Our fees for injury cases are on a contingent basis, meaning we don't get paid until you do. We advance all the costs of litigation, subject to reimbursement upon successful completion of the case. Your initial visit is always free.

If you have been injured and are being treated unfairly by big insurance companies, corporations or government agencies, you need an advocate who is on your side. We will fight for you. You can contact us now at (661) 327-0601.
