Value, Not Volume

Some refer to firms like ours as "boutique"; others say "we specialize" in a certain area of the law. The Law Society of British Columbia prohibits lawyers from advertising that they specialize, which implies a higher level of education or training. They do permit lawyers to say that their practice is focused or limited to a specific area of the law. The lawyers at our firm, Cross Border Law Corporation, are licensed to practice in both United States and Canada, which is unique, in and of itself.

But what truly sets us apart from other personal injury boutique firms is ourcommitment to Value, not Volume. Ask a personal injury lawyer how many files he's currently handling. Is it 125? Is it 200 or more? So characterizes a "Volume" practice-sign up clients, the more the merrier; have a paralegal or non-paralegal "litigation manager" primarily responsible for the file; focus on settling-as quickly as possible-for whatever sum can be achieved with modest effort; next case.

At Cross Border Law, we currently have about 60 open litigation files-between two lawyers. We give each file our individualized attention, and discuss the issues arising from the case with each other. We hire medical, occupational and financial experts in both Canada and the U.S. who are accustomed to testifying in court, and we prepare each case to go to trial. Of course, 95% of all civil cases settle out of court, but we generally settle our cases for their true value. Because we're prepared for trial, and have a reputation for going to court regularly, we're able to achieve settlement for full value; otherwise, we go to court or arbitration and ask the judge or jury to award our client that value.

We believe that a trial-centered approach makes sense in theory and in practice, with a proven track record of verdicts and settlements that bear this out. If you're considering the prospect of hiring a lawyer we invite you to find out who we are and what we've done for our clients.
