At our law firm, we believe in responsible litigation. We hold large businesses accountable when their practices or defective products harm innocent people. It is our job as attorneys to advocate for our clients who have been hurt and to make our community a safer place for everyone. In this video, attorney Patrick Montoya explains how his firm focuses on litigation that improves public safety.

I think litigation lawyers get a bad name. I think people often hear the term personal injury attorney, for example, and they think if you file lawsuit then somebody automatically sends you a check. I found the exact opposite to be the case and to be reality. The reality is big companies who do bad things, they are very well protected. They’re protected by an army of lawyers that’s going to be there. And even when they’ve done wrong, and it’s clear wrongdoing, they don’t want to make it right. So, when I say responsible litigation it means two things. One is not filing frivolous lawsuits. Filing lawsuits that matter for people that are severely injured, who are really injured. For people have suffered real economic harm. And the second part of responsible litigation is the responsibility I have to the community to make it safer. And that’s really where I think it has its weight. Whether it’s making sure that people aren’t driving distracted by texting. And having campaigns to stop that within our law practice. Or, making sure that pharmaceuticals are safe. Or, making sure the swimming pools are safe for children. That’s responsible litigation. Cause that makes sure that the people that are putting those products out there are making them safe and a safer world for all of us.
