A catastrophic injury does more than cause harm, it changes lives; for the victim and their families. Our clients come from various walks of life, with differing backgrounds and distinct experiences. Despite this they have one thing in common: a preventable injury turned their world upside down.
Shouldn’t someone be held accountable?
We Get Answers
At the Newsome | Melton Law Firm of Orlando, we don’t just try cases, we get answers. We know — all law firms do that; however, it’s not that simple. This is because most firms are built around high-volume practices. This means they take on hundreds of cases hoping to settle each as quickly as possible. For a lot of clients, especially those with relatively minor injuries, this may be good enough.
We Are Committed to Complex Cases
For those who have suffered serious damages a high-volume law firm won’t cut it. Their cases are often complex, pitting them against large companies that can afford top-flight legal talent to defend them.
Serious cases are expensive to try, requiring expert testimony, detailed investigations, and enormous amounts of preparation, determination, and commitment. They demand resources most high-volume firms just can’t — and won’t — muster. The result: the most crucial issues and questions can go unanswered.
We Choose Our Cases Carefully
At Newsome | Melton Law Firm of Orlando, we don’t let that happen. By carefully choosing our cases – trying just a handful at any given time – we’re able to give every matter the resources it needs. This strategy has proven hugely successful over the years. We’ve built a reputation for litigating the hardest cases against the most powerful defendants.
We’ve obtained dozens of million-dollar verdicts and settlements, but more importantly, we’ve changed the behavior of large corporations and made consumers safer.
Other firms tout their recoveries, but we’re most proud of our discoveries — exposing dangerous products and getting them off the market. The discoveries we’ve made while trying our cases have resulted in the recall of millions of defective products.
Been There, Done That
The cases we handle are complicated and highly technical. We’ve stood up against powerful, deep-pocketed opponents that can give any trial lawyer a good workout. We’ve been able to beat back the challenge because we bring two key advantages to the table.
First, we’ve mastered the nuanced, often tricky areas of law our work involves; and second, we understand how our opponents think.
That’s because we’ve been in their shoes.
Our Competitive Advantage
Earlier in their careers, our attorneys represented companies similar to the ones we go up against today: major automobile manufacturers and top-tier health providers.
While working for those companies our attorneys learned the strategies, tactics, and diversions the best defense lawyers rely on — and how to overcome them. Back then, their experience was eye-opening. Today, it’s a competitive advantage. All of our attorneys decided that their dedication and talents could be better served helping the victims of catastrophic accidents.
This competitive advantage allows Newsome | Melton Law Firm to not only understand our cases but the thinking and strategies of our opponents, and that’s an edge we leverage every day.
