By riding in a paceline, cyclists can reduce wind drag by as much as 50%. Hiring a lawyer should work the same way, reducing friction and making your life easier.

If you’ve been injured on your bike and need legal help, I am here to work with you and take on the headwinds of your legal troubles. Let’s go further together.

Areas of Practice

Bicycle Collisions

Collisions are an unfortunate reality for cyclists. Even when you do everything right, distracted drivers can cause serious harm in an instant. A bike accident calls for a bike lawyer to help you recover. Insurers don’t always understand the laws surrounding bikes and frequently undervalue the replacement cost of bicycles.

Defective Products

As a consumer, you trust that products you buy will be safe when used as intended. It can be hard to know what to do when your injury is caused by a product failure or recalled product, but consulting with an attorney can help you take the steps you need to recover.

Dangerous Road Conditions

Construction sites and unmarked hazards can turn a road ride into a trip to the hospital. Government entities and contractors owe a duty to ensure that roads are safe for cyclists even during construction. I have represented numerous cyclists injured on public roads due to unsafe conditions.
“Life is like riding a bicycle – in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
