The first thing a client usually asks is “Do I have a case?,” the second is “Will I win?”

The first is easy to answer. As the client explains the facts of their situation, I can apply the current law to those facts and discuss the various options. The second is not easy as it is not ethical or possible to guarantee the outcome of a case, and I never do.

However, I can apply my experience and knowledge to determine if the case is sufficient to take to court. Then depending upon how the facts and law play out, a client may “win or lose” their case. While many fact situations are similar, no case is identical. I do not keep a running tally of how many cases I have “lost or won.” However, my clients and I have won more cases than we have lost -- and winning does not always look or feel the same to each client.

Instead of telling you stories about different clients, I am providing a list of some of the types of representation that my firm has provided for clients. This list is not all inclusive, yet will give you an idea of what can be done. If you do not see your particular situation or need listed, please call anyway, as we can probably assist you with your case. If not, I will try to refer you to an attorney who may be able to represent you.
