What Our Clients Say

Over the years I have presented many challenges to John Boyd and Nancy Hollander, none of which have presented obstacles too great to overcome. The level of combined intelligence, competence, creativity, and expertise has been remarkable. Having succeeded on every level in every engagement, there is not a legal team I would rather be working with in any future challenge that may present itself.
J.B.

David Freedman is the best attorney I have known in a more than 40-year career in finance and investment management in which I dealt frequently with prominent attorneys in many parts of the country. I measure “best” not only in terms of his knowledge of the law, his creativity and his experience, but also in the energy he brings to his work and, above all, his obvious and heartfelt concern for his client’s well being. His work on my behalf stands out as one of the great experiences of my life.

We all encounter situations that pose some risk of injury from time to time. While these situations might be due to bad luck, in other cases they are caused by individuals’ negligent behavior. If another person’s actions caused you bodily harm, you have a right to seek compensation. Depending on the severity of the case, some of these claims result in complex lawsuits.

You need an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. We will take you through the entire claims process and allow you to recover from your injuries peacefully. Our firm handles all types of injury claims, such as medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.

People should feel safe as they go about their duties at work. Regrettably, some workers are subjected to illegal and unfair conditions by their employers.

Contact our team of employment law attorneys today to get justice. We represent victims of sexual and racial harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation and many other unfair labor practices.

Members of the U.S. Armed Forces deserve to be treated fairly and with dignity. However, the rights of service members are often infringed upon in military criminal investigations, court-martials, or separate administrative proceedings. If you have been accused of violating military or civilian law, it can threaten not just your reputation but also your freedom and future.

While you are entitled to an appointed military defense attorney, they may not offer you the personal time and attention you deserve. In addition, they often lack sufficient criminal litigation experience. Our legal team has a wealth of experience in military law and a proven track record.
