For every 10 PI cases you have handled over the years, how many were cases where you actually helped somebody (client wouldn’t have gotten the result without a lawyer) versus how many just added attorney’s fees and medical treatment that the client probably didn’t really need or didn’t really benefit from (just more expenses in their settlement award)?

10/10. If I don’t think I can make a difference for the client, then I don’t take the case.

There are virtually no situations where an injured person is going to get any real money without a lawyer.

The client is always in charge of their own treatment, I never push clients to get treatment to inflate damages. 10/10 I help the client. I would never take a case where they could do it on their own and get the same result and save on attorney fees.

I concur. Insurance companies just shove injured unrepresented people around. They try to to do the same with the lawyers, but we know the client's rights and remedies and how to push back. I never have a client do treatment that doesn't seem necessary.

Your only job is to make or save your client money. You don’t feed them to doctors and force a bad case to expensive experts and soak up all their portion of the case to earn your fee. Not sure where your question is coming from but I’m thinking it might be insurance defense where you’re unhappy the plaintiff got a lot of sophisticated medical treatment that you felt is unnecessary. The best cases don’t need big number medical bills anyway, at least not for the recovery of damages from those bills.

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
