Does divorce have you concerned over child custody?

The location in the brain and severity of the injury determines the level of impairment and changes the victim will face. If your loved one suffered a brain injury recently, you may have many questions and fears about the future.

Office Romance Perils: Cupid, Draw Back your Bow, but Not at Work

Heart Tie.pngWithout question, some of the nastiest cases we've handled have started with office romance gone bad. It makes perfect sense; two people break off a romantic relationship but are then expected to get along in the same workplace. One may feel jilted - the other, harassed.
