I have a serious, life changing injury and I need help. I need to learn about medical malpractice, car accidents, workers compensation or long term disability benefits in D.C., Maryland or Virginia.

Click here if you are a federal or local DC government employee.

You're in the right place.

How Can We Help You?

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 8 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.

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 published 8 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 Frank know they put their families first and they love helping kids. They've coached just about every sport, taught religious education, volunteered at local schools and charities in the area.  They're both working class guys so they "get it" - what it's like to work hard, be responsible and raise a family.  

As lawyers, they have one mission - serving families after a serious injury or medical condition.  

To do this, they only focus on helping people who get hurt due to medical malpractice, at work or in a car crash, or who have been denied Long Term Disability benefits.

They're also highly rated, award winning, Board Certified trial lawyers with an exclusive practice. 

What does that mean? They only agree to accept cases for people with serious injuries, and limit the number of clients they represent at any one time.  This is so critical so they 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 a track record. We're not on TV or in the Yellow Pages (do you want a TV lawyer for a life changing injury case?).

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:

And after getting the information you need, when you're ready to tell us your story, you can fill out this confidential form or call 202-393-3320 to speak with a real, live person in our office who will listen to you and help you get started. 

But above all, don't wait.  Take action today.  We can't wait to listen to you.

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.
