When I represent you for your bicycling accident, there are no hourly fees. The only fee, ever, is based on my success in the fight against the injustice you have suffered - success by a settlement you approve or by jury verdict and judgment on your behalf. When you need a bicycling attorney to represent you, please consider me. I will appreciate your inquiry by email or phone call. I will listen to your concerns and answer your questions. My goal is to help you overcome injustice.
