Jim and Sharon Fitzgerald founded The Fitzgerald Law Firm with the goals of concentrating on a limited number of cases, learning and telling our clients' stories, and a willingness to go to trial when justice calls for it.
We limit our practice to cases of severe, disabling bodily injury like burns, paralysis, blindness and wrongful death so that we can focus our attention. These types of cases require utmost preparation and personal attention. Our choice allows us to concentrate on the special needs of our clients and their loved ones in personal injury and wrongful death cases, whether they arise from defective products, professional malpractice, recklessness, or careless conduct.
Based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, The Fitzgerald Law Firm has numerous advantages over large law firms. We maneuver quickly. We have decentralized decision-making. There is no chain of command. We can quickly target critical vulnerabilities in our opponent's positions. We combine those advantages with the financial resources that large law firms can bring.
We are a Wyoming law firm with a world-wide impact. We became well known as a result of our work. For example, one of our cases received international attention from the British Broadcasting Corporation and several featured mentions in Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, the Today Show and the Early Morning Show.
Companies we have battled include GlaxoSmithKline, Burlington Northern Railway, Honda Motor Company, Caterpillar Tractor Company, the University of Utah Hospital, Montgomery Elevator Company, John Deere, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Bridgestone/Firestone, Frontier Refinery, Propane companies, Federal Pacific Electric Company, General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Ridge Tool Company, Thunder Basin Coal Company and Arch Minerals.
We concentrate our resources at critical points in our clients' cases, and identify opportunities to seize the initiative. We can make quick decisions, implement plans and apply our financial resources to investigate and prove the case.
Many lawyers call themselves trial lawyers but our firm has both the expertise and resources to take high-stakes cases to trial. We decided when we established our firm more than twenty years ago that we would never back down from a meritorious case due to high costs. We understand that large and complex cases are expensive, but we are willing to fight for cases we believe in - we have never and will never let anyone crush our cases with their resources.
We work hard to represent our clients' interests in complex cases and our results are a testament to our philosophy. For us, it's not merely about the facts. It's about personal attention - to our clients and their story. We believe in personally connecting with our clients as individuals and determining why and what they need from our cases. We search for the truth and strive to achieve lasting and meaningful results for our clients.
