We have consistently resolved ourselves to providing the best possible value for our clients, while conferring the greatest possible legal benefit. We continue to serve the needs of those injured as a result of all types of accidents including automobile accidents, dog bites, and defective products. Our services for personal injury are generally offered on a contingency fee basis, with the Firm advancing all costs necessary to the successful prosecution of the case. We recognize that we are not exempt from the rules of efficiency that govern our clients' other business decisions and we believe that a thorough understanding of our fee structure is the foundation of a good relationship. As a result, we are always ready to engage in a candid discussion about how we can control costs without impacting the quality of our services. An examination of our fee schedule will reveal that our rates compare quite favorably to those firms offering our caliber of work. In terms of value received, Younger & Associates is an excellent investment.
Cost effectiveness is always a major concern. We strive to advise, represent, negotiate, and litigate from a legal, economical, and practical perspective. Through our successful law and motion practice, we attempt to resolve each matter prior to the accrual of the costs and expenses associated with trial. Each case is viewed individually, based on its individual value and worth, to ensure that the legal services are in line with the value of the particular case.
Most matters are billed on a traditional hourly basis. In the case of recurring transactions for which a precedent exists, or for some of our sports clients, we will negotiate a fixed fee. Whatever billing method is used, our fees are ultimately based on value to the client and the knowledge that satisfaction will result in repeat business for the firm. Each attorney realizes that if we take special care of our clients, our financial health will follow. With these policies in place, our clients can be confident that they will receive the highest value for their legal expenditures at Younger & Associates.
The Firm also provides technical advice and assistance to clients on both a formal and informal basis, instructing on new developments in the law. Younger & Associates actively promotes seminars, instructional meetings, and educates its clients with letters and bulletins relating to issues such as arbitration procedures, trial procedures, coverage questions, jurisdictional issues, as well as new case law and statutory developments.
We are constantly recruiting lawyers of great potential who will accept the challenges of litigation and the courtroom and who are, in the tradition of the firm, determined to succeed. The attorneys, staff, and legal assistants have proven experience in the insurance industry and in employment issues.
Younger & Associates has the technical knowledge, capability, and expertise to serve its clients' interests in all aspects of each area of practice. Simply put, we are an organization of professionals who prize creativity and innovation in the practice of law, for it is these qualities coupled with our firm foundation of experience that will ensure the best results and highest level of service to you, the client.
