TV Lawyers For Real?

TV Lawyers Dominate the Airwaves: Are they Right For You?

TV lawyers blanket the airwaves.  It seems like you can’t watch TV for more than a minute without seeing a pile of lawyer advertising.  They pretty much dominate daytime TV with lawyer ads.  Not that you don’t see ads for attorneys on prime time television.   Daytime TV works out better […]

I have Medicare and Medicaid, so do I really need to purchase Medical Payments on my car insurance?  I live on a fixed income.  My car isn’t worth much but the bank requires me to have auto insurance.  I’ve heard that Medicare won’t pay for accident injuries but Medicaid will.  […]

Don't talk about your case.

Use of Photo and Video Evidence in Court

Injury Claim Puzzle Pieces

Injury Claim Handling: Hidden Pieces, Unknown Dynamics

Optimizing Personal Injury Claim

OPTIMIZING PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM VALUE. Stepping it Up

Life is a learning experience.  But sometimes, making mistakes along the way hoping to learn isn’t the best approach.  Instead, if you’re serious about something, you hire a professional. Would you get on a jetliner knowing the person in the cockpit had no training and wanted to learn to fly […]
