“Learn to do good. Make justice your aim: Redress the wronged, hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow …” –Isaiah 1:17 When people reach out to our firm, a corporation or another person has crushed their opportunity to succeed. We serve to fill this gap that has been caused by a wrongdoer. In essence, our job is to give a voice to people who would otherwise fight their battles in silence. The clients we serve are vulnerable. We tell juries when we try these cases that when someone — especially a breadwinner — suffers a serious injury, not only does that represent a serious blow to their personal life and well-being, but it is also a serious blow to their family economy. Every family unit has its own economy. If a serious injury prevents the family provider from participating in the economy, the effects can be devastating. But we consider more factors than just the financial ramifications of a case. All of us here at the firm were raised to believe that every human life is sacred. The dignity of human individuals is the foundation of our moral vision. That purpose informs the work we do for each of our clients. This is how we view every one of our cases: We are there to help protect — or restore to the best degree possible — their family economy and their dignity. Our goal is not to just help our clients through one rough patch and then disappear. We want to be there for our clients for life. Your life doesn’t stop after a case has been resolved, and we don’t want our relationship with you to stop either. EVERY HUMAN LIFE IS SACRED 30 Years in the Business of Helping

This year, I will have practiced law for 30 years. Thank you to all of you who have entrusted us with your legal matters and to our friends and colleagues.
