Clients, Colleagues and Friends,
The Veen Firm is proud of our track record in representing the catastrophically injured. But we realize that our win-loss record is not the true measure of our success. We know that at the heart of each case is a real human person, a real family. They are going through what stands to be the most traumatic event of their lives, be it a life-changing injury or the death of a loved one. We strive to keep that in mind throughout the challenging litigation process. Our team-based approach to cases provides us with methods to address the myriad of difficulties faced by our clients before, during, and after litigation.
The Practice Notes article Ten Ways to Help Your Client Through Trying Times, highlights our commitment to a holistic approach to meeting clients’ needs and provides some suggestions for ways to help people through the process.
All the best,
The attorneys and staff at The Veen Firm, PC
