PHILOSOPHY

Experience and excellent service at competitive rates

  • There is no substitute for experience.
  • Insurers and self-insureds face ever-increasing litigation burdens. They are to receive excellent service at competitive rates.
  • The choices of insurers and self-insureds are to be honored. Their cases should be handled skillfully by the lawyer of their choice, not farmed out to beginner “associate” attorneys.
  • Every defense attorney should make a personal contribution to the fight against fraudulent and inflated claims. Defense attorneys must strive to make trials –where necessary– affordable rather than punitive to insurance companies.
  • Insurers and self-insureds are to be apprized of their exposure and case-settlement options each step of the way, not one week before trial.
