We know that what our clients want is to get the most compensation in the least amount of time and that is why we pride ourselves on being able to obtain settlements that net the client more than what is expected at trial. In most cases we can recommend a settlement that we believe nets the client more than what is expected at trial, given the delay and trial costs associated with the litigation process. Local experience matters. Richard Smith grew up in Spartanburg and has spent 30 years practicing law in the upstate and the last 23 years in western NC as well. An out of town attorney or an attorney that doesn't handle a lot of personal injury cases or workers compensation cases may not be able to accurately evaluate the most likely jury result or commission result. That is our opinion only and nothing in this section is intended to compare our legal services to those of other attorneys.
All we can do is describe to you our process for evaluating cases and our commitment that when we have to litigate a case that we will commit the time and resources necessary to present your case effectively to the judge, jury, or commissioner that decides the case.
