What To Look For In a Law Firm.

At Edwards & Ragatz, we carefully evaluate your case to identify the best litigation options, such as the advantages and disadvantages of going to trial, your options to appeal, and more. As a result, we typically collect higher settlements than the compensation a victim would receive from an insurance adjuster. 

It is important to beware of any lawyer who guarantees a big settlement or assures victory in court. Here are some factors to look for before hiring a law firm. 

  • All firm partners are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law.
  • Our team has recent trial experience specifically within your case's practice area. 
  • All of our lawyers treat your case as if it were going to trial from Day 1. 
  • Our settlements and verdict amounts consistently fall above our competitors.
  • We have a community and state-wide reputation for excellence and compassion.
  • We are a nationally recognized firm in your personal injury.

After an injury, every second counts. Work with an experienced team to get the justice you deserve. Contact us today for your free and confidential consultation.
