These matters, as with most cases, involve complex facts that require application to an increasingly complex set of State and Federal laws. These case results represent some of the matters where this law firm was successful in collecting the amounts stated for a client. These case summaries represent just some of the cases we have handled from 2005 when we opened this firm, through the present.
