Caldwell Law Firm

Firm Overview

The Caldwell Law Firm get its genesis from the law offices of Edwin Train Caldwell, P.C., a small boutique firm that represented plaintiffs who sustained injuries to person or business. Today, the firm carries that tradition forward in its aggressive prosecution of complex personal injury and business litigation cases. Like Edwin, the lawyers at Caldwell Law Firm are dedicated to achieving the highest possible outcome for each client while handling each client's claim or dispute with compassion, integrity and attention to service.

At the Caldwell Law Firm, we understand the legal challenges people face when they seek recovery for the wrongs they have suffered. We know that, all too often, defendant companies exploit the legal system to avoid paying the compensation victims deserve and, accordingly, we use that same system to obtain the maximum legal remedy by using all tactics available under the applicable area of law to our advantage. We thoroughly investigate every case, fully examine all issues of liability, and evaluate all potential defendants before we prosecute to the full extent of the law. This approach allows us to fully achieve the best possible result for each client in negotiated settlement or trial verdicts.

We accept fewer cases so that we can give every case and every client the personal attention they deserve. Our clients appreciate the personal service they receive, as we communicate often with them to keep them informed of developments in their case. We also continue to assist our clients throughout the litigation process, including help negotiating liens, structuring settlements, and helping them work through the many obstacles they face when recovering from a serious injury to person or business.

Our best resource is the feedback from our former clients. We appreciate their referrals to our office, and the trust and confidence they have placed in us with their important interests. We look forward to earning yours as well.
