When it comes to medical malpractice, our entire legal team has served as defense attorneys before joining the firm. This gives us a unique perspective in order to provide clients with a thorough approach to building their case. We advocate for our clients so that you can achieve the justice you deserve.
Daniel: What I think most differentiates us from a lot of medical malpractice firms is that all of us really have experience in the defense side of medical malpractice. We really know what the defenses are to a case before the defense even gets a hold of the case. So I think that experience in the defense side, which you'd be surprised is not very common, I think that really sets us apart.
Arnaldo: In every case, we're going to have to file interrogatories. We have to get depositions done and various other activities throughout the case. So my job is to make sure those go according to plan and keep the clients aware of everything that's going on throughout the life of the case, especially in the discovery aspect of it.
Nikhil: Most of my clients and even the potential clients I meet with, their biggest worry is the medical bills, because what everyone is surprised to learn is that because we are what's called a no-fault state, it's actually your car insurance, even if you're not at fault for the accident, that's going to pay for your medical treatment. And that's tough to swallow for a lot of people. But because we have sort of relationships with medical providers that we know that often do this work, this car accident work, we're able to get them to really competent professionals, really good treaters who do good work. And also then they don't have to worry about their medical bill.
Paul: We are able to present our client's story in a human way, but also in a way that resonates and keeps the jury's attention.
Daniel: There's a huge difference between reading a transcript in which there's question/answer, question/answer, and seeing the video in which you asked a question and a doctor looked at you like you had two heads for five minutes before giving you the answer. That doesn't come up on the transcript, but that's extremely powerful for a jury to see.
Arnaldo: Last year, I co-chaired a trial with you in Union County, a gentleman who had some misplaced screws in his back. It was a Spanish-speaking client. I remember that specifically. And he came up to me and he was . . . you know, he just told me, you know, "Regardless of what happens, I know you and Paul did everything you could for me, and I just trust that the right thing is going to happen." And, you know, we got a really good jury verdict, and I felt like we did serve justice in that case.
Paul: One thing I remember is from a client who told me after my closing argument in her trial that I fought like a lion for her. Those words always resonate with me, and, you know, ultimately, that's what I think we bring to the table, that we're not going to just do what we have to do, but we're going to go above and beyond and we're going to fight until and in a way that we get the result that the client deserves and that justice warrants.
