Our firm is unique because many of our clients are lawyers, including firms that you see on TV or on I-95. They consult with us about ethical questions, and they hire our firm to prepare their appeal briefs, answer motions to dismiss and other court filings. We always knew that we won the majority of motions and appeals we handled, but never knew how successful we were. So last year we began to compile whether we won or lost the motions and appeals we handled. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that we won 94% of the motions and appeals we handled last year. Obviously, we don’t win every motion or appeal, but we regularly explain that there is a difference in results depending upon how an attorney presents information. Ask most attorneys, and they won’t be able to say they won 94% of the motions and appeals they handled. We look at cases differently, we write differently, and we use different methods of presenting our clients’ cases, all with the goal that they win their motions and appeals, and get the best results for their clients.
Of course, we use the same techniques for our clients, including our workers’ compensation and personal injury clients. No one wins everything, but winning 94% of our motions sure makes us feel good. The next time someone says all attorneys are the same, and that’s why it’s OK to hire one of those guys on TV, remember that cases are won – and lost – based on how well lawyers handle the various motions and other filings before trial, or on appeal. That’s when you will see the difference at the Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC.
