If That's You, You're in the Right Place.

Let me tell you the truth about serious injuries in Washington, DC, and insurance claims for serious car accidents, work accidents, long term (ERISA) disability insurance claims and medical malpractice.​

Insurance companies are generally huge conglomerates comprised of adjusters, nurse case managers, attorneys, vocational specialists, insurance doctors -- on and on. We understand that when you are seriously injured and you need to make a claim, you've probably never done it before, you don't know the ropes, and you are vulnerable in ways you really couldn't have prepared for.

That's where we come in.

We represent people against workers' compensation insurance companies, car insurance carriers, long-term disability insurance providers, and medical malpractice insurance carriers.

We specialize in insurance, for people, and serious accidents. It's all we do.

You're here because of a serious injury or illness to you or someone in your family.  You know firsthand what it's like: the pain, the uncertainty, the stress.  You may be worried about the medical treatment you need, if you're ever going to work again, and how you're going to recover.  You don't want to lose everything you've worked so hard for.

We're the only lawyers in D.C. with 20 published books, guides and reports that can help you. You've made a great decision to learn more and you're in the right place to do that.

Click here if you are a federal or local DC government employee - we will get you the info you need.

What Do You and Your Family Need?

First, if you've never been in this situation before, you probably have a lot of questions - about the legal system, what you should do, and how to make sure you don't get taken advantage of or forced into making mistakes because you just don't know.  That's natural, and we hear that a lot.  You didn't ask for this.  You didn't cause it. And there's no way you would know everything you need to do after an injury - if you're like most people, you've never needed to know any of that before now. 

To help you, we're the only lawyers in D.C. who have authored and published so many books, guides, and reports you can use right now: so you can know what to expect, what you need to do, and how to avoid making mistakes that can cost you dearly.  These are all free, with absolutely no obligation, to anyone injured in D.C., Maryland or Virginia.  

And if you know someone with a special needs child, please let them know that through our work, we've developed a resource guide for parents of children with cerebral palsy, developmental delay, or other special needs. Our resource guide can show them where to get respite care, special camps, and local government and non profit programs for their son or daughter. Absolutely free to any local family.  

Our Story

Let me tell you a little about our story. Most people who meet Keith and I know we put our families first and love helping kids. Between the two of us, we've coached just about every sport, taught religious education, and volunteered at local schools and charities in the area, among other things. At the core, we are both working class guys so we "get it" - what it's like to work hard, be responsible and raise a family.  

As lawyers, we have one mission - serving families after a serious injury or medical condition. To do this, we only focus on helping people who get hurt due to medical malpractice, at work or in a serious car crash, or who have been denied long term disability benefits through ERISA.

Not that this matters quite as much, but we are also highly-rated, award-winning, board-certified trial lawyers with an exclusive practice. 

What does that mean? We only agree to accept cases for people with serious injuries, and limit the number of clients we represent at any one time.  This is so critical so we can put all of their time, energy and resources into helping you.

As a specialized law firm, we think that works best (and so do the people we help). As you'll see, we've been reviewed a lot by honest, hard-working people we've helped, and we have an excellent track record. 

Here's another thing you should know - we don't take a lot of cases, because we're not right for everyone. 

Let's be honest - the people we help have an injury or condition that changes their life, but they don't give up, they work hard to get the most out of life now, even if it's different and much, much harder.

Because most of all, before we take a case, we want to make sure we can help you. That's why we only accept cases if we think we can make a difference in your life.  We want to be the best lawyers for you and your family - not for everybody else.

But enough about us - we want to hear your story.

What Can You Do Right Now? 

You can tell us your story right now by filling out the contact form or calling us at (202) 393-3320.

You can also get a ton of resources and other good information right now about the type of case you have, the legal system, and what to expect.  All you need to do is:

How Do We Help You?

First, we do things much differently than other lawyers.

That starts right now. We offer free information you can use right now: books, legal guides and reports, so you can know what to expect, what you need to do, and how to recognize insurance company traps and avoid making mistakes in your case. These are all free, with absolutely no obligation, to anyone injured in D.C., Maryland or Virginia.

We developed a resource guide for anyone with a child who has cerebral palsy, developmental delay, or other special needs. Absolutely free to any local family with a special needs child.

We want you to have as much information as possible before choosing a lawyer. It's an important decision, and we want you to make the right decision - one that's best for you and your family.

Let me be the first to tell you - we're not the right lawyers for most people.

We are exclusive. What does that mean? We only agree to accept cases for people with serious injuries. And we limit the number of clients we represent. Why do we do this? So we can put all of our time, energy and, resources into helping you.

If you want a lawyer who takes every case or advertises on TV, we're just not right for you.

Finally, we want to make sure we can help you. We won't take your case unless we can make a difference in your life.
