Each year, there are about 500,000 collisions involving tractor trailers and 80,000 motor vehicle crashes.


Over and over, we have seen the catastrophic impact those situations have on the lives of our clients and their families. That impact is what makes us so dedicated to this field of work.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for users, and to follow engineering standards that build in safety. Still, every day at worksites around America, in homes and on our roads, product failures result in tragedy for those who should be protected because manufacturers take shortcuts to make profits at the expense of safety.


That same obligation holds true for medical providers and nursing homes – to ensure patients receive care free of negligence. When those obligations aren’t met, lives are placed at risk. In fact, it’s estimated that around 98,000 deaths occur each year from careless medical errors alone.


These are real people, whose lives are changed catastrophically by factors that in too many cases could have been prevented.

  • Mechanical Product Defects
  • Agriculture/Farm Implements
  • Auto Defects
  • ATV Rollovers
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical Device Defects
    • Vaginal Mesh
    • Hip Replacement
  • Medical Neglect
  • Nursing Home Neglect
  • Drug Recall and Pharmacy Errors


A free market means that America is the land of opportunity. However, achieving success as a business in today’s economy is hard. Sometimes a good company struggles even more because of unfair competition, breach of contract, hidden fees, overcharges, and plain old fraud.


These are only a few of the ways big companies can drive small businesses out of business. At CBPW we expose the fraud and make sure the market really is open, fair and free for everyone.

  • Antitrust and Unfair Competition
  • Business Fraud
  • Breach of Contracts
  • Business Interference
  • Securities and Stakeholder Losses
