Our clients typically face enormous medical bills and years ahead of expensive care. Often, they can no longer work to pay for what they need. Under our American system of civil justice, the person whose negligence or carelessness caused harm to an innocent person must pay for the harm they caused. But when that harm requires large sums of money for fair compensation, defendants – especially insurance companies – fight hard to avoid accountability.



That’s where our firm steps in. Our job as attorneys is to bring wrongdoers to justice, whether they are large corporations, insurance companies, the government, or professionals like doctors, lawyers and accountants. We seek justice for our clients and safety improvements to prevent injuries to others.


Our Mission

We also work hard to get the answers to questions from our clients about what exactly happened, why, and what can be done to make sure it doesn’t happen ever again to someone else. See more on our mission statement page on this website.

The Communities We Serve

We help clients throughout metropolitan Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland regions. Areas we serve also include northern Virginia (Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and neighboring communities), plus counties neighboring Washington such as Prince George’s County, and Montgomery County, Maryland. Here is a list of communities we serve.

We work with other attorneys throughout the United States on referral or co-counseling teamwork.

    In many parts of the developing world, families play a big part in patients’ hospital care. They not only sit for long hours with loved ones, supporting and encouraging their recovery.

  • Medical valor is on finest display as wind-whipped wildfires roar in California August 5, 2018
    When a raging wildfire — feeding off blowing winds and weeks of desiccating heat, also whipped up a freak, blazing tornado-like vortex with 140-mile-an-hour gusts and a 500-yard diameter — common sense might have dictated that affected Northern Californians should flee as fast and as far as possible. While many did, correctly heeding authorities’ emergency […]
