While pursuing your case, we advance costs associated with obtaining reports and medical records and, in the litigation context, paying for deposition transcripts and hiring experts.

Most injury cases settle prior to trial. If liability or damages is highly disputed in your case and trial is your best alternative then, of course, we will prepare you for trial.

In either event, you will be thoroughly prepared.
