Our case handling philosophy is simple. We investigate and evaluate cases rapidly and accurately. We attempt to resolve cases on a fair and equitable basis as soon as possible, with minimal expense to our clients. If a fair and equitable settlement cannot be reached, we are ready, willing, and able to take a verdict. We are trial lawyers, not litigators. We are not only willing to try lawsuits, we welcome the opportunity. While we cannot guarantee a win in every case, we can guarantee that our lawyers will devote their full efforts to achieve success.
We at Szilagyi & Daly are proud of the attorneys, paralegals and staff that make up our team. We demand that every member of our team achieve at the highest level. We are committed to delivering excellent work product. We regularly attend continuing legal education to ensure we provide the best advice and service to our clients. We consistently invest in technology to enable us to deliver legal services in an efficient and cost effective manner. We are committed to charging reasonable fees for our services. We are not just advocates for our clients, we are involved with our communities to improve the lives of others. We are committed to the highest standards of legal ethics and civility towards our colleagues. We do not compete with big law firms; they compete with us.
We pride ourselves on being trial lawyers, not merely litigators.
