Joseph Cockfield can help you through the criminal defense process to ensure you understand your legal rights and will represent you when you need to defend your innocence.

Personal injury is any injury to the body, mind, or emotions of an individual and can encompass several different types of accidents.

After an automobile accident, the towing and storage fees can be significant. A vehicle may need to be towed multiple times, with each tow adding to the total costs. For example, many times a damaged vehicle will be towed from the site of the accident to a storage facility until further arrangements are made, and then the damaged vehicle will need to be towed from the storage facility to the repair shop that the client chooses.  Often clients ask who will be responsible to pay these costs.
