Advertising results is governed by Comment #4 to Rule 7.02 of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. The rule states that advertising which reports a lawyer’s achievements on behalf of former clients “may be misleading if presented so as to lead a reasonable person to form an unjustified expectation” of similar results.
We are proud of the results we have obtained over several decades of dedicated practice, and are happy to discuss those results with you. Most importantly, however, is the fundamental understanding that no two cases are alike. Even if the cause of the injury (i.e., motor vehicle accident) and the actual injury sustained (i.e., broken leg) are identical, the outcomes for what may appear to be similar cases can vary significantly based upon a number of different factors.
At its core, legal claims and lawsuits involve human beings, no two of whom are the same. Facts developed through the investigation and litigation of cases always vary to some degree. A specific injury to one person may have a profound effect on that person’s functional capacity, wage earning capacity, and other factors keenly personal to that individual. However, that same injury to another person may affect their life in an entirely different way.
Although a factor to consider, we do not believe you should choose a lawyer based in sole or substantial part on past results, as your claim is unlike any other. Your case is very personal to you, as it is to us, and we have represented hundreds of clients in wide variety of different types of claims. No two have ever been the same. Let us help you evaluate and understand your claim. Call us today at 214-369-9630.
