Some Spanish spoken here--not fluent but usually adequate if my client speaks even a little English
I have been representing the people in the North Bay community for more than 30 years. I have defended them against criminal charges when necessary, fought for them against the big insurance companies when they have been injured, and fought for their families when they have been killed in a tragic accident. Through it all I have never lost sight of the importance of taking care of the common man, our brothers, sisters, and neighbors.
I have more than thirty years experience and have represented hundreds of clients and families in all types of cases during that period of time. I treat my clients with respect, give them good honest legal advice, and represent them like theirs is the most important case in the world, because it is.
At the Law Offices of Kevin McConnell, our Clients come first:
CLIENT BILL OF RIGHTS
LOYALTY--you have the right to our complete loyalty to you and your case. We are on your side and we are committed to place your interests first even ahead of our own.
RESPECT--you have the right to our respect. We treat every client the way we would want to be treated.
COMMUNICATION--you have the right to be updated regularly on the progress of your case. We strive to have regular contact with our clients and to make clear when some action is required from the client.
COMPETENCE--you have the right to expect and receive a high level of competence from our firm and everyone who works here.
TRUTH--you have the right know the truth about your case. We strongly believe in speaking the truth with our clients and we never sugar-coat the truth. You are entitled to know the good and the bad about your case and to be empowered to make informed decisions that are best for you and your family.
ATTENTION--you have the right to prompt and courteous attention from our office. We are absolutely committed to being responsive to our clients; it is our practice to return all client calls the same day if possible, within one business day in every case. We are committed to the same level of service in responding to your e-mail inquiry.
PLAIN SPEAKING--you have the right to your legal rights and options explained in plain language without legal mumbo jumbo. It is our job to know the law and to explain it to you in plain language to help you understand all of your options.
FAIR FEES--you have the right to a fair, written fee agreement with our firm. We review the terms of our fee agreement with you at the beginning of our relationship. If you have any questions or concerns about our fee agreement at any time, we want to know about it.
VALUE--you have the right to have a fair attorney fee for the work we do. We are proud of the work we perform for our clients and work hard to insure that you get good value for the money.
YOU ARE THE DECISION MAKER--you have the right to make the ultimate decisions on your case. It is our job to provide you access to the legal system and to represent you zealously at all times. We will never accept or reject an offer, or make any other major decision regarding your case, without your approval. We never forget that we are working for you and not the other way around.
At the Law Offices of Kevin McConnell mediation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods are used in almost every personal injury claim that we handle. Our job is to recover money for our client, as much as we can get and as soon as it can be gotten, plain and simple. Mediation is one of the many tools that we rely on to bring these cases home and get our clients taken care of. Mediation affords the client an opportunity to resolve their case with satisfaction and dignity without the expense, delay, inconvenience, and uncertainty involved in a trial. Not every case is right for trial. We are ready willing and even anxious to put a case before a jury when appropriate but we never lose sight of the mission of getting these cases resolved, and our clients paid, as soon as possible.
