Experienced. Client Focused. Effective.
You were meant to succeed, be productive, and live a happy and healthy life. Unfortunately, life is not always fair. Sometimes unfortunate and unfair things happen to good people: A debilitating accident, a harmful reaction to a faulty medical drug or device, a business dispute, wrongful termination from a job, abuse of an elderly parent at a nursing home, or discrimination or harassment because of race, age or gender. Life-changing events like these can be stressful and overwhelming.
However, you do not have to be a victim. You are not powerless. You are not alone. You can choose to fight and take back your life. At Borgess Law, we are committed to helping people navigate through the confusing legal system and to rebuild their lives or protect their businesses or property. Attorney Pamela A. Borgess, the founder of Borgess Law, is an experienced and respected trial attorney who aggressively handles civil (non-criminal) disputes and litigation, including personal injury, defective medical drugs/devices or recalled consumer products, car & truck accidents, wrongful death, product liability, nursing home litigation, and contract/business disputes.
She has extensive experience with numerous national high-profile cases, such as the national litigation involving a contaminated drug, Heparin, which claimed the lives of hundreds of people after being manufactured in an uninspected overseas facility. The case was featured in national news media, such as TIME magazine, CNN, Bloomberg and ABC News.
Borgess Law was founded on the principle that serving individuals is an honor and privilege and that clients should be treated with dignity, professionalism and respect. At Borgess Law, we believe that seemingly opportunistic, “ambulance-chasing” attorneys who appear more interested in exploiting their clients’ injuries or legal problems than helping the clients overcome them, bring shame and dishonor to our profession and do a disservice to the clients. We seek to bring a higher level of professionalism, ethics and quality of legal services that are client-centered and results-driven. We only represents people with real injuries or legal problems.
Borgess Law never charges a fee for an initial consultation. If your legal matter is not one that we handle, we will help you find an attorney who does.
