A person must always weigh the costs against the benefits when contemplating filing a lawsuit. We carefully evaluate the facts and the evidence and make decisions based upon what is in the client’s best interests. In most cases, we use our negotiation expertise in an attempt to resolve the case before it goes to trial. As a last resort, we are prepared to seek resolution in the courtroom where our experiences have made us confident and earned us a credible reputation. We have litigated business disputes, personal injury cases, medical malpractice cases, real estate issues, and contract disputes in state court, federal courts and bankruptcy courts.
Personal injuries involve an emotional component that many firms often overlook. At Witt & Howard, we understand that personal injuries are more than just physical. We carefully evaluate each case and work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and goals. We have prosecuted and defended a wide variety of personal injury claims, including those involving car accidents, wrongful death, negligence and products liability. We strive to develop strong lines of communication with our clients and dedicate our efforts to obtaining the full financial settlement they deserve to move forward with their lives.
Our attorneys represent owners, sellers, buyers, landlords, property managers and developers of commercial and residential real estate with an eye for efficiency and practicality.
