We Shoulder the Risk
As lawyer, I accept the risk in time and money of successfully representing clients who are injured or the family of the person who died at the hands of a carelessly negligent person, business or corporation. By terms of the contingency fee agreement, there is no fee paid unless the case is won.
We are selective in the cases we accept. Selecting the right client-attorney relationship is important. We recognize the uniqueness of each case and client, with the knowledge that the legal process is a journey for justice, often requiring the filing a law suit.
Our ability and willingness to shoulder the financial risk of prosecuting the injury case demonstrate our desire to provide first-rate trial lawyer service in a manner that gives you confidence in the value the law office of Salesia Smith-Gordon provides.
We only handle cases involving injuries or death of people harmed by the negligent wrongdoing of another person, business, corporation or product.
Because we focus only on injury-related cases, we are able to continuously enhance our tactical and trial skills. The firm’s culture is one of targeted intensity from the initial case assessment though the investigation and strategic planning to the execution of the plan. When necessary, we employ special investigators and case consultants such as engineers, accident reconstructionists or human factors experts.
~As one client shares, “Attorney Smith-Gordon and her staff devote themselves to understanding you and the effect of the harm done to you and fights for your rights all while helping you navigate through the legal process.” (Karen, 2015)
The focused lens from which we see as we work on behalf of injured clients is for effective and efficient representation. The primary goals are achieving the best possible results for our clients and making a positive impact on society by holding accountable insurance companies, corporations and people for careless actions which caused harm.
Each case is staffed with the people who can most effectively achieve success for you. We work closely with our clients throughout the case process. Empowering clients with straightforward information helps them to better understand the issues and decisions that must be made.
The legal team may include the hiring of additional members who are specialists such as biomechanical engineers, accident reconstructionists, human factors experts and vocational rehabilitation therapists.
Begin at the End
Extensive strategy stands behind each case we handle at the law office of Salesia Smith-Gordon. We begin with the end in mind, defining what a “win” is for each client and then methodically scripting a strategic plan based upon relevant facts to successfully present the case.
We work to understand the client’s goals and discuss legal issues used to assess the reasonableness and likelihood of success of the client’s case resolution goals.
Salesia Smith-Gordon is a seasoned trial lawyer whose clients find confidence in her experience and respect for her direct yet caring character.
