In 1989, Attorney Wing left a partnership in a medium-sized law firm to establish this practice, where one attorney is responsible for each matter from start to finish.
Lawyers who prepare with the expectation that a case will settle put their clients at a disadvantage. Complete preparation assures the best presentation of evidence at trial and increases the likelihood that the opposition will agree to a favorable settlement to avoid trial.
It has become the standard of practice at the Law Offices of James C. Wing, Jr., to work hard to always be prepared.
