A Lawyer Other Lawyers Call for High Stakes Settlement Negotiations 

Steven Andrade has more than 30 years of trial experience in personal injury law. He is the lawyer that other lawyers call to assist with high-stakes negotiations and settlements. Steven is asked to assist in mediation and trials because he knows how to get the highest settlements. Insurance companies always consider a lawyer's track record in a trial when making a settlement offer. They often pay much more if they know that your lawyer has obtained multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts.

Andrade Law Offices represent clients in serious accident/injury and punitive damage cases. If you have been seriously injured due to someone else's negligence, our lawyers are available 24/7 to help you. Just remember that timing is essential, and the sooner you contact a personal injury attorney, the better the result for your case. Contacting an attorney as quickly as possible after the injury enables the attorney to engage the defendant, perform an investigation, and assist the client with liens if needed for medical care. Early investigation is one of the critical success factors in a personal injury case. Photographs, interviews, police reports, and obtaining video from surrounding businesses and even homes with surveillance can make the difference between a nuisance value offer and an offer of the policy limit. Andrade Law Offices has pulled house plans, business plans, permits, camera feeds, taken thousands of photographs of accident scenes, performed thousands of interviews, transcribed interviews, interviewed medical professionals, experts, etc. Andrade Law Offices does what it takes to unearth the evidence to make the case as valuable as possible.

Our attorneys are fighters! Our mission and purpose are to obtain the highest possible compensation for our clients.

Almost every attorney's website says the same thing, but in our case, it is true. Steven Andrade is one of the most brilliant strategists in personal injury law.  If there is a different way to look at a case that will result in the most money for our client, he will find it. Our cases might take a little longer sometimes, but we scrutinize every detail of the incident that resulted in injury to our clients. Other lawyers often call him to participate in their mediations because they know if he is there, chances are they are going to walk away with a significant settlement for their client.

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.  Personal Injury Law firms deal with lives, not widgets to be turned out and turned over. The best attorneys take the time to look at a case from all aspects and devise a strategy for the client to win. 

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.
