In this day of the global internet and prevalent attorney advertising on TV and radio, we take pride in our efforts to deal promptly and directly with our clients. We have taken calls on several occasions from people who were represented in prior cases by larger, more aggressively advertising personal injury law firms who were surprised to talk with an attorney when they called us. Our attorneys believe there is a responsibility to provide good legal services with direct, personal contact with clients.
We make an effort to take calls when they come into our office or return messages left by clients. We’re not perfect. Sometimes calls come in when we are in trial, depositions, or meetings and are not in a position to answer a call at that time. In those situations, our attorneys make every effort to return the call as soon as possible.
We understand people hire us when their lives have been changed by an unforeseen injury. This change understandably creates uncertainty and a need for answers and reassurance. We have found over the years that when we are better informed about our clients’ cases, our clients are better informed about their case and better satisfied with the outcome of their case through direct contact with us.
