Criminal & DUI Case Results


They say lawyers never make guarantees but here is one that's outrageous, rock solid and absolutely irrefutable: We promise and will guarantee to you that no two cases are alike. You absolutely cannot reliably predict the outcome of one case based upon what has happened in another. Even if the facts seem alike, even if the injuries seem identical you should not expect that the outcome in a case that is similar to yours is predictive of the outcome of your case. So, please don't think that the reporting of results in this section is meant to be a promise or guarantee or even an indicator of how your case will turn out. That is not the purpose of reporting these case results. On the contrary, we report these case results more to illustrate our experience in dealing with insurance companies and other decision makers in personal injury cases so that you have a better understanding of how personal injury cases proceed through settlement or trial. In fact, we sometimes don't include numbers in our case results for various reasons, one of which is that the actual numbers may distract from the point we're trying to make with our case result (other times it may be because the numbers are subject to confidentiality agreements). So, understand that these results are real life examples of personal injury cases and thus can be interesting and informative but they are NOT meant as predictors of how your case will end.
