It sound’s self serving at times. People get into an accident and I suggest they call an attorney. OK, maybe no one is claiming to be hurt right then or maybe it’s just a minor fender bender.  A simple fact is that you do NOT need an attorney for every single calamity that happens in your life.  In fact, we turn away a surprising number of the people who call or e-mail our offices.  There are simply times it doesn’t make sense for them to hire an attorney.

            However, there are often times when it does make a lot of sense to have representation. For example, we recently I received a call from a local business owner whose husband was involved in an accident.  It appeared that no one was hurt initially.  In the two weeks since the collision her insurance company had denied coverage for reason’s only clear to them and now she has a car that is probably a total loss.  She may not have coverage for this car crash.

            There are things we can do since we are representing her and her husband. The reality is that had she come to us two weeks ago, it would have been dramatically easier to help her.  Remember, as personal injury attorney’s we never charge for the initial consultation.  We have never charged anyone to talk about their accident and whether they need an attorney.

            Pick up the phone soon after the accident and call. It will take 5 or 10 minutes of your time and you will learn what to expect and whether you need an attorney. Trust us we won’t take on your case if you don’t need help.  We will just give you some free advice and help you figure out what works best for you.  We go out of our way to evaluate the facts of your case and then determine if you are a good fit for our practice.

            If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident please call our office at 888-809-1075 and you will be directed to an experienced attorney that will answer your questions and give you great direction.  If you prefer you can go to and fill out our contact page and one of us will call you.  Either way, please remember that the insurance companies have attorneys working for them and you may benefit from having someone represent your interests as well.
