Working Together to Get the Job Done Right

Posted by Craig F. Schauermann | Aug 22, 2010 | 0 Comments

Every month, the lawyers and paralegals at Schauermann, Thayer and Jacobs, P.S., meet together for an entire morning or afternoon and discuss every personal injury case that the law office is handling. Jeff Jacobs, one of the partners in the office, notes that this process makes this law office stand out from other personal injury firms:

I worked at three other law offices earlier in my career. I have never seen a personal injury firm take the time to so frequently review cases and get the input from other lawyers and staff like Schauermann, Thayer and Jacobs. The attorneys here work as a team, one that values the thoughts and ideas of the paralegals, too. Having our team all at the table to periodically review and discuss each case that we are handling is a real advantage to our clients. This team approach is different from other personal injury law firms that I have worked with. Our clients really benefit because we have several experienced lawyers and paralegals contributing ideas on each of their cases. Other offices may talk about a ‘team approach'-at Schauermann, Thayer and Jacobs it really happens.

Schauermann, Thayer and Jacobs, P.S. has been using this approach to help solve our clients' personal injury cases for decades. That is why we are recognized as being one of the best personal injury law firms around.

Conveniently located at the corner of 4th Plain Blvd. and St. Johns in Vancouver, Washington, our law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death claims for clients that want the advantage of a true ‘team approach' to their claims.
