We Are Located at 844 East Sahara
Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89104, Telephone: 702-731-9222,
Although our street address says "Sahara Avenue,"
our building is actually on a small cul de sac type
street coming off Sahara.
We are near the intersection of Maryland
Parkway and Sahara. We are across the street from the
Commercial Center Shopping Center.
We are approximately halfway between Maryland
Parkway and Paradise, on Sahara.
We are on the north side of Sahara Avenue.
You will see on Sahara Avenue, at this location, the
following businesses: Tower of Jewels (formerly Bertha's
Furniture); Christensen's Jewelers;
and Statewide Lighting.
If you will turn into the cul de sace
street between the Church of Scientology building and
State Wide Lighting, the first thing you will see on
your right is a large, gray, two-story office building
with the name of our law firm prominently displayed.
There is ample parking right in front
of the building for our clients.
There is wheel chair access on the south
side of the building.

Office hours & fees
Our office is generally open 8:30 to 5:00 p.m. on every
normal business day.
Our office is closed on holidays that
are recognized by both the state and federal court system.
If a client cannot come in to see us during
the normal business hours, we are happy to accommodate
them in any way reasonably possible. We will, if needed,
come early or stay late to see clients. We will see
clients on Saturdays.
If the client is unable to come to the
office because of transportation or physical limitations,
we will be happy to send someone to give the client
a ride to the office; or if preferred, make a "house
If you call to speak to a specific attorney
and he is not available when you call, we welcome the
idea of "phone appointments." This is where
the attorney's secretary will note a specific day and
time when the attorney will call you at a designated
phone number. In this way, "telephone tag"
can be avoided.
In the vast majority of cases, we represent
the clients on a "contingent fee" basis. This
means that we take a percentage of the expected recovery.
We do not receive any funds unless the client receives
a settlement or judgment.
No settlement is made without the client
first giving express permission. The client will be
informed of how much he or she will "clear"
before any settlement is made. In other words, the client
is fully informed as to what he or she is going to "clear"
from the settlement before we enter into any agreements.
As the client will find out if he or she
checks around, virtually every lawyer in Southern Nevada
charges essentially the same fee percentages on personal
injury cases (typically one-third of the case is resolved
without substantial litigation; 40% if trial or substantial
litigation is involved.) Our fee percentages are essentially
the same as everyone else. We do not "play games"
with the cost aspect of the fee agreement. Everything
is laid out, in writing, and itemized, for the client,
before he or she signs any settlement documents. It
is our policy that we never take more fee money out
of any settlement than what the client gets. Or to put
it another way, the client receives more money from
a settlement than we will receive in fees. In over 17
years of practice, we have not violated this principal.
When essentially all personal injuries
are charging the same fee percentage, the prudent client
should try to choose the law firm that will give the
best service, and provide the most value. We believe
that our firm provides the customer/client with superior
value for his/her fee dollar. We do not take short cuts
with "legal assistants," or try to run a volume
"mill" business by settling without litigation
most every claim. We do not spend large sums of money
on television and bill boards advertising, and make
up the difference by "cutting corners" on
service by having legal assistants and secretaries do
the work that should be done by attorneys.
In motor vehicle cases, we handle,
free of charge, the car damage aspect of the case. (Other
law firms typically make the client handle that important
aspect of the case themselves. We believe that that
