In a landscape of limits, formalities, and criteria that say no, we’re a firm that dares to say yes. We sync a focus on quality with a commitment to client needs. We educate employees and clients alike on the challenges and subtleties ripe in this space. And ultimately, we refuse to back away from even the most challenging of cases.
With five offices and more than 100+ lawyers navigating the nuances and demands of insurance defense, we have cultivated an approach that’s truly distinct.
So what makes us different? For starters, there are lawyers who occasionally go to trial. And then there are trial lawyers. With more than 1,500 trials under our belt, we’re proud to be the latter. In short, we’re not going to chicken out.
But our aggressive drive is far from the only thing that sets us apart. Others balloon billable hours, go on tangents, or rush an outcome regardless of client preferences.
Not us. We listen. We focus. We deliver.
In fact, there’s one way we put it time and again:
How Do We Deliver?
We resolve to listen to what our clients want. We resolve to understand their business objectives. We resolve to know this landscape better than anyone else out there. And ultimately, we resolve to deliver outcomes.
How do we deliver? By aligning a distinct suite of capabilities and circumstances to create one of the most powerful firms in the state. By blending the right personalities with a relentless focus on outcomes. By syncing a focus on quality with a commitment to client needs. By educating employees and clients alike on the challenges and subtleties ripe in this space. And ultimately, by refusing to say no.
But this is far from a victory lap. Yes, we’ve been producing powerful outcomes for clients for the past 50 years. And over the course of each passing decade, we’ve added offices, clients, and colleagues.
Now, we’re focused on the future.
So we’ll keep growing people from the get-go. We’ll keep amplifying our appetite for challenges. We’ll keep celebrating trial chops as much as we do credentials. And we’ll keep resolving to produce—and prevail—at the highest level.
As we embark on the next 50 years, we see boundless opportunity. This is just the beginning.
