PayneMitchell Law Group is centered on several core principles, including a deep belief in our clients and their cases; an unparalleled tenacity in seeking truth from defendants who may wish to hide or avoid liability; excellence in advocacy; and an ethical and honest approach with our clients, juries, courts and opposing counsel.
Most of our clients are facing life-changing events – either serious and permanent injuries, or perhaps even the loss of a loved one. Families trying to cope with these circumstances deserve a legal team devoted to a personal and individualized approach. PayneMitchell Law Group delivers this level of service in several ways.
For starters, we only commit to take cases in which we believe that our client’s position is correct – and that the client deserves significant compensation. Then, we operate under the belief that juries are smart. It’s not enough to “sell” a jury a case. So we must have our hearts and souls behind our clients and their cause. We also do our homework. We carefully investigate each case, and our lawyers personally meet with each client before agreeing to take the job. By exercising this level of care, we develop not only a relationship, but also a stake in a successful outcome. Ultimately, we’re sincerely motivated to fight for our client’s rights – and passionately driven to convince a jury that our position is correct.
By definition, defendants in lawsuits seek to limit their exposure. Often they accomplish this goal by hiding information, documents and witnesses. In order to ensure that critical evidence is exposed, that the truth is revealed, that positive change is made and that our clients receive just compensation, we are relentless in our pursuit of the evidence. Once PayneMitchell Law Group takes on your case, our law department interviews every critical witness, doggedly pursues the defendant’s documents and forces key witnesses to testify under oath. As one might expect, this approach has consistently resulted in outstanding results for our clients – either by way of trial or settlement.
Ultimately, success in your lawsuit depends upon how well your legal team can advocate your position. That’s why excellence in advocacy is one of our core principles. It means taking on only a few cases, then devoting substantial time and resources to prosecuting those matters. It also means working harder to hone our trial and settlement presentations through Focus Groups and Mock Trials. The goal is not simply to be prepared – it’s to be more prepared than our opponent.
At the same time, aggressive prosecution and ethical representation are not mutually exclusive. So we practice the highest ethical standards – because we believe it’s just the right thing to do. We also believe in telling our clients not only the good, but also the bad – so that they can make the best decisions for their families. That history of ethical and candid conduct with clients has earned PayneMitchell Law Group their confidence – and often results in referrals. In the same way, our conduct with opposing counsel and the courts fosters credibility and respect, as well as benefiting the legal system as a whole.
