David E. Wilson
Each client deserves a thorough assessment of their particular problem or issue, and a focused plan of action to expedite resolution.
I strongly believe in a team approach for every case, emphasizing resources at the disposal of the client, as well as within our firm. A team approach consistently yields a greater development of options available to secure a positive outcome. Moreover, by closely involving clients in the development of options and strategies, we are able to ensure that we are at all times proceeding in accordance with the client’s objectives and goals, particularly those objectives and goals concerning cost containment.
With more than three decades of legal practice, I offer clients considerable experience and insight into workers’ compensation matters and strategy development for effective claim resolution. I am grateful for the relationships and trust earned over this time period, and look forward to sharing my experience with and forging value-added relationships with new clients.
