How Do We Keep Evidence Out At Trial

In an auto accident or injury case how do we keep evidence out so that the jury doesn’t hear it during trial? By filing a Motion in Limine. This allows the Judge to review our Motion before jury selection and then rule on it. That way the Judge can rule whether the evidence is admissible or not, outside of the jury’s presence.

Social Security Claims

We now welcome anyone who has a Social Security claim to contact our office. It is another area of the law where we are taking inquiries. If you have a Social Security or Social Security disability claim, please contact us.
