Most lawyers settle cases; they don’t try them. You want a lawyer prepared to try your case, even though most cases don't get to trial because the cases prepared and the lawyers that are ready to go to trial get better results than the ones who just settle them.
At the O’Brien law firm, we are able to settle many of the cases we accept out of court. We are aggressive in protecting our clients' rights, highlighting the uniqueness of each claim, and insisting the insurance company views you as a person, not just a claim number or statistic. We have a reputation for tough and aggressive advocacy in the courtroom, and insurance companies know that we will take your case to trial if that's what is required to achieve a fair resolution. Having such a solid reputation influences how the insurance companies approach us; they know that trials are both expensive and unpredictable, and they usually prefer to avoid that expense and uncertainty, which allows us to negotiate a fair out-of-court settlement, generally.
