Significant Cases

I have represented hundreds of people accused of serious crimes which carry jail sentences. I have represented many people who were severely injured. An attorney must never forget that each and every case is significant. This is because, to the client, their situation is likely to be the most stressful and crucial event in their lives at that moment. No matter what type of case I have, whether criminal, child custody or even a small money claim, I never underestimate the importance of the result to the client.
