About Art

As a former business owner, and in my personal life, there were occasions when it was necessary to retain the services of an attorney. While some were better than others, there was one common denominator — I, the client, seldom if ever met with an attorney. I dealt with paralegals or support staff, not the attorney I had hired.

Upon opening my law practice in 1987, and remembering the service I received as a client, I made a vow to do better by my clients. Our philosophy is to provide quality, personalized, and attentive service to each and every client. I welcome the opportunity to be of service to you.

We pursue justice for those who have been injured through no fault of their own.

Our Firm Handles:

Automobile Accidents

Before leaving the scene of an accident, get the name, address, and insurance company of the other driver, and the owner, if different from the driver. Don’t give a recorded statement to anyone without speaking to an attorney first. If you do not receive medical care within 14 days of the crash, your automobile insurer is permitted by law, and most certainly will, refuse to cover any of your medical bills, lost wages, and household assistance arising from the crash.

Pedestrian/Bicycle Rider

If you were injured by a motor vehicle while on foot or riding a bicycle, you would generally be covered by PIP insurance: on your car, or if your do not own a car, on the car of a relative that you reside with, or if you do not reside with a relative, on the motor vehicle that caused your injuries.

Medical Malpractice

If you believe that you or a loved one have been the victim of medical malpractice, you can receive a competent legal opinion concerning your rights, duties and responsibilities, and it is absolutely free.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death can be caused by a car, motorcycle, pedestrian, aviation or boating accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, work related accidents and inadequate security.

Take the time to learn your rights before you lose them. Call our office for a free consultation to discuss your rights.

When people sustain serious injuries as the result of a motor vehicle accident, it can be devastating. They often wonder who is going to pay their medical bills and how will they support their families during the time they are recovering. An experienced lawyer can offer critical advice in preserving evidence and preparing your case.

If you have suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another, don’t be victimized twice. You will be up against the insurance industry, big business, and all of their resources. You are not on an even playing field. You need someone on your side to help you obtain the fair and reasonable compensation that you deserve.

Insurance companies try to settle claims as quickly and cheaply as possible, because their focus is making profits.

When you have been injured through the fault of someone else, the insurance company for the person or business responsible for your injuries will usually contact you immediately to try and settle your claim before you know the value of your claim, or before you speak with a lawyer.

You should never sign anything or give a recorded statement to anyone before speaking to an attorney.
