For some unknown reason, many plaintiff attorneys think we are in business to work primarily with defense attorneys. I figured it was time to set the record straight.
That is only one of the reasons I decided to publish this list. By the way, it is not just for plaintiff attorneys but for defense and subrogation attorneys as well. Keep in mind that the majority of the credit goes to the quality experts I had in my stable.
The purpose of this list is to demonstrate the types of cases I have been involved with during my career and the caliber of attorneys I have been fortunate enough to work with on them. I have always strived to work with the best and the brightest on both sides of the aisle. I push our clients to reach for the same goal when seeking new business. Did you ever notice how easy it is to work with quality people/clients? It’s far less drama; I think we all need less drama in our lives.
The practice of law, as we all know, is a symbiotic relationship. Windows of opportunity open and close constantly and the door swings both ways.
