Good communication is the foundation of an attorney/client relationship. Financial wherewithal is also important as it allows the firm to go toe to toe with insurance companies, hospitals and large corporations. Unlike some law firms, we try our fair share of cases to a jury verdict. It is success in trial that enhances credibility when it comes to settlement negotiations. The goal is always to place every case in the best possible settlement position to maximize client recovery.
The client always makes the final decision as to whether or not to settle their case or to allow a jury to make those decisions. We respect the role of the jury in our legal system and respect the difficult job that juries are asked to perform. However, when insurance companies and corporations are unreasonable, we trust the wisdom of the community as expressed in the voice of a civil jury as opposed to insurance adjusters who are rewarded for underpaying legitimate claims.
