While many law firms like to list huge case results, they provide very little information to let you know their actual involvement in those cases. For example, they will refer a case out to another law firm that specializes in mass torts or nursing home cases, etc. Then, they will be named as co-counsel and will contribute very little, if any, to the case. When the case settles they will claim the large settlement or verdict as their own. Also, it is important when considering a law firm’s success on large cases, that no two cases are alike. Specific facts determine the actual value of a case. With that in mind here are just a few cases the attorneys at Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP, have handled and the results are attributable only to the hard work of just our lawyers.
