One of the things that always moves me as an attorney is the grace of my clients. It’s amazing how often I hear people say, “I don’t want to file a lawsuit. I’m not that type of person.” That kind of dignity makes me want to fight even harder. While the character is admirable, truth be told, filing a lawsuit is what gives you the advantage.
I believe that true negotiation can only happen when you recognize your own power — and that’s not something you have to feel bad about. After all, these insurance companies are going to fight tooth and nail to get you to settle fast and for very little. There’s nothing wrong with going after what you justly deserve.
