Our philosophy of caring about community also comes out in our dedication to our clients. When a person suffers as a result of a dangerous drug injury, he or she does not suffer alone. The community suffers from the diminishment or loss of a valuable person’s contribution. And a toxic contamination has the capacity to destroy the entire community.
