At Abrams Landau Ltd. we get a large number of calls from people who have been injured and want Doug Landau’s representation in court. Sometimes we must decline and it disappoints the injured party. We would like to be able to help everyone, but that is impossible. Therefore, we have certain parameters that must be met in order for our office to take your case.
Let’s face facts. Going to court is an expensive enterprise, and you receive no money unless we are successful. Generally, we invest in our cases by “fronting” case costs– as a result, when Mr. Landau invests in your case, he takes a risk. When we represent people who are hurt by someone else or at work, we often pay the filing fees and the expert witnesses. We order and pay for medical records and reports. These reports can cost hundreds of dollars. We front the funds for depositions and transcripts, investigations and services. These costs are much higher. Experts may charge hundreds of dollars per hour of work, depositions, and trials. Mr. Landau invests his time and the time of his employees in working up your file. We invest a great deal of our time and money in your case.
We don’t get paid for our time unless we collect on your behalf.
For these reasons, Mr. Landau can only help you if he feels he can succeed. A case must be potentially valuable enough for our office to be reimbursed all of these expenses, for Mr. Landau to be paid his contingency fee on the monies collected, and of course, for you to come away with the remaining collected funds.
We only accept cases when we think we can recover enough money to help you to recover, or at least to move forward. An attorney who takes any case that comes along is NOT the attorney you want helping you. You want an attorney who files suit when it’s time. You want an attorney who is willing to invest in your case. That’s what we do at Abrams Landau.
