Not all attorneys are prepared to tackle the complexities of mesothelioma cases. These cases require a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who can help clients navigate a complicated and often emotional legal process. Some of the factors that make Attorney Throneberry stand out from the competition include the following:
- Easy to understand. Unlike other mesothelioma lawyers, Attorney Throneberry makes certain that each client understands what to expect from the legal process. Instead of offering exaggerated promises, Attorney Throneberry focuses on providing clients with a clear and accurate information to best manage expectations.
- No Fees Unless We Win. Attorney Throneberry charges only contingency fees, which means that he receives a percentage of your claim, but only if your lawsuit is successful. This means that you will not be required to pay if you do not receive compensation.
- Experience. Attorney Throneberry has an in-depth knowledge of mesothelioma cases. He is familiar with most of the industries and companies where workers throughout the country have been exposed to asbestos. Attorney Throneberry also understands what types of positions are most likely to have experienced in asbestos exposure. He understands which cases are most likely winnable and can identify the challenges that are likely to arise in a case as well as determine what strategies will be helpful to overcome them.
- Punctuality. Even though lawyers have very busy schedules, Attorney Throneberry understands just how important deadlines are and will ensure that your case proceeds accordingly and all your paperwork is filed on time.
- Honesty. Some attorneys promise certain results from a case. While attorney Throneberry has significant experience helping mesothelioma victims achieve compensation, he understands that nothing is ever certain in how a case will resolve. Instead, Attorney Throneberry will explain what steps to take to increase your chances of achieving compensation without making false promises.
