As always, our firm is dedicated to obtaining justice for those who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions, bike accidents, dog bites, unsafe property, dangerous products, and medical malpractice. As a family business, we strive to give back to our clients and our community. Each year we award a $2,000 college scholarship that is only available to clients, former clients, and their immediate family members. We also donate $200 to charity for every client referred to our firm by a former client. We also have a matching program where we donate up to a $1,000 to charity when our clients choose to donate some of the money from their case to charity. In 2019, we donated $9,200 through these programs.
