When confronted with an injury due to the negligence of others, perhaps
the best advice one can receive is to do everything within their power,
to retain the services of the best personal injury lawyer possible. Finding
the best lawyer can be confusing and difficult for someone who has no
prior exposure to the legal field. Many of the best lawyers don't
do significant advertising and are only well-known to legal insiders or
others in the know. With so much on the line, especially in the fields
of personal injury litigation, and criminal defense litigation, it is
critical that the best lawyer is retained.
All too often people choose the wrong counsel with devastating consequences.
People unknowingly go to trial with a lawyer who has never obtained a
successful settlement, and are shocked when they see how outclassed their
lawyer is in court. And of course, perhaps the most common scenario is
when a person is taken in by a television ad promising that he or she,
is the best lawyer in Las Vegas, and all but guaranteeing the potential
client untold riches only to find out that a paralegal exclusively handled
their personal injury claim and took the first pathetic offer that the
adverse parties' insurance company was willing to offer (It goes without
saying that the client actually meeting the lawyer depicted in the elaborately
produced television commercial who makes the lavish promises of millions
will rarely, if ever occur.).
It is within this context that Oronoz, Ericsson & Gaffney, wishes to
gratefully acknowledge the outstanding litigation performance of
Tom Ericsson and
Luke Gaffney on two recent cases. Both cases involved lengthy and extensive pre-trial
preparation, which resulted in incredibly favorable outcomes for each
of the Oronoz & Ericsson clients.
Tom recently played a major role in negotiating and resolving a hard fought
wrongful death case. While recognizing the obvious impossibility of healing
the massive emotional trauma caused by the defendant in this case, Tom's
efforts focused on obtaining an amount of compensation for the family
that would at the very least guarantee that their future lifetime financial
needs were met. Tom's skill and diligence did in fact result in a
case resolution which will provide the surviving family members with a
very comfortable standard of living for the rest of their lives. With
their financial needs taken care of, the family is now able to focus on
overcoming the emotional damage caused by the defendant.
Luke recently defended a client at trial against numerous life sentence
counts. His extraordinary courtroom performance at trial resulted in the
jury returning a complete not guilty verdict on all counts. The two other
defendants in the case were both convicted on all counts and if the appellate
courts uphold their convictions, will serve life sentences. Luke's
client is home with loved ones, putting her life back together.
These cases exemplify the type of service that is demanded at Oronoz, Ericsson
& Gaffney. Each case is approached as a team, with input and analysis
required of each lawyer in the firm. This ensures that the chances of
recognizing all available avenues of redress are maximized for each client.
These cases and all others are approached in this manner.
When looking for the best personal injury lawyer for your case, interview
many, ask for proof of performance for past cases, and ask persons who
work in the legal field for recommendations if possible. This advice is
critical. Some unscrupulous lawyers will brazenly lie and assert that
they are the best lawyer for your situation. Subject each and every potential
hire to a significant degree of scrutiny. If this advice is adhered to,
your chances of hiring the best lawyer for your situation will skyrocket.
