Our Values

The attorneys at Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm have learned through experience that meeting the needs of their clients requires departing from the rigid structures employed by most law firms. It is with this in mind that the firm has a uniquely flexible structure and remains committed to these values:

  • Client Advocacy

    The firm’s attorneys are aggressive trial lawyers who move cases to resolution whether through trial, settlement or alternative resolution. They understand how to work within the justice system  and use its rules and procedures to their clients’ best advantage. The attorneys’ experience, tough-minded approach and reputations often enable them to assist clients in negotiating settlements without the necessity of expensive, time-consuming trials. The firm’s attorneys, however, never lose sight of the courtroom and do not shy from it when it is in their clients’ best interest.

  • Collaboration

    The firm leverages the collective expertise of its attorneys, in-house medical paralegals and extensive network of experts to serve clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 corporations. Its attorneys assign every case to experienced legal counsel and support staff, drawing as needed on teams of expert witnesses in virtually every field with whom they have developed close working relationships. The firm also utilizes its skilled in-house registered nurse paralegals to evaluate cases requiring medical expertise. This collaboration and integrated approach ensure the firm’s clients receive personal communication, accountability and effective representation.

  • Analysis and Research

    The firm’s In-house appellate attorneys thoroughly research the law and analyze the facts extensively for the preparation of every case. They provide every client with an early case analysis along with advice on likely issues, risks and probable outcomes. The team works closely with each client to develop a litigation strategy designed to achieve their client’s goals. The firm’s attorneys know that success is based on preparation, and they do not attend any hearing, conference or trial without it.

  • Value Proposition

    The firm’s success is built in part on providing clients with aggressive and effective representation  at affordable prices. Smart individual, corporate and governmental clients alike are eschewing firms with high  fees and retainers and choosing  Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm because it offers the same, and often better and more personalized, results at a fraction of the cost.
