“I think it is important to recognize that each person’s individual characteristics can result in one person being affected very differently by an accident than another person, even though they may have suffered similar injuries. I like to get to know my clients so that I can better understand how their injuries have affected them and use that information to achieve a result that is fair in their individual circumstances.”
