Attorney Shute’s Approach to Personal Injury Cases
Every client’s case is unique and for every case Atty. Shute develops a specialized strategy for achieving success. There are, however, two unwavering constants in the way Attorney Shute handles all of his clients’ injury claims:
A famous injury attorney, known for his many trial successes, was admired for magically “pulling a rabbit out of the hat” during a trial to win the day. When asked how he did it he said that for every rabbit he pulled out of the hat, he had 50 others waiting in reserve. In other words his key to success was preparation. He studied the evidence and law to anticipate the moves that defense lawyers might make and he developed his responses, in advance, to cover every contingency he could think of.
Following that philosophy, Attorney Shute approaches every case with the idea that thorough preparation is the key to success with injury cases just as it is in other areas of life. A well prepared case accomplishes several goals. It increases the likelihood that your case will settle for a fair amount without a trial because your opponent will recognize the risk of going to trial against a prepared opponent. If the case does not settle, then thorough preparation will serve you well in court. If your case does go to trial, it is particularly important that it be prepared thoroughly and presented honestly, in a way that respects the intelligence of the jurors, respects the time they are devoting, and gives them the information they need to honor their commitment to reach a fair verdict. Attorney Shute is committed to that goal.
Another constant with Atty. Shute’s injury cases is that when his clients have questions or when there are strategy considerations to discuss, clients speak with Atty. Shute personally and they receive legal advice from Atty. Shute personally. Atty. Shute’s office is not a “big box store” experience. You do not get passed from person to person. You come here for Atty. Shute’s personal attention to maximize your compensation, and that is what you get.
Call and ask to speak with Atty. Shute, personally, (413) 592-0999. There is no charge for your consultation and the legal fee for your case is paid out of what Atty. Shute makes the other side pay you. You never pay a legal fee out-of-pocket.
