Talk with a lawyer, not a paralegal
Customer service. Personal attention. Return phone calls. Regular case updates.
Your case is important. Whether it is a million dollar trucking collision case, or a $5,000 “bumper tap” car crash case, it has had significant consequences for you in the past, and will continue to have significant consequences in the future. If you are hiring a lawyer, that lawyer should be your primary point of contact. That lawyer should keep you updated about the status of your case before you need to call. You should feel like your lawyer is handling one case–yours. Don’t let your case be delegated to a paralegal. Come to the lawyer who will work for you.
Cutting Edge Technology
At John Cord Law, we specialize in the use of technology to communicate with you, to investigate your case, and to prove your case. We have the ability to forward claim documents to you by e-mail, and we access our e-mail around the clock by smartphone. In automobile accidents, for example, we will determine whether there were red light or security cameras that recorded the incident. We will investigate whether the at-fault driver was using a GPS device, or was illegally using a cell phone to talk or text. At trial, we will use aerial satellite photos of the scene of the collision to explain how it happened, and we will craft an electronic visual presentation for juries.
