When people are asked to name a few things that they value most in life, their good health is always one of those things.  When an injured person attempts to resolve an injury claim without representation, that person is telling the insurance company that he or she will accept whatever value the insurance company decides to offer for that loss of good health, even if it is not fair.  Unrepresented people have no other recourse, and the insurers know it.  Attorneys enforce your right to have your good health and lifestyle evaluated based on your value.   When a case is prepared by an attorney so that it is ready for a jury trial, a jury trial, and even litigation, are often not necessary, as the insurer evaluates the case in a way that it can be settled to your satisfaction.

There are lots of personal injury attorneys, why should someone choose the attorneys at Gosanko & O’Halloran?
There are not just lots of personal injury attorneys, there are lots of good personal injury attorneys doing good work to enforce the rights of injured people.  People who choose Gosanko & O’Halloran are doing so for 3 reasons, (1) Reputation; (2) Resources; and (3) Responsiveness.

What about your Reputation?
Our Reputation is paramount to us, and our ethics and values won’t be compromised.  We are consistently rated as some of the best attorneys in our field by Super Lawyers, AVVO, The National Trial Lawyers, Rue Ratings, and others because we prepare every case to win at trial.  The big insurance companies and other attorneys respect us because we are willing to try the tough cases and fight for the little guy, doctors respect us because we achieve great results for their patients, and we have earned the trust of the community we serve.

What do you mean by Resources?
When you take on a big insurer, it is like David v. Goliath.  We have the Resources – financially, and in knowledge and experience, to look eye to eye and go toe to toe with the insurance giants.

And why is Responsiveness important?
While we may have the big firm resources, we remain agile enough to be Responsive to our clients and provide personal attention to their needs.  At Gosanko & O’Halloran, your attorney is always available to you because we know that our personal relationship with clients leads to better outcomes.  Communicating with our clients is a top priority, and whether it is in person, over the phone, by email, or via Skype, we ware available to respond to your needs.

When an injured person is looking for representation, what do you recommend that person do to ensure he or she is making the right decision?
Research is a good place to start, but be careful not to select an attorney solely based on an online search result.  Look at the law firm’s website to see if what that firm is saying fits with your values, review third party resources like Super Lawyers and Avvo to see how others view that firm, and most importantly talk to the attorney.  When a potential new client calls Gosanko & O’Halloran, that person will always have the opportunity to speak with an attorney, and we never charge for our in-person consultations.  We generally invite our clients to the office to meet with the attorney and team before we begin representation so that all of your questions and concerns are addressed from the outset and we can begin building a relationship with you.  If necessary, our attorneys are available to meet with you at your home or another convenient location of your choosing.
