The Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

SHOULDN’T YOU INSURE YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FOR AS MUCH AS YOU INSURE STRANGERS?

The hospital room is filled with John’s family and friends as I walk in.  There he lay, 19 years old with his left arm severely broken in 3 places after getting hit head-on the night before.  After undergoing emergency surgery within hours to place hardware to stabilize the breaks, John now lay in the hospital […]

Larry and Moe, doing no research whatsoever on their choice for an attorney, went with the local bar stool […]
