these pages are presented for informational purposes only; if you believe you’ve been wronged, you should have an attorney review your case. Your review of these materials does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and our firm or any of our attorneys.
In the large majority of cases, we work on a contingent fee basis. That means you do not have to pay anything to engage us to handle your case and you will owe no attorneys’ fees, court costs or litigation expenses unless you recover. If you do recover, we will receive a portion of the recovery as our fee and the court costs and litigation expenses we have paid in handling your case will be reimbursed to us from your share of the recovery. Please contact us if you have questions or need additional information regarding our fees.
