Our approach goes beyond the courtroom, aiming to develop strategies that protect and advocate for the well-being of bicyclists and motorcyclists.

This commitment is exemplified by our attention to studies like the recent analysis by Anidjar & Levine, which reviewed National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data on fatal crashes involving two-wheeled vehicles. By understanding these regional trends and the specific challenges bicyclists and motorcyclists face, we can tailor our legal strategies effectively. This focus on data enhances our ability to provide robust legal representation and underscores our dedication to fostering safer roads for all bicyclists and motorcyclists.
