What is a Trial Lawyer?

He explains that the law firm of Colson Hicks Eidson prepares each case it takes on as if it was going to trial before a judge or jury.

The only thing we do is handle cases that are in dispute. Handle business disputes; it could be a personal injury claim where someone’s injured by the wrongful acts of another person.

Why Should I File a Personal Injury Claim?

Our law firm believes in responsible litigation. This means that when we file a personal injury claim, it is on behalf of people who have been seriously harmed by another person or business. No one receives a windfall, but simply compensation in an attempt to make an injured person whole again. In this video, attorney Patrick Montoya explains the practices of his law firm and how lawsuits can increase safety measures in the future. Video Transcription: I think litigation lawyers get a bad name. I think people often hear the term personal injury attorney, for example. And they think that if you file a lawsuit then somebody automatically sends you a check. I found the exact opposite to be the case and to be reality.

This important task is carried out by the Voter Protection Action Committee, which has legal support of over a thousand total lawyers at polls in all 50 states. In the video, Colson Hicks Eidson partner Julie Braman Kane presents her experience with the VPAC. Video Transcription: In the 2010 election cycle I served on the Florida elections commission.
