Posted by on Dec 12, 2014


Hi, I’m Prince. I’m an Avid lawyer from Fort Worth, Texas practicing law in Maryland and today is my birthday. It just so happens, today is also the birthday of my new blog. What a coincidence… Most of you know that I recently opened a law firm that focuses in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury. Well this is my platform. This blog will highlight my journey as a new entrepreneur aspiring to build a million dollar law firm. My goal here is to inspire others to go out and achieve their dreams, no matter how silly they may sound to someone else or how out of reach they may be. I’ve found that when I hear of other’s journey to success, it moves me to get working on my own goals. You may be the same.

10 Things I’ve learned since starting my law firm

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014


It’s been a few months since I left the Doc Review circuit and pursued my dream full time of building a million dollar law firm. In a short amount of time, I have grown tremendously. It’s crazy how your whole world changes once you decide to face your fears head on. Most days I feel out of my league. Other days, I feel like a young Johnnie Cochran, but I’m taking in the experiences as they come. I can honestly say being an entreprenuer is not easy. In fact, I’m faced with many challenges on a daily basis, both internally and externally. In a short amount of time I’ve learned so much about myself, my surroundings and how life works overall.

My car insurance claim was denied…now what?

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014


  I was recently retained by someone who was injured in a car accident. Although my client was rear ended by the other driver, the driver at fault insurance company denied liability. I know…..you’re probably thinking the same thing I was….How can the insurance company seriously deny liability when it was clearly their driver’s fault?

In fact, I have heard that adjusters at some companies are told to always deny liability when a claim is initially submitted. This doesn’t change the fact that my client was injured due to someone else’s negligence.

5 Things to consider when getting a speeding ticket

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014


Speeding tickets are on the rise. Something about the summer makes people want to drive faster…or maybe just get out of the heat. The influx of speeding cameras everywhere are also adding to this phenomena. No one is safe. Speeding cameras are more worrisome to me because I feel as though I’m being singled out and punished for something everyone is doing. I use to think my only real solution was to pay the stupid $100-200 fine. But when you know better, you do better. You may think paying a $150 fine is no big deal, but it is. That’s two weeks worth of groceries….One week at Whole Foods…..It could be money for a light bill. It could even be a little something to boost the savings account. Listed below are 5 things to consider when getting a speeding violation:
