Will I speak directly with an attorney?

The Akin Law Group is a boutique firm whose attorneys provide aggressive legal representation and personal attention to each client. When you call the Akin Law Group you will speak directly with the attorney assigned to your case (not just with a paralegal or legal assistant), who is sensitive to your needs and will provide the privacy, discretion and compassion you deserve. Our attorneys will get to know you and all the intricacies of your case on a personal level. Although we will attempt to settle your case expeditiously (and at times, without having to resort to litigation) we treat each case as if that was the only case we had and prepare it as if we were headed for trial.  When defendants see that your case has been prepared for trial, they will understand how serious the matter is and offer you the recovery that you deserve.  and, if your employer is unwilling to offer you just compensation for your loss, we will aggressively litigate your case and seek the just resolution you deserve at Court.
