What are your firm's strengths and style?

Mr. Starry is highly intelligent and well educated. But he understands the nuts and bolts too. He understands the realities of a workplace involving trucks, cranes, heavy equipment, muscle, sweat, and hard work. He believes in his clients. He will believe in you.

Mr. Starry also understands that the adversary will fight back. To achieve a good result for a client, an attorney must be a warrior, not just a counselor. Litigation is controlled warfare. Your adversary must fear losing. Only by remaining strong will you achieve a result that is fair. An attorney who settles quickly and easily is a mere claims adjuster. Willingness to meed the adversary on the battlefield is the best way to obtain true justice.

Once filed, we will work your case. We will use the best tools that the law allows to get the information, testimony and other evidence necessary to be ready for trial. Mr. Starry believes that unless a case is well prepared, the adversary will sense weakness. Any time a settlment is negotiated, it must be from a position of strength and preparedness. Therefore, we will first do our homework and then prepare your case for trial. This is how we achieve what we believe are the best results for our clients. We hope to have the opportunity to speak with you.
