Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
We accepted representation on a tough slip and fall case with the SOL quickly approaching. We worked hard through litigation to get this case resolved. The client has been dropped by two other law firms prior to us taking on the case.

How did you build a successful practice?
People. We care about our clients. We care about our staff. If you treat people with respect and give them the tools to be successful, you almost never lose. This applies to both our staff and our clients.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Someone they can trust. The attorney-client relationship is very special. Many times a client needs more than just someone who understands the law, they need someone who understands real life.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Fairly important. Case are being adjusted by folks all over the country, and sometimes all over the world. Local knowledge factors intolitigation more than it does pre-litigation matters.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We give every client options. We believe everyone has options. We want a client to feel confident in the decision that they make, and they only way to make that happen is to empower them with knowledge.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
We need basic contact information as well as an understanding of what happened. Every situation is unique and the only way we can figure out if we can help is by diving into the situation with that particular client.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
We work harder than the guys across the street. Our typical office hours may be 8am-5pm, but we are always thinking about our cases. We work late into the evenings and most weekends in an effort to help the folks that we represent.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
That we have never recommended a settlement that we wouldn’t take ourselves.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Non-profit work.

Are you involved in your community?
Yes, we have a charity called the Pro Bono Foundation. The Pro Bono Foundation is centrally focused on providing legal services to those causes and clients who have been precluded from legal support due to financial constraints.

    Losing a loved one is devastating. In an instant, your life, as well as your family’s lives, are changed forever. Although monetary awards will never get close to reversing the pain of your loss, a wrongful death lawsuit may help cover the financial burdens following the horrible event.

    Wrongful Death

    A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil lawsuit that alleges that the deceased was killed as a result of negligence, a wrongful action of the defendant, or neglect, and the surviving dependents or beneficiaries are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the defendant’s conduct.

    Under most states’ wrongful death laws, a wrongful death action may be brought by:

    •        The spouse of the deceased;

    •        The heir or heirs of the deceased;

    •        The decedent’s designated beneficiary; or

    •        If the decedent is unmarried and without descendants or a designated beneficiary, the parent or parents of the deceased.

    Nevertheless, no matter who brings the action, such persons who are heirs of the deceased must share the judgment obtained.

    Time Limits

    In civil law there are deadlines in which a plaintiff must file a claim or be barred from doing so. These time limits are called statutes of limitations.

    A plaintiff must suffer some damage before the statute of limitations will begin to run. And as a general rule, a cause of action for personal injuries will accrue (arise) on the date that a party knows or should have known of the injury and it’s cause.

    Wrongful death actions generally must be filed within two years after death. Barring certain circumstances, Arizona, California and Colorado all have two-year wrongful death statute of limitations.

    Recoverable Damages

    Generally, a jury may award economic (financial) and non-economic (pain and suffering, loss of consortium) damages in a wrongful death case. Examples of damages that may be awarded include:

    •        The cost of your loved one’s medical care prior to passing

    •        The value of your loved one’s pain and suffering

    •        The value of the deceased’s financial contribution to the family, including loss of benefits and inheritance.

    •        The cost of funeral and burial services

    •        Emotional Distress

    •        Loss of Society: a child could recover damages based on the value of a deceased parent’s companionship, advice, guidance, love and affection.

    •        Loss of Consortium: a spouse may recover damages based on the benefits that would have been received from the continued life of the decedent.

    In some states, a jury may also award punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded in cases of malicious wrongdoing to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from behaving similarly. However, the states which allow punitive damages have usually capped the amount of punitive damages that may be awarded, or have limited the types of cases where punitive damages may be awarded.

    Establishing Fault

    In order to establish fault of the other party in a wrongful death lawsuit you must prove the party caused the underlying tort (the wrongful act). In most wrongful death cases the underlying tort is negligence.

    Negligence is the failure to do something a reasonably careful person would do; or doing something a reasonably careful person would not do. In order to prove negligence the plaintiff must prove:

    (1) The defendant owed a duty of care;

    (2) That the defendant breached that duty; and

    (3) That the breach caused the plaintiff’s harm.

    Oftentimes, the death of a loved one may be the worst time in your life. It is important to know that you have rights, and the ability to pursue those rights through a wrongful death lawsuit.
