The decision to hire a personal injury attorney is an important one, and it should not be taken lightly. In this video, attorney Kathy McArthur explains how she teaches lawyers in her firm to be fierce yet compassionate advocates for clients.
What I tell people here, the young lawyers that I try to train to be lawyers and to be fighters, and be the person who stands between our clients and big business and things that have hurt their family member, insurance companies. Is that, look, we’re human, you know we feel their pain. It’s upsetting. I get all broken up, but hearing what has happened to people, but they don’t need a friend. They’re not here looking for sympathy. They can get sympathy, they can get love, they can get people helping them by providing food and emotional support. Yes, we can help with that, but that’s not what they’re here for. They’re here for us to stand up and say: this isn’t right. And to roar on their behalf: we’re not going to let this happen without who’s responsible being held responsible. So, in that setting, yes we hear it, yes it’s hard, but I know that we can do something about it. And that we can make the responsible company, whether it’s an insurance company, or whether it’s a trucking company, or whether it’s a hospital, or whether it’s a physician or whoever it is. we can hold them responsible. We can make them change. If it’s possible to change them, we can make it not happen to somebody else and we can help these people to whatever extent it will help them both to be compensated fairly and adequately, and to know that the responsible party has been held responsible. And that’s what we do, and I want to do it for people. It doesn’t ever get old. I’m passionate about doing that work. I’ve come in every day, there of course everybody comes in every day, raring to go. But after 36 years, I can tell you, I am more passionate today about it than I had ever been.
