should I come to Breedlove & Noll, LLP?
First, the initial visit
to our office is free of charge. Second, our lawyers have taken hundreds
of cases to jury trials with a tremendous record of success. Other top rated
law firms retain us to try their cases when it gets to crunch time.
Lawyers are required
to attend mandatory continuing legal education. The lawyers in our firm
are asked to, and have, trained other lawyers in trial skills courses in
these certified programs. We have trained other attorneys in Cross-Examination,
Jury selection, and aspects of Accident Reconstruction and Seat Belt issues.
These are the skills needed to master the most important aspect of any personal
injury case: the Trial. Insurance companies will only negotiate seriously
with those lawyers that present them with a legitimate believable threat
of a trial before a jury.
can I tell if a lawyer has the qualifications and experience to handle my
Ask him/her what his
Trial experience has been? How many jury verdicts has he or she taken in
her career? If he/she doesn't want to answer you should move on to someone
else. Attorneys are rated by an independent survey of lawyers and judges
in the community where they work. We will be happy to show you the ratings
when you come and how they apply to us. Suffice it to say we have the highest
questions should I ask a lawyer at our first meeting?
Ask him how many jury
trials in State Supreme Court and/or Federal Court he, or the lawyers in
his firm have taken to verdict. How will he approach your case? How does
he justify the fee he will charge? What rating has he/she achieved in the
only nationally recognized survey of judges and lawyers?
much time will it take to settle my case?
Each case is different.
Insurance companies and big corporations only respond to one thing. That
is: aggressive actions by the injury victims' lawyers. They have to believe
and understand that your case will go to a jury if they don't act fairly
and quickly. Insurance companies have no fear of the high volume firms that
are interested in quick settlements at the expense of their clients' interests.
will an insurance company listen to Breedlove & Noll, LLP?
They know us and they
know us well! For over twenty years our lawyers have tried personal injury
cases. They know that we will try your case to a conclusion before a jury,
if they don't respond fairly. This understanding on their part cuts out
a lot of the gamesmanship involved. Since they are confident that we will
do the job, they will evaluate your case with an understanding that if they
don't, a jury will. As a result, insurance companies will come to the table
and negotiate more readily than they will if they are facing a lawyer without
our proven record of Courtroom achievement.
my case have to go before a jury?
It might. We take cases
with a mindset that each case is worthy of a trial and prepare it from day
one for that eventuality. Insurance companies know that we take cases with
this predetermined mindset. They know that our preparation is immediate,
competent, and complete. Therefore, they are more willing to negotiate a
case more quickly and fairly, early on in the process.
I be concerned that my case will not get the attention it deserves?
Yes, you should be concerned
about that in any professional relationship. You will be involved each step
of the way. You also have our assurance that your case will be managed by
one of our partners so you will always know who to call.
