For over 15 years, Paul’s primary focus has been defending personal injury victims. Recognized by several publications and his peers as an elite litigator, his tireless efforts have leveled the playing field against massive insurance companies and large corporations.

When choosing a lawyer to represent you, who you hire can have a critical effect on how the case is resolved. “Insurance companies know we're willing to go to court. That impacts their offers,” Paul states.

In over the last decade, Paul’s settlements and paid jury verdicts have eclipsed $200 million. In more than 60 cases, Paul has orchestrated settlements at or above $1 million. But it's not just the size of a law firm's settlements that is important. It is Paul’s policy to never take more money from a settlement than his clients receive in their pockets. This assures that his clients get the most amount of money for their injuries as possible, and the meaning behind the firm’s motto: More lawyer. Less fee.

“Too often, lawyers take advantage of their clients after a settlement by taking excessive money. How is that fair when you're the one suffering the pain?”

Paul does not measure his success by his settlements or victories in the courtroom, but by the effect he has on the community. In 2017, Paul formed his own non-profit foundation, Paul Pays It Forward.

“One of the key messages we hope to convey with Paul Pays It Forward is that our law firm is strongly tied to the community, a community that has helped us grow in many ways. We come into contact with so many remarkable people on a daily basis and we want to show our appreciation by giving back, whether that be by donating financially or giving our time. One of the questions I typically ask prospective jurors is whether someone in their life has helped them in ways they couldn’t help themselves and I ask whether they, in turn, have provided that type of help to someone else. It’s a pay-it-forward principle that resonates with people because most of us have had those types of life experiences at some time or another.”

It is his passion for helping others that led him to his philanthropic involvement, an attribute that sets him apart from most injury attorneys.

“I am a firm believer that giving is just as important as receiving. Seeing people’s joy when they are helped knocks some of the rust off the soul. For me personally, our involvement with St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and our work with Make-A-Wish Foundation is monumental. Having six children of my own, I can only imagine the difficulty and courage it takes for parents to watch their children go through such an ordeal. To do our small part, we donate a percentage of each case we settle to St. Jude and Make-A-Wish Foundation.”
