There is virtually no way for you to know the value of a personal injury case. These values are based upon years of jury verdicts and insurance settlements. Only an experienced…

No One Free Bite Says the Pit Bull Lawyer

I handled a very sad Pit Bull attack case last year in which a woman was attacked in her back yard by the next door neighbor’s dog. She was minding her own business. Her wounds were horrific.  She became addicted to pain killers and the last years of her life were filled with suffering.

Defenses to Dog Bite Claims
