We've taken the phrase "We make the complex simple" to heart because it gets to the heart of what we do as trial attorneys. Success in litigation requires parties to grapple with complicated concepts. The challenge may involve new medical technologies or advanced theories of engineering. A case may hinge on science and the ability to identify what is authentic, and what is not. Or it may involve complex business relationships, layers of insurance and reinsurance, or new rules governing workplace relations or professional responsibility.
Whatever the case, our work for clients requires us to get at the truth of these complexities, and convey it in such a way that a judge or a jury has a simple choice to make. We appreciate that juries are careful investigators of the truth, and that judges take a dim view of advocates who gloss over complexities instead of doing the hard work of distilling them to their essence. There is a critical difference between "simple" and "simplistic."
We make the complex simple in order to get at the truth of our clients' positions and convey that truth to those whose duty it is to try the facts. We do it every day on some of the most cutting-edge technical issues and convoluted concepts of causation and liability to be found. It's not the only way to practice law, but it's our way.
