Protecting People Injured by Negligence

At The Law Office of Nick Stein, we do not rest easy until we've explored every possible legal avenue of monetary recovery for our clients. Through a thorough investigation, we can uncover whether a motor vehicle accident, for example, was caused by a negligent driver, a product defect or a drunk driver. If it is determined that the driver was drunk, we can explore whether a restaurant, bar or sports arena was negligent by overserving the driver. Trust us to fight for the maximum compensation possible

We know how to help.
