Mr. Distasio speaks about the role an attorney plays in your case and in your future.
Some Information on the Role of a Personal Injury Lawyer
A personal injury lawyer should act as your advisor and your advocate. At Distasio law firm we know and understand those two roles. In private, we are your advisors. We will advise you in private about the strong points of your case and the weaknesses of your case. We will advise you when it makes sense to accept a settlement offer and when it does not make sense. We will advise you when it makes sense to file a lawsuit and when it makes sense to try you case before a jury or a judge.
The second role of a personal injury lawyer is to act as your advocate. That means in public, when dealing with the courts, the insurance companies, and the corporations, to present your case in a way that emphasizes the strong points about your case and demonstrates why you are still entitled to compensation even with the weak points of your case. Of course, the most important part of acting as your advocate is to try your lawsuit before a jury or judge. At Distasio law Firm we are not afraid to try your case. I like to try lawsuits and when it makes sense to do so I will.
