I am so thankful to have received glowing comments from so many of you asking for more THOUGHTS. The following can best be described as an explanation/treatise/overview/journey/ tiptoe through the tulips/trip/voyage/ tour/cruise/ trek as we navigate PI and DUI thoughts.
Clearly most Auto Insurance Co’s are PICASSOS OF PETTINES and/or SHAKESPEARES OF SH_T.
During the Age of Covid we have unemployment at record highs and the temporary closure of insurance companies. They are leveraging this terrible situation to force clients and claimants, who don’t have any other means of survival, to settle their cases for less than they are worth. After the settlement they often will likely delay the issuance of settlement checks.
Myths about PI/DUI cases
YOU CAN GET THE SAME MONEY ON A PI CASE, OR RESULTS WITHOUT A LAWYER OR WITH ANY LAWYER
4 Auto Insurance Rip-offs:
Forcing you to take a “FAST” Settlement
Unsupported claims… being told that “you may lose your claim”
Being asked to “sign here”
When your insurance agent asks, “”do you want to save some money?” …that means an inferior policy. Remember your insurance agent has a vested interest in your NOT making a claim. The more claims they have, the less they make.
5 Costly Misconceptions About Lawyers:
Every attorney has about the same amount of experience and training
If a lawyer is on TV, they “MUST” be good
All lawyers are skilled in the art of negotiating
All lawyers are personally involved in the cases they handle.
Just b/c a lawyer says he or she goes to trial doesn’t mean he or she goes in front of a jury
5 mistakes to avoid when choosing a lawyer:
Choosing a lawyer based on numbers of years in practice
Choosing a lawyer on a single phone call
Being intimidated solely on the fact that the attorney has degrees
Choosing a lawyer that doesn’t offer a Satisfaction Guarantee
Choosing a lawyer that is not a member of the Consumer Attorney of California (a trade association for PI lawyers who are dedicated to honest, ethical legal practices and the highest level of client satisfaction.
Choosing a lawyer that does not have a 10.0 AVVO peer legal rating
5 Steps to a Fair Settlement:
1: See a qualified doctor who can treat you properly and knows how to write a good med/ legal report.
2: Make sure not to talk to anyone regarding your injuries or details of the accident, until you speak with a lawyer.
3: Go to the police station and get a copy of the accident report or have your lawyer do so.
4: Ask a lot of questions. The only way to educate yourself is to educate yourself.
5: Make an appointment for a FREE consultation and auto accident AUDIT.
Questions Accident Victims Ask:
DO I HAVE A CASE?
HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?
HOW CAN I RECEIVE MEDICAL CARE?
HOW CAN I GET MY CAR REPAIRED?
SHOULD I SPEAK WITH AN INSURANCE COMPANY?
HOW CAN AN ATTORNEY HELP ME?
We must all understand the importance of protecting our legal rights and understand neither your insurance co, nor that of the other party, will protect your rights…only a lawyer does that. The insurance company is in the business of making money. That means paying as little as possible on each case.

“Though I am sometimes referred to as a DUI Criminal Defense Lawyer, I choose to not view my clients as “criminals”. I prefer to view them, and more importantly to treat them as good honest people, that have found themselves in a scary and unfortunate situation.”
DRINKING AND TEXTING BOTH CAUSE ARRESTS AND ACCIDENTS OR MAKE A DRIVER LESS LIKELY TO AVOID A DUI INDUCED ARREST OR ACCIDENT, THAT WOULD NOT BE THEIR FAULT. BEING INTOXICATED, IS JUST AS SERIOUS AS BEING INTEXTICATED. A DRIVER MUST DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO AVOID AN AT FAULT ACCIDENT. THE BOTTOM LINE IS “DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE OR TEXT AND GET A DUI OR ACCIDENT… CALL A TAXI, LYFT OR UBER….THEY ARE A LOT CHEAPER THAN CALLING ME”
