"Some of our staff were friends long before they started working here and they remain friends after almost three decades of working together. They actually like each other and enjoy making a difference in the lives of others. One of my favorite quotes, which I like to recite to my staff, sums up the work environment we've created at the firm: 'In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and - SNAP - the job's a game!'"

"Rigorously investigating and litigating the types of devastating cases we handle on a daily basis requires relentless focus and dedication to our clients' causes. Approaching things from the perspective that every problem has an optimum solution waiting to be apprehended simplifies our team's outlook on every aspect of each case we handle."
