Your fight is our fight · No fee until we recover money for you

Experience matters

We’ve built our reputation winning personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and workers compensation cases.

More than 150 years of combined experience standing beside you.

Major corporations and insurance companies pay experienced in-house legal teams to fight virtually every claim that’s brought before them. Their goal is to manage financial loss, often victimizing the claimant further. When you or a loved one are seriously injured or worse, you need to choose your law partner wisely. The law firm of Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr concentrates on serious personal injury matters and civil litigation. Our breadth of experience and considerable resources give our clients the firepower to confidently take on even the largest adversary.

At JKGS, we’re passionate about what we do — but you’ll quickly find we’re truly compassionate attorneys. It can be hard to feel comfortable sharing the burden of personal loss or the pain of catastrophic injury. We’re here to listen, to put you at ease, explain your options and begin the fight to get you the justice you deserve.

You don’t pay a fee unless we recover money for you. While most cases will be settled out of court, we approach each case from the beginning as if we are going to trial.
