What should I expect during the Initial Consultation

Unrivaled Representation.

If you are dealing with a personal injury or a divorce, you are likely feeling more vulnerable than you have most times throughout your life. Your life is turned upside down. You are worried about how to pay for expenses you didn’t have to consider in the past. We understand. Compassion is a core part of the culture at Cole Legal Group, and our highest priority is making sure the other party takes responsibility for their fair share. In everything we do, we handle our cases with rigorous and detailed negotiation because we know how much difference every penny will mean to you.

Our singular focus is getting you the offer or judgment that is right for you.

Cole Legal Group’s personal injury team has been settling cases and winning judgments for more than 22 years. Our case work has covered car accidents, motorcycle accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, slip and fall, swimming pool incidents, and general negligence. Through our relations with our clients, we learned how common it is for injuries and chronic illness to put a strain on relationships with loved ones and care takers that sometimes end in divorce. To extend even better ongoing relationships with our clients, we have expanded our practice, handling cases for divorce and child custody.

Personal situations require individualized care.

While we’ve witnessed the same rules of law in our cases again and again, we know that your case is personal and unique to you. We know that there is no price anyone could put on the wellbeing of your family and yourself, but the related expenses are real, and we will fight to get every possible penny to cover them.
