Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Ernie’s Approach

Ernie understands that when you are hurt, you are not the only one affected; your family feels the impact, both financial and emotional, as well. However, Ernie also understands that the pursuit of making you and your family whole again (or as close to whole as possible) is probably not your only goal. The great majority of Ernie’s clients, both past and present, have a sincere desire to ensure that their families, their friends, and their communities are made safer by preventing similar acts of carelessness in the future. They simply do not want what happened to them and the struggles that were forced upon them to be forced upon another member of their family, their friends, or their community. Often times, the ultimate goal is that through their pursuit to be made whole again, the at-fault person or company and others will be deterred in the future from behaving with carelessness or reckless disregard for the safety of others.

While Ernie fully recognizes that there will come a time to employ his legal expertise and abilities for you, his first responsibility is to listen to you, your circumstances that led you to his office, and your ultimate goals so that he can properly represent you as a person, not just another case.
