Portner & Shure litigates large personal injury cases for lawyers who do not have the experience and/or resources to handle complex personal injury cases. Insurance companies now use the Colossus system when evaluating the amount they pay on claims. One factor in their equation is whether the law firm they are up against litigates cases. If your firm does not the claim will not be offered fair value.
At Portner & Shure we have injury lawyers who have litigated hundreds of jury trials and judge trials throughout most jurisdictions in Maryland and Virginia. In fact, Mr. Portner is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Mr. Ruby has also obtained million dollar verdicts in injury cases.
If you refer a case to our firm you can remain in the case and therefore still collect a fee. Very few personal injury attorneys have the experience our lawyers have in litigating wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases. In our experience, top value is often not given until we put our larger cases in suit. Hence, if you have a serious injury case, our advice is not the settle the case prior to litigation. In fact, if you add the additional compensation you obtain after placing a case in suit, and then for adding a well known litigation firm on the file, it really makes sense to refer the large injury cases to Portner & Shure. Therefore, if you are an attorney with a serious personal injury case, call or contact our law firm.
