Do I Have A Case?Contact Us
Andrade Law Offices is not a "factory firm" as we refer to law firms that take a high volume of clients and turn out quick settlements. There is nothing wrong with that, as the decision to settle a case is entirely up to the client. However, many clients take the advice of their counsel to settle and regret their decision later. Personal Injury Law firms are dealing with lives, not widgets to be turned out and turned over.
We love to pat ourselves on the back and brag about our successes. The sampling of Verdicts and Settlements below demonstrates that we are a firm that works hard to get what our clients deserve. The attorneys and support staff of Andrade Law Offices work together to humanize our clients to the insurance companies. Remember that insurance company adjusters handle thousands of cases per year, and to them, injury clients are merely a file number to manage. Presenting a human factor transforms that file into real suffering of a living human being with real pain, real inconveniences, and real problems because of an accident caused by their insured, whether their insured is personally responsible or because of negligence.
