Hiring an attorney can be very costly. Our firm is committed to trying to help clients, without their having to go broke. In some cases, the firm can provide legal services for a contingent fee, with clients only paying the firm from recoveries obtained for the client by the firm.
A client is generally best served if the law firm that represents the client has a team approach to the representation. With a team approach, a client is not treated less favorably than other clients, because of which attorney is “the client’s attorney.” At Tummel & Casso, no case is assigned to one attorney, because the whole firm works for each client.
Civil disputes and litigation are “civilized” forms of combat. Tummel & Casso exists to fight for its clients, within the bounds of the law. The firm’s clients often express surprise, when they gain insight into how much and how hard the firm fights for its clients. As a former client said about Tummel & Casso in responding to a recent survey, “I believe they spared no effort and they spared no expense, in getting a very good outcome in my case.”
