Our Areas of Focus
Our attorney brings a certain kind of advantage to our law firm. After spending years on the side of insurance companies, she’s able to understand how insurance companies view civil claims and the lengths they’ll go to in order to undermine individuals for the sake of saving money.
We offer civil claims services in:
- Insurance defense
Most notably, our firm assists individuals and families who are seeking to recover damages after they’ve suffered injuries in accidents caused by negligence. Personal injury claims seek to secure financial compensation for damages that include medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering from those whose actions have directly caused injuries or death.
When to Hire an Attorney
If you’re unsure of whether or not you have been wronged financially, it’s in your best interests to schedule a consultation with our attorney. Because our initial consultations are free, you have nothing to lose by meeting one-on-one with a legal professional and learning more about whether you have a case. Once you’ve hired an attorney, they can handle all the legal details of your lawsuit and use their firm’s resources and connections to benefit your claim.
Common actions an attorney can take in working on your civil claim include:
- Interviewing other parties and witnesses to build your case
- Handling all correspondence with the other party’s lawyers, insurance companies, and the court
- Filing briefs, motions, and other documents
- Engaging in settlement negotiations with the other party’s attorneys
- Presenting your case before a jury and/or judge
Many civil claims are regulated by state and federal guidelines and deadlines. A civil law attorney understands the deadlines for various claims and can work within those deadlines to ensure you don’t miss your opportunity to secure the financial compensation you need. The legal system is complicated for any ordinary individual to navigate on their own – we can be by your side and communicate honestly and clearly with you throughout your case.

Civil law attorneys are also known as litigators and can be hired by clients who wish to pursue a lawsuit against another individual, party, or entity. While there are countless areas of law one can file a claim in, most claims concern the recovery of money or property. While criminal cases are brought about by the court to impose sentences like fines and jail time, civil claims are filed by individuals who wish to recover damages they may have accrued if they feel they have been wronged.
After an injury, every moment matters. Michelle is here and ready to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
