Difficult Cases, Proven Results

Our results speak for themselves.

At Pfau Cochran Vertetis Amala PLLC, we accept a variety of personal injury cases, but the common thread that runs through them all is our desire to assist those who have been severely injured. Too often, wealthy and powerful defendants abuse their power or engage in reckless behavior in an attempt to dismiss legitimate plaintiff grievances. Working through their attorneys, they seek to influence case results to their satisfaction, leaving injured plaintiffs buried in legal costs and medical bills and feeling hopeless.

Countering this type of behavior requires the resources and expertise of a seasoned litigation firm – one that is not afraid to strongly argue for your rights, whether in a settlement meeting or in front of a jury. We fully leverage the decades we have spent investigating cases, filing lawsuits, performing depositions and going to trial in order to uncover the truth and obtain justice for the injured. Below are just some of the many cases in which we have delivered success for our clients.
