About Us

Personalized Representation is our Passion.

Here at the Accident Law Group, our entire firm handles only accident/injury cases. 100% of our work is building, arguing, and winning injury cases just like yours. It is what our founding partners named the firm, because accidents are all we focus on. Unlike other law firms that seem to work every kind of case from criminal, to social security, to family law, and maybe a little personal injury, we at the Accident Law Group chose to focus on one type of law and do it better than anyone else. The Accident Law Group was founded on the principle of providing our clients with exceptional face to face service from trustworthy, experienced attorneys.
