So many injury victims end up settling for less than they need to make themselves whole again, and usually, it’s because they didn’t choose the right attorney. It’s an understandable mistake. With so many personal injury lawyers out there, it can be difficult to find the right one.

We’re confident that we’re the right attorneys for you because when other law firms need to get the maximum recovery for their clients, they choose us. That’s because, at Ardalan & Associates, PLC, we specialize in trial work.

Why Do I Need a Trial Attorney to Represent Me?

While it’s true that many personal injury cases settle before going to trial, that doesn’t mean you don’t need a trial lawyer on your side. We prepare for every case as though it’s going to trial, which means we have a dedicated legal team investigating and building your case from day one. As soon as you walk through our door, our attorneys will commit to getting you what you need. We’ll go the distance for you and prime the case long before it gets to court.

Our legal team has an excellent reputation in the field, and that reputation makes a difference. Insurance companies and their attorneys know how committed we are and how powerfully we’ll argue your case; often, they’ll offer a settlement that provides for all of your needs before the case even reaches trial. And make no mistake – if a settlement doesn’t do that, we won’t take it. We’re always ready to bring a case to court and fight for you before a judge and jury.

We’ll Go the Distance For You- And We Have the Results to Prove It.
