When our attorneys speak with prospective clients, we're speaking with people who are dealing with the toughest circumstances of their lives. People who are severely injured by terrible circumstances, businesses facing costly litigation, people defrauded by unethical business practices, or a professional fighting for his or her reputation-all these people need a lawyer. We can help.

Our firm has a team of lawyers who have spent their whole careers training for your case. We have one goal: win. Our initial job is to find out what "winning" means for your situation. Is it a sizable settlement? Is it minimizing the cost of an employee dispute? Is it efficiently extricating your company from expensive multi-party litigation? That's why we urge you to contact us for a free case consultation. A short appointment allows us to understand your case, understand your goals, and develop a plan of attack to achieve them.

Diffuse Tensor Imaging & Advanced Imaging Techniques

One of the biggest hurdles brain injury victims have in personal injury and products liability cases is quantifying the degree of injury to the jury. If a jury can’t feel or discern the extent of a person’s injuries, they are less inclined to award damages. We have effectively utilized cutting-edge advanced imaging techniques such and diffuse tensor imaging or DTI in cases involving brain injuries. With this technology, a jury can confirm that an individual has no injury and should not be awarded damages for a significant brain injury or, alternatively, such as in the case of the example provided, that the individual has suffered injuries throughout the brain. When paired with a history of trauma and an absence of some other explanation, this evidence has become the gold standard for confirming brain injuries. You can click on the player to see a 3-D rendering of the brain made by DTI.

Trial Animations

Trial animations can be incredibly impactful if used properly. Sometimes a concept or complex scenario is described, but only a picture can shed light on what really happened. Having the ability to show and explain a client’s position using trial animations is a compelling way to get the point across. Understanding the proper way to create and utilize these tools is just as important as putting together the evidence that supports them. Often times, a creative animation can be the difference in having a successful outcome at trial.

Trial Illustrations

Presenting information that a jury can see and understand is so critical to a good outcome at trial. Whether it's understanding the gravity of a particular injury or ascertaining how an accident sequence occurred, proper illustrations that call the jury, judge or arbitrator's attention to what's important in a way that is impactful is a critical component to our trial teams. Here are some examples of our trial illustrations.
