Hall Booth Smith, P.C.’s product liability defense attorneys combine subject matter expertise with first chair trial experience. We are the “go to” firm for many clients in some of the most difficult and delicate cases. Our defense experience spans mass tort actions as well as single plaintiff litigation, and our attorneys have extensive insight assessing risk and minimizing exposure. We defend claims in federal and state courts across the country, giving us intimate familiarity with decision trends and precedent-setting cases. Our defense philosophy is to be mindful of the need for cost-effective advocacy without sacrificing on quality or favorable results.
We set ourselves apart by partnering with our clients providing a case-specific approach to each litigation, rather than following a “one size fits all” approach. Along with the client, we develop an appropriate litigation strategy to aggressively defend the case and to better position the matter for trial or if preferred, mediation or settlement. With our firm’s breadth in related practice areas, we draw upon the experience of colleagues in related disciplines to assist in providing strategic investigation, analysis, and assisting in retaining industry experts. We also utilize our in-house nurse consultants to assist in investigating our cases from a medical standpoint and to assist and work with retained experts.
As a philosophy, we strongly believe in regular communication with our clients and provide frank assessments of claims as early as possible, providing regular updates throughout the litigation. We discourage case analysis that unnecessarily hedges or is not helpful in assessing risk, such as an assessment of a “50/50 chance of success.”
