The Philosophy of Our Law Firm
Our approach to a lawsuit can be summed up in two words: trial-ready.
We understand the reality of civil litigation: most suits are settled. Certainly, there are many cases that should be settled, instances in which a settlement is fair to all parties and the most cost-effective for our client. But even in those cases, negotiations can break down. New facts may come to light and an evaluation can change in an instant. Your attorneys must be able to shift their preparations from settlement to trial just as quickly.
We defend a broad range of businesses – from restaurants to transportation to retail to manufacturing – in a broad range of business litigation. Our choice not to specialize in any one aspect of a business’s legal issues allows us to be more responsive to our clients.
But it’s how we do business that separates us from other defense and business litigation firms. We provide personal service and establish personal relationships with our clients. When they bring a lawsuit to our firm, they know the people who will work on their case. Throughout the litigation process, our clients have access to their legal team by phone, by email, or in person.
We don’t hire investigators to do witness interviews or site inspections – we do them ourselves. We accompany experts to inspections, and we go to the site of accidents, and we interview witnesses in person to gauge their reactions. That first-hand experience makes us better able to represent our clients.
Because, ultimately, it’s not just your case. It’s your money. And we treat your money as frugally as our own.
