Settlements - What Makes Our Firm Different?
We understand that settlement is more than a legal decision, it is a decision that affects each and every client and their families. We take the time to discuss future plans with our clients to help them decide how best they can use their settlement funds to start the next chapter in their lives.
We don’t push our clients to settle their cases. We wait until the time is right. The time is only right when our clients have decided that they have received all of the medical treatment that they need for their injuries and they have gone as far as they wish to go with respect to surgical options.
We make it clear to our clients from the initial consultation that this is a partnership and we are here to provide them with the best strategy for how to proceed with their cases. We believe in providing our clients with reasonable expectations about what kind of settlement they will receive for their injuries.
We take our settlement evaluations very seriously and we discuss every single settlement evaluation with our clients. That way our clients are fully informed and there are no surprises.
We talk to our clients about what their best choices will be for future employment. In some instances, this may mean going back to school, looking at self-employment options or obtaining additional training so that they can pursue a new job that is within their physical limitations. We do this because we care about what our clients’ lives will be like after their cases are over.
We thoroughly prepare our clients before every settlement mediation so that they are comfortable with and fully understand the mediation process.
We ensure that our clients’ future medical needs are carefully considered in every settlement.
We are aggressive in our settlement negotiations with opposing attorneys and our adversaries respect us because they know we have the reputation of fighting to get our clients the highest settlements for their injuries.
We strategically analyze the law and facts in every case so that we can advise our clients about whether going to court on a contested issue or settling their case is in their best interest.
We don’t make promises that we can’t deliver.
