Because some clients do not know I handle these kinds of case, I have updated this website.There are many law firms who do Personal Injury and Wrongful Death work and turn your file over to their para-legals to do all the work. I do my own work. In my last Wrongful Death case, the insurance company hired lawyers from 2 large law firms, one in Philadelphia and one in Washington DC. By the end of the case they were complaining about how much I was papering them and that I was “too aggressive” towards them. In fact, I almost had the judge remove the lead counsel “Super Lawyer” because I caught him misrepresenting facts when I took the Corporation President’s deposition.
The President got so angry at my questioning at the deposition that he walked out to regain his composure. He came back and answered the questions. I out worked both law firms because I worked 7 days a week when the case demanded it. The Sunday before trial the “Super Lawyer” called and the case was resolved the way I had insisted from the beginning. You have to make sure the lawyer you hire is the one who is going to do the work and know your case, otherwise you may not get the best result.
