Let me say this because I think there are major misconceptions about personal injury attorneys, especially the ones on those billboards. Not all of us injury attorneys are money-grubbing "ambulance chasers." A lot (certainly not all) of us deeply care about our clients and the pursuit of justice. I always put my client’s interest first and rarely think about my own benefit.
A lot of lawyers hide behind a facade. A bull, a lion, the hammer, etc. For me, I’m just me. I am passionate about doing the right thing, advocating for the little guy, and keeping people honest.
One of my professional goals is to try to get people to change the way they think about injury lawyers. I know that sounds like a rather large feat but one I’m willing to take on even if it's one person at a time.
In all situations, I represent legitimately injured humans going against multi-billion dollar insurance companies and institutions. The chips are stacked against an injured person in every way. The other side has the power, the resources, and the improper sentiment that someone that brings an injury case is automatically lying or exaggerating. What my clients have is the one thing that should rise above all...the Truth.
And hopefully from that truth comes justice.
