Anyone familiar with our Law Office knows we handle Personal Injury Litigation exclusively. We work with injured people from injury to settlement and that can mean all the way to trial. We take exceptional care of our clients and as a result they often ask us to handle everything from Estate Planning to Family Law and child custody.
There are things we see each day that we don't really pay attention to. The reality is that they seem minimal at the time and in most cases they end well. Others however don't end so well.

We use the term compassion frequently and understand that our definition and yours may not be the same. We want to use this forum to explain what we mean and how you benefit when we apply it.
In the last few weeks KFC brought back the Colonel to help sell some chicken. The reality is they nailed it visually because he looks the part. So far so good. The moment he opened his mouth we knew he was less than a good choice. The voice is nothing that anyone we know likes and we predict this experiment will not last long. Image matters.
