How Are We Different
Our clients are people we care about, not a numbers
We are most happy when we can see the positive impact we have made on someone’s life and in our community. Each case we accept is “big” for that client. Whether you a waitress or judge, single parent or physician, business owner or student, caretaker of ailing parent or seasonal picker/packer, you and your case are important to us.
We make an emotional and financial investment into improving the lives of clients, who have often been devastated by the events we are trying to vindicate. Cases that seem simple, often times are not. Every case is worked on collaboratively with team members. Our approach and selectiveness of cases affords us the opportunity to master challenging legal issues and explore developing areas of law while maintaining client contact. Often, because of the injury, loss of wages or job, medical care and costs, the injured client has insurmountable new challenges requiring assistance. We try to lend guidance helpfulness with resource information.
Since I really do go to court, fight for my clients, try cases and generally expect to win them, the hours put into each case are often long and the preparation intense. The entire firm and those experts we hire work together in a quest to help improve the lives of our clients who were harmed by someone else’s wrongdoing.
Our Size and Structure
I am a solo practitioner with an experienced and dedicated support staff. The firm functions as a boutique firm with its sole focus on injury-related representation. I maintain a tight focus on the firm’s practice areas, hoping to enhance our expertise in the types of personal injury and wrongful death cases we handle. Although we often name individual people in the lawsuit, most often our opponents are insurance companies and businesses who cause harm to real people. Although the firm is quite small, our cases are important with measurable success including million-dollar verdicts and settlements.
I prefer to keep my firm relatively small so that we can preserve our focus on our clients and lead balanced lives. Coordination of talents and strategic thoughtfulness often work best when the mind is clear and focused. Our emphasis in the development of the client-attorney relationship and caring about the needs of the client, coupled with our knowledge and experience, avails us with creative solutions lost to larger firms.
Our size and structure is to our client’s advantage; our true edge is passionate commitment for fair justice.
What Sets Us Apart
We believe that when corporate defendants, insurance companies or individuals cause harm to people through negligent, reckless or other wrongful conduct, they should be held accountable. Our responsibility is to do our best for each client who comes to us after having suffered a serious injury or the loss of a loved one due to the negligence of another. By helping victims, we believe we can make our society better, if even just a tad.
We make a deep, emotional investment into improving the lives of clients, who have often been devastated by the events we are trying to vindicate. No case is simple; each is unique for the individual client and family. Every case is worked on collaboratively with attorney Smith-Gordon and her team of paralegals and assistants. When specific experts are needed, we add the specialized individual as part of the team.
We are a boutique law firm and purposely do not accept a large volume of cases to help assure that each client and each case receives a superior degree of attention, focus and dedication.
Our unique team approach and selective case acquisition allows our attorney and team members the opportunity to master challenging legal issues and explore developing areas of law while encouraging close client contact.
When necessary, we will file suit and go to trial to seek justice for clients. We put in long and intense hours preparing each case and generally expect to win. At the law office of Salesia Smith-Gordon, the whole team works beside our injured clients trying to improve the community, one case at a time.
