TRUSTED CLIENTS

Our Philosophy

At Hamilton & McInnis, LLP, we strive to achieve the best result possible for our clients. In order to achieve these results, our attorneys work in partnership with the client, informing them of the implications of each potential decision. This starts during the initial client interview. Our first step is to assess the facts of the individual case, determine the strengths and weaknesses, and ascertain the result our client seeks to achieve.

Each step within the litigation process is guided by a coordinated case management strategy and plan developed with the input of both the client and the attorney.

In pursuing our goal of client satisfaction, we seek any available method of resolving a case. Whether this be through pre-litigation settlement negotiations, alternative dispute resolution methods (such as mediation), or taking a case to trial, the attorneys at Hamilton & McInnis, LLP will pursue every available legal avenue to get our clients what they deserve.

A negligent driver ran a red light and struck the side of our client’s van causing a head trauma and fractured clavicle to our 80 year-old client.

  • What are Civil Right Cases?

    Criminal offenses and civil offenses are generally different in terms of their punishment. Criminal cases will have jail time as a potential punishment, whereas civil cases generally only result in monetary damages or orders to do or not do something. Note that a criminal case may involve both jail time and monetary punishments in the form of fines.

    A defendant in a criminal case is entitled to an attorney, and if he or she can’t afford one, the state must provide an attorney. A defendant in a civil case is not given an attorney and must pay for one, or else defend him or herself.

  • What are Criminal Defense Cases?

    Crimes in a Criminal Defense case must generally be proved “beyond a reasonable doubt”, whereas civil cases are proved by lower standards of proof such as “the preponderance of the evidence” (which essentially means that it was more likely than not that something occurred in a certain way). The difference in standards exists because civil liability is considered less blameworthy and because the punishments are less severe.

  • How do Insurance Claims Work?

    A formal request to an insurance company asking for a payment based on the terms of the insurance policy. Insurance claims are reviewed by the company for their validity and then paid out to the insured or requesting party (on behalf of the insured) once approved.
