"Impossibilities recede as experience advances"
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
We utilize an exceptionally streamlined process for handling claims and are continually implementing new procedures to meet the changing needs of our clients. From digital dictation, allowing easy transfer of reports to electronic ﬁles, to apps that allow attorneys to work from anywhere, we embrace technology and everything it can do to make your experience better.
Moreover, our clients have direct, 24/7 access to their cases via our web portal allowing for real time defense coordination with efficiency that is simply unmatched. However, our innovative capacity goes well beyond just technology. We also dedicate ourselves to finding inventive legal solutions to protect our clients’ interests. While our firm may be 100 years old, we build our practice for 100 years into the future.
We pride ourselves on our streamlined case management system and no matter how efﬁcient our procedures become, we continually strive to ﬁnd a way to do it even better. The most recent example is our implementation of a client portal that allows clients to monitor their cases and communicate with our attorneys in real-time, all through our website.
Our processes have allowed us to accelerate ofﬁce procedures and provide clients with high-quality services while minimizing administrative costs. You can expect reports to be completed within three days, settlement paperwork to be drafted within 24 hours, and attorneys to respond to communications within one business day. This ensures that you’re always up to date on the progress of your case.
"There’s a way to do it better…find it."
