How It Works

We take cases by referrals from a variety of sources, including law firms and insurance claim representatives. Typically, law firms contact us asking for any pertinent information — our services, fees, or curriculum vitae. From there, we discuss the case at hand and, if approved, we move forward with the process. While the referral process for insurance companies is the same, we do offer different services and fees for these types of cases.
