Welebir | Tierney Firm Overview
San Bernardino & Redlands Accident Lawyers
We’re not afraid to go to trial to win your serious injury litigation case. When it comes to fighting for your rights after suffering an injury due to someone else’s conduct, your attorney’s experience may be the most important factor in the size of your serious injury settlement or jury award. If your lawyer isn’t ready to take your case all the way to trial, you really have to question the commitment. Many lawyers call themselves “trial lawyers.” At Welebir | Tierney, we are proud to be known in the community as “Trial Lawyers”.
No legal fees unless you win money for your injury or wrongful death claim
You should ask: “How many cases have you actually tried to verdict?” and, “Have you be awarded membership in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)?
Opposing insurance defense attorneys know that when they see our names on the personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, they have to be prepared to go to trial. We think every law firm should have our level of commitment to providing aggressive, effective representation for every client. It’s why Inland Empire Magazine recognizes our firm as being among “the lawyers that other lawyers hire” when they need representation themselves. Our firm is AV-rated,* the highest rating available under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system. When you consider hiring an attorney, do not be hesitant to ask “How many cases have you actually tried to verdict?” and “Have you been awarded membership in ABOTA?” (American Board of Trial Advocates)
