Make Them Pay What You Deserve!

Caution: Some “distance,” “virtual,” “out of state,” or “nationwide” law firms only agree to represent you “Pre-Litigation.” This often means you are dropped as a client if a quick (and low) settlement is not achieved “pre-litigation.” Defendants easily figure out if you are represented by a law firm posing a nuisance threat.
