A Message from Mr. Kammholz:
I am proud to be a lawyer in that I've been given an opportunity to help people when they are truly in need. I enjoy getting clients the money they need to pay for massive medical bills or to cover their lost wages. Other times, the best way I can help is to tell potential clients that they honestly don't have a case, or if they do have one, they won't get enough out of it to make it worth their while.
I grew up in Washington D.C. and went to The University of Maryland at College Park. I'm a Terps fan all the way (sorry Syracuse). In my third year of law school at Boston University, I had a choice to make about where I'd practice law—Rochester, Boston, or San Francisco. I chose Rochester.My mother and her five brothers and sisters grew up in Rochester on Melrose Street. My brother and I used to spend part of our summers at my grandmother's cottage on Conesus Lake. All of this made my choice easy. My grandfather also made my choice easy. He was a founding partner of a law firm that now employs 200+ lawyers in Chicago specializing in labor law. He talked to me about the advantages of working in a smaller city (the little pond theory). I'm glad I listened to him. Rochester has been wonderful to me and to my family.
While becoming a partner at Faraci Lange was a dream come true, I also always dreamed about owning my own firm. My Grandfather left a prestigious firm to start his own firm when he was the same age that I was when I left Faraci Lange. I knew it was the right thing to do when it was my turn.
My wife, Karen, and I have beautiful twins - Maddie and Brennan - the greatest kids ever known!
Construction Accident That Left a Father of 2 a Quadreplegic — This was the largest case that I have resolved to date. The case settled for $8.5 million.
Truck Accident Case - Young Woman Suffered Serious Brain Injury — This case was the ultimate in challenges. A young lady whose car stalled in the middle of an intersection was struck by a truck and suffered a massive brain injury. Even though the truck driver had the right of way, we were able to show that he was speeding at the time and that his brakes were defective.
Confidential Settlement - Brain Damaged Baby Medical Malpractice — Birth trauma cases are the the most challenging plaintiff's cases. They are highly emotional, often with devastating injuries. This case was no exception. A beautiful little girl was left with massive injuries.
Confidential Settlement - Laboratory Error Resulting in Cervical Cancer — The smallest of errors led to a serious delay in the diagnosis of cancer, and the need for extreme treatment.
