The Importance of Early Evaluations and Setting Reserves. We know the importance of evaluations and the reserve process and believe that, in the majority of cases where there has been a preliminary investigation, we can provide an accurate evaluation that will hold up through the life of the case within 90-120 days of answering the complaint.

Billing/Budgets. We are accustomed to and understand the importance of timely reporting, working within budgets, and adhering to billing guidelines. We have adopted to those insurers which have replaced traditional paper invoicing with a paperless system such as is used with Legal Exchange, Counselink, Legal Solutions, Extranet, Allegient, and many others.

Technology. We use the latest technology in the office and courtroom, which has dramatically enhanced the exchange of information and reduced the cost of litigation to our clients.
