What We Can Do for You

We are committed to making your legal experience easy and painless. Check out our six steps below to learn more.

We Will Evaluate Your Case

You’ll be greeted warmly by a member of the CIL team when you reach out on the phone, by text message, or via email. We will listen diligently as she aids in the beginning phases of your case. This is a service we offer our community free of charge.

Set You Up for Success

You need proper documentation from as early on as possible. That includes your testimony and evidence, such as photos and medical records. For your safety and successful recovery, we recommend getting evaluated by a physician immediately after an accident. It’s important to track your health so you can identify that an injury did, in fact, develop from the incident with proof.

Warmth and Belonging

Our clients are part of our family; we take every file and their family seriously and are there for you every step of the way.

Fierce Advocacy for a Fair Fight

We are the David defending you against the Goliath: billion-dollar insurance companies. You will not be short-changed to serve a corporation’s bottom line.

Maximal Recovery

It’s time to get your life back – but in order for that to happen, you need proper care for your mental or physical recovery. We will ensure you are advocated for to the fullest extent so we can make you whole again.

Settlement Compensation

All of your losses will be accounted for in your settlement. This is the silver lining that communicates that dignity is your right.
