Why Should I Hire The Tom Riley Law Firm ?
At the Tom Riley Law Firm, we believe that knowledge, experience, and diligence lead to successful outcomes in any contested case, be it workers compensation or personal injury and wrongful death occurring outside the workplace, such as: car accidents, dram shop actions (where a bar or restaurant serves a customer to the point of legal intoxication), medical malpractice, defective products, construction accidents, premises liability (e.g., slip and falls based on failure to provide a safe place to walk or play), or any other type of preventable injury or death.
Our law firm is made up of five partners. We have no associates or junior partners. The five partners have practiced together in this law firm for anywhere from 19 to 34 years. While we very much enjoy the company and friendship of one another, more important to our clients is the fact that each of us values our partners’ knowledge and experience in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation. We find that our partners are accessible and knowledgeable sounding boards on numerous issues that might develop in the course of representing a client or advising a prospective client. The collective knowledge and experience of our colleagues in the firm on virtually any matter that might develop in the representation of a client is an invaluable resource that we do not hesitate to use throughout the representation of our clients, from the moment they visit our office until the case is resolved.
We believe that practicing law is a privilege, and that it should be regarded as such by those of us fortunate enough to have clients who entrust their cases to us. For that reason, you will receive prompt, personal attention on your case from our attorneys and staff in the event you decide to become our client. We realize that while the law firm will have a number of clients at any one time, the client who enlists our professional services will ordinarily have but one case for us to handle. To that client, there is no other case but his or hers, and that is ever present in the mind of every lawyer and staff assistant as we undertake to fulfill our professional obligations to our clients. Accordingly, we will do whatever we can to achieve the best possible outcome for you, which is ordinarily full and fair compensation to the victim(s) of preventable injury or death, without unnecessary delays.
