It takes more than knowledge of the law to defend a business against a customer’s claim. It requires investigative skills and the ability to evaluate facts and assess the client’s risk. Gaffney Lewis & Edwards provides the complete package. Our attorneys have experience defending corporations and business owners against premises liability claims, including slips, trips and falls, false imprisonment, defamation, and other personal injury and property-related claims. Our lawyers conduct a thorough investigation of the facts surrounding any claim, assess the strength of the opposing case, and evaluate the credibility of evidence so that we can recommend a course designed to best protect the client’s interests. We understand how the various jurisdictions in our State treat tort claims. Our recommendations include an analysis of the venue, giving consideration to jury trends and verdicts. As circumstances change and the case progresses, we keep the client informed about options and strategies for resolution. Every tort claim is unique: We commit the time and resources necessary to learn the details of each client’s business operation, tailoring our advice to each client and its unique situation.
