We coordinate all phases of the investigation with the insured, line adjusters, industry experts, and carrier representatives to ensure specific concerns are addressed and proper communication is maintained by the parties at all times.

To control fees and facilitate litigation matters, we recognize that all matters are not the same, and we manage our time and resources with the end result in mind. The firm utilizes the latest technology allowing for instant communication with our clients about key developments in a case and ensuring their involvement in the decision-making process on issues important to them. Whenever appropriate, we delegate work to legal assistants and other support staff. In addition to our traditional staff, Kelly & Smith has a nurse practitioner and psychologist on staff to assist our attorneys with the review of medical records and jury selection.
