Can Your Lawyer Get You a 400% Increase?

My lawyer doesn’t suck!” is something we often hear from our clients. How do they know? I’ll tell how you Jake knows… Jake is a recent client who hired us after his previous lawyer had taken the case as far as they could. With our unique skill set and aggressive representation we were able to get a 400% increase in settlement funds for Jake! That is 400% over and above what the previous lawyer got. This is a common story for us. It is one of countless experiences we share with our clients and one of the reason they each know that we are the best. #MyLawyerDoesntSuck

Often clients are afraid to hire a personal injury lawyer because they think that the 33% settlement fee taken by the lawyer is too high. In all honesty, I agree for some cases. There are a few smaller cases where it may not make sense for a lawyer to get involved. That is more rare then you think. It will come down to how much do you trust your lawyer to actually get you the highest dollar amount possible? Are you confident they will do everything necessary to maximize your settlement? Are they willing to actually go to trial or would they prefer to sit in their office in jeans and a polo shirt making some phone calls until the dollar amount is finally high enough for them to pay their rent that month?

The dirty secret in the personal injury world is that most lawyers are lazy. They haven’t been to court in so long they forget how to even dress for it not to mention what to actually do in the court room. Personal injury work is so volume driven that many lawyers are used to the comfortable setting of writing a few nasty letters and making a few nasty phone calls hoping for a decent enough settlement that they can then sell it to the client as a good ending to their case. Meanwhile, they fully know they aren’t maximizing the settlement. They essentially become pencil pushers. Stuck in a rut of volume based personal injury work with mediocre settlements at best.

Not us! Our bicycle crash attorneys are incredible. We show up to work every day dressed and ready for court. Why? Because we actually go to court very often for our clients. We are not lazy. Also, it is just a principle of showing up prepared for a battle with your best foot forward. It feels good to be ready. How do you think a soldier would feel if he showed to the front lines of a war dressed casually in street clothes? He may be a good soldier, but he wouldn’t feel like it that day. We stand out because we are good at our jobs, in fact we are the best bicycle crash lawyers in the entire country. We also stand out because we dress like it. #MyLawyerDoesntSuck

We work on cases likely 2-3x as long as casual mediocre law firms work on cases. We actually take cases to trial. We are not looking for the easy cash in a quick settlement. We look for the best possible outcome for our clients even if it means working on a case twice as long and filing a law suit. We ride bikes and we appear in court as regulars. Like in Jake’s case, we were able to get a 400% increase in settlement because we worked the case for over a 1.5 years, filed a law suit after the insurance company denied our requests and repeatedly offered us low settlement amounts, and we forced them into litigation- all with the single purpose of getting a real and meaningful settlement for our client. #MyLawyerDoesntSuck

We continually strive to sharpen our skills ad our education. Completing exclusive and expensive litigation training through the very best resources. I have recently completed additional certification of advanced trial skills through the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. These sessions were often one on one with the some of the most prestigious attorneys and judges in our country. Worth every penny, and makes me an even more skilled and bad ass attorney. #MyLawyerDoesntSuck
