About Company:
We're hard-working lawyers for hurt workers. We represent injured workers who have been hurt on the job on land, dockside, or offshore. We also handle social security claims for good people who are too hurt to work. We started off representing employers and insurance companies but soon realized there was (and still is) a need for highly competent attorneys to represent people who might otherwise be overwhelmed and bulldozed by the legal system. Owned by two attorneys who have been married for nearly twenty years, we present a culture that appreciates work-life balance.
