Atwood, Holsten, Brown & Deaver: Experienced Trial Lawyers
Atwood, Holsten, Brown & Deaver first opened its doors nearly two decades ago. Since then, we have earned a noteworthy record of success representing clients' personal injury, workers' compensation, medical malpractice, wrongful death and employment discrimination cases. We pride ourselves in exceeding client expectations, out-working our competitors, and most importantly, in helping our clients obtain full compensation for their injuries.
As a Martindale-Hubbell® "AV" Preeminent* rated law firm, we have earned national recognition for our legal ability and integrity. While we are very proud of this honor, we measure our successes by our clients' successes, one client, one victory at a time.
As our client, you can expect:
Results-oriented representation — We ensure that our clients win the best result possible under the law, in the most cost-efficient and timely manner available. Winning doesn't just happen. Winning requires setting definable goals, employing goal-oriented methods, and being driven to action by the power of enthusiasm and the desire to win. In other words, a lot of preparation, hard work, and commitment. It's not rocket science. It is good, old-fashioned, Midwestern work ethic.
Thorough research and case preparation — Our attorneys, paralegals, and professional staff thoroughly investigate and uncover every relevant piece of evidence and legal authority to support our client's case. We don't leave anything untouched. This attention to detail, organization, and preparedness allows us to avoid unnecessary, unproductive, and untimely steps that delay claims and make them less successful. We use our 70+ years of combined legal experience to guide us in "what to do" to consistently ensure success. It helps that your case won't be our first rodeo.
Strong advocacy skills — As your legal advocate, your interest is our interest. It's that simple. If you win, we win. For this reason, we are dead serious in legal representation of all our cases. Otherwise, it is a waste of everybody's time and money. For this reason, we aggressively represent our clients at all stages and specifically in depositions, pretrial and motion hearings, settlement negotiation and mediation sessions, trials, and appeals. At every stage we guide our clients step by step through the legal process toward success, as we have done for years and years.
Compassionate counsel and responsive service — We cannot actually walk a mile in our client's shoes. Therefore, we can never claim to truly understand or feel our client's pain. Nobody can. Nevertheless, we try our best to empathize with the physical pain, financial stress, emotional suffering and loss our clients frequently endure from unforeseen injuries. Attempting to truly understand another person's loss makes the process of "evidence gathering" to prove that loss a lot easier and more successful. Thorough proof of "damages sustained" is a huge part of obtaining just compensation under the law. Of course, all of this compassion requires significant communication. This means that we promptly respond to phone calls and e-mails, we keep our appointments, and we maintain flexible schedules to ensure availability when our clients need us. If you are unable to personally come to our Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska, offices due to time or mobility constraints, in most cases our work can be conducted over the Internet, by telephone, or by mail. In other instances, where necessary, we can arrange to come to your location. In other words, we aim to please. We try to treat you the way we like to be treated, and that's pretty good! We pride ourselves on unsurpassed client satisfaction.
No recovery, no fee — Attorneys can either cost you money or make you money based upon their experience, expertise and past success. Our firm represents clients who are wrongfully injured in personal injury, workers' compensation, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases, and we have done so for years. We handle these type of cases on a "contingency fee basis." A contingency fee is based only upon the recovery you obtain from your case. Generally, attorneys charge substantially similar contingency fees, but, like anything else, not all attorneys are the same. Therefore, when hiring an attorney on a contingency fee basis, your objective should be to hire absolutely the best attorney available, an attorney who will not only win your case, but will also maximize your net recovery. The best attorney is usually the one with the most experience, expertise, and success in handling your type of legal claim. We are confident you will find that our law firm falls into that "best" category concerning your case.
We hope you find our website helpful and informative. But, nothing substitutes for our free, no-obligation, in-person initial case evaluation. We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family, discuss your specific circumstances, and assist in determining your legal rights.
