Talk with a lawyer, not a paralegal.
Your case is important. Whether it is a million dollar trucking collision case, or a $5,000 bumper tap car crash case, it has significant consequences for you, and your lawyer should represent your interests.
At John Cord Law, we specialize in the use of technology to communicate with you, to investigate your case, and to prove your case. We have the ability to forward claim documents to you by e-mail, and we access our e-mail around the clock by smartphone. In automobile accidents, for example, we will determine whether there were red light or security cameras that recorded the incident. We will investigate whether the at-fault driver was using a GPS device, or was illegally using a cell phone to talk or text. At trial, we will use aerial satellite photos of the scene of the collision to explain how it happened, and we will craft an electronic visual presentation for juries.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
Many lawyers spend their entire careers settling cases, fearful of the courtroom. John Cord did not want to be one of those lawyers who accepted low offers for his clients.
He started at a large medical malpractice and product liability law firm, but began taking on a wide variety of personal injury cases (like auto accidents) in order to gain more trial experience. He knows that each client should decide their own case--if they want to go to trial, he has the experience to take them there.
