My friends and family would say I’m a problem solver. I believe the law is here to provide boundaries so that people can find their way to justice. After a work-related injury, there are often a lot of emotions. People panic, and rightfully so. Bills and hospital debts don’t take time off while you are recovering. I enjoy being the person to help bring hope back into people’s lives in their darkest hours. As the managing partner of the firm, I am committed to making sure every client receives individualized and personal attention. We are not a “big box” law firm and we do not treat client files like an assembly line. When you hire Jerome | Salmi | Kopis LLC, you will receive our best effort every day.
