Unlike most law firms in New Orleans and Louisiana, we do not pass along the cost of training new attorneys to the client. While it is ultimately the goal to bring on smart, curious, and hard-working law students, these young lawyers need training and not the alleged training that comes from attending law school. But, rather, the training that comes from acting as a lawyer under real-life circumstances, doing real-life work, dealing with real-life adversaries, and managing real-life clients. These are things a young lawyer can only learn from experience and the client should not have to pay for this training. The firm has a unique tier system where compensation is tied to efficiency.
Duncan & Sevin, L.L.C. recognizes that a significant portion of litigation costs are expended on needless and duplicative discovery. Some firms adopt a “shotgun” approach to the discovery process. We believes that focused discovery is not only a more cost-effective means of handling this type of litigation, but experience has shown that it often leads to quicker resolution of a case and more effective preparation for trial should trial be necessary. We believe in a partnership approach to the defense of transportation litigation, and seek to involve our clients in every aspect of the decision-making process. Our experience in the defense of the transportation industry enables us to achieve maximum benefits from the discovery process while also controlling the costs of litigation.
When a case must be tried, our clients can rest assured that Duncan & Sevin attorneys will aggressively defend and protect their interests. Our clients reap the benefits of our vast trial experience at the inception of a case, when we provide them with effective litigation strategies and with accurate opinions as to liability, settlement value and verdict potential so as to enable them to set accurate and proper reserves and to determine early on whether the case should be settled or tried.
The firm utilizes the latest and best in contemporary technology to enhance the traditional services it provides to its clients.
