The Urge To Merge: Bad News
The Urge to Merge: A Bad Trend for Legal Clients
Legal clients should know that more and more these days, law firms are merging to create huge firms of enormous size and complexity. While good for the partners who sit at the top of these firms and collect enormous fees, this is not a good development in the legal field, for everyday clients. Size does not equal talent, nor does it produce better results. Think about it for a moment: If you've suffered a personal injury causing physical or emotional trauma, do you really want to be represented by a firm where you are merely one client among many, inside the legal equivalent of a "Big Box" store? At our firm, that will never happen. You will always be given partner-level attention and an unfaltering commitment to you. You will have a personal legal advocate on your side, fighting for you. You will never be "just another file," and your specific needs will be met.
If you have been a victim of a personal injury, we can provide you the personal, expert legal counsel that you need at this critical time. We like to say we don't just "represent" clients, we rescue them - because by the time many of our clients come to us, they are facing serious civil law/personal injury challenges. Let us show you what we can do for you, and how. Contact us and meet with us as soon as possible after the accident. For many personal injury victims, the days immediately following an accident are critical, and unfortunately many people take uninformed steps that may compromise their ability to be compensated for the full extent of their injuries. Don't be one of these people who make the mistake of waiting too long before they speak to or retain qualified legal counsel. Be smart about your situation. Be informed. Contact us for a free initial consultation of your specific situation. You will be glad, and relieved, that you did.

"When I fell in that supermarket and knew I had broken my leg, one of the first things that went through my mind was, "How am I ever going to take on a company this size and receive any decent compensation for what's happened to me?" Because of you, I received a sizable settlement payment for my injury. I hope more people learn about the kind of legal talent you offer."
"The act of placing my father in a nursing home was probably the most painful decision I've ever had to face. You took our case on, and you and your associates fought the owners of this business, tooth and nail. You never gave up. As a result, my father's estate was paid considerable money for his pain and suffering."
"My whole life changed on a dark day in December 1989, when I was hit and pinned against a wall by a commercial delivery truck. I was almost DOA at the hospital Emergency Room. Because of my injuries, I cannot work full-time ever again. Because of you and your colleagues' work, I received a large settlement."
"My mother had suffered a heart attack in the fall, and the hospital doctors completely missed this in her vital signs and EKG. My mother died the next day, and she didn't have to. But because of your diligence and talent, her estate received a very large settlement payment, along with revised ER protocols to prevent such errors in the future. For my mother and future patients, we thank you for what you did for her."
"When our son was hit by a car in a crosswalk, our one and only concern was his recovery and well-being. We had no idea what we were facing: A maze of obstacles put up in our path by the insurance company for the driver who hit our son - denying responsibility for the accident. If we hadn't had you by our side, we feel we would have been eaten alive by this insurance company's lawyers. You guided us from day one, and you never rested."
"You know what impressed me most about you (aside from your legal talent)? I know that my injuries from my car accident weren't the worst that you had in front of you - my case was far from the biggest case in your office - but you represented me like my case was worth a million dollars. I can't thank you enough."
"There are two things that I will never forget about my car accident: The sound of screeching tires just before my car was hit by the other driver, and, much later, the sound of you telling me that the entire ordeal was over with, and that I was going to receive just compensation for my injuries. The rest, I want to forget - but I'll never forget you and what you did for me."
"Choosing to hire William D Kickham was one of the best decisions I could have made in recent years. He was very prompt, to the point and delivered on his promises. He is a true professional and I couldn't be happier with his results. I will continue recommended his services to anyone in need of legal guidance."
