Legal Resources for Those in Need

If you’ve recently been the victim of a workplace injury or car accident, it can be difficult to find the justice—or simply the information—you need to move forward. This might be because your desk is filled with insurance paperwork, medical bills, and letters from employees and other professionals. Or maybe you’re still recovering from your injuries. Filing injury claims or the right resources can be difficult when walking or getting out of bed is still a challenge.

Thankfully, the legal specialists at Law Offices of Michael J. Bourquard, LLC are only a phone call away. As work and personal injury lawyers, we are always willing to help those in need. Time and time again we have proven ourselves to be the best advocates an individual can have. Whether you wish to take your issue to court, or you simply need assistance in filling for worker’s compensation, we can help you. We promise the most favorable outcome possible.

The Legal Representation You Deserve

Have you found yourself embroiled in a dispute with your landlord?

With landlords having so much authority over tenants, people often feel powerless. They think their landlords are immune to recourse. But they’re not as immune as they’d like you to believe. Contrary to what you might have been told, you have rights as a tenant.

Finding information about those rights can sometimes be difficult. With our help though, we can make sure your boundaries are not overstepped and that you are not denied your rights. If your dispute is taken to court, we are more than willing to represent you. With years of experience in trial preparation, we are more than capable of trying your case to verdict.
