Our number one focus. Honesty, fidelity, honor. These aren't just buzzwords; they are a code.
Prolonged litigation may mean more profit for your lawyer, but not for you. You may be absolutely confident that we will work for your best interests first, last and always.
Without the credible threat of your lawyer actually standing in front of a jury and achieving results, you can never be sure that you are resolving your risk in the most efficient and economical way. We excel in the arena where all lawsuits begin, and some must necessarily end.
There is no substitute for experience. Your lawyer can't accurately predict what a jury is going to do if he hasn't taken jury verdicts, and lots of them. Candid, timely case evaluations rather than last minute pleas for more settlement money are a part of the integrity you can expect from us.
Passion is contagious and often hard to either harness or beat. We treat your dispute as our own. We take it personally.
Your lawyer becomes the face of your company to judges, juries, opposing counsel and many other people. The Akers image brings the confidence that you have every possible advantage in all phases of litigation.
Akers learns about your business and the special concerns posed by your day to day operations. We are your counselor, participating in risk reduction strategies.
Akers creatively applies the law. We strive for greater advantage for our clients by shaping the law in the legislature and appellate courts.
Without the credible threat of your lawyer actually standing in front of a jury and achieving results, you can never be sure that you are resolving your risk in the most efficient and economical way. Akers excels in the one arena where all lawsuits begin and at times necessarily must end.
Sometimes the best way to defend and win a lawsuit is to lay the groundwork before the suit is filed, or even contemplated by an aggrieved party. That is why Akers takes a proactive approach by counseling clients on how to prevent and avoid the situations which spawn litigation. The firm offers numerous seminars for a variety of its clients, many of which are approved for continuing education credits. The firm is also available to counsel clients regarding matters such as risk-reduction strategies, employment policies, and legal issues related to business expansion plans. We are often called upon to edit or draft safety guidelines or manuals which help our clients put their best foot forward on paper.
The courtroom is a battlefield. Akers has enduring courage to carry your banner into battle when you draw a line in the sand.
