We have represented hundreds of families over the last 15 years against local and national nursing home chains.  We have recovered millions of dollars for residents and their families.   We pursue Wrongful Death and Survival Claims on behalf of residents and their families for injuries and death. 

Our focus is on helping and representing the elderly.  The elderly need a voice who will fight on their behalf.  If your loved one has suffered an injury or abuse at a nursing home, or if you are frustrated with dealing with the management of the nursing home, please feel free to contact us.  

The neglect of a nursing home resident often arises from poor training of the nursing staff and lack of proper staffing.  Often nursing homes fail to provide sufficient staff to keep your loved one healthy and safe.  If you see signs of under-staffing and lack of attention to your loved one’s physical and mental needs, please feel free to contact us.
