Personal Attention and Personal Involvement

9464182I started my legal career at a law firm that represented insurance companies and the people that couldn’t or wouldn’t control their animals. I learned how the insurance companies investigate injuries caused by these poorly trained animals, and how they collect evidence against the injured people.  Insurance companies evaluate claims in terms of dollars and cents – not in regard to the people that were hurt and the lives that were forever changed.  I worked with insurance adjusters to put a dollar figure on the traumatic injuries suffered by people in Illinois dog attacks, trying to minimize the insurance companies’ risk of paying money to the injured.

I grew frustrated with my role in the process and wanted to play for a different team.  Insurance companies are in business to collect premiums and keep that money for themselves.  They are not in the business of compassion or helping injured people deal with the tragedy thrust upon them and their families.  Now, I want to use the knowledge and experience I gained while working for insurance companies and put it to work for you and your family.  I want to help injured people in Illinois get the peace of mind and security hat they deserve as they recovery from their dog bite injuries. You are more than just a claim number or another file in the cabinet – you are a person with issues and problems like no one else, and you need someone fighting on your team.
