A personal injury lawyer may be liable for malpractice and may also be guilty of an ethics violation if options to maximize qualifications for public benefits are not considered.

I am beholden to Mr. Hook and the entire staff who advised me during the difficult time following my sisters’ death. The firm was highly recommended and I understand why. Any bewilderment I felt going through the estate process was eased by the compassion and professionalism exercised by this law firm. I am eternally grateful.
