Why Hire Us?
Behind every significant case, there are the emerging shadows of tragedy, change and uncertainty. As a firm, it is our quest to help the families we represent as they pass through these shadows every step of the way. We offer the requisite litigation skills to maximize a case’s recovery; that is what we do, and what we have done for so many years. Yet our services transcend legal expertise.
We care to be known as professionals who strive to make a difference in lives, whom offer the time, energy and dedication to our clients in order to attain a common goal: positive closure. Every one of our cases represents an individual story. Each veers from the others with unique concerns, circumstances and objectives. Our broad experiences have allowed us pathways of communication when working with families who’ve suffered so deeply due to birth injuries, burn cases, traumatic brain injury cases and, of course, death.
We represent the newborn, the young, the middle and the aged. We address and faithfully document the full magnitude of each client’s physical, mental and emotional injuries so that the same can be forcefully and poignantly communicated to a jury. We use our advocacy, our skills and our resources to touch the lives of others so that they, as judges, are ultimately willing and able to sense a client’s loss—what he or she has been forced to endure—and, compensate them fully. The message is at once simple and powerful: building compassion through purpose, strength and resolve; working harder, longer, and better to achieve litigation success; treating clients as individuals not commodities.; using technology with old-fashioned sense to reach the desired outcome.We Handle a Wide Variety of Cases

Every case presented to the firm is carefully screened by the partners. When a case is accepted, it is assigned to a lead attorney and a team of support staff best suited to the type of litigation in question. The diverse professional background of the firm’s lawyers and on-staff experts ensures that every case is handled by an experienced team that has worked with similar claims.
The claim is then investigated; typically in consultation with experts and private investigators. The firm’s lawyers, paralegals, and other staff members have longstanding professional relationships with investigators and expert witnesses, who play key roles in the successful resolution of personal injury, medical malpractice, and other accident-related cases.
In contrast to many personal injury attorneys who have never, or rarely, taken a case through trial, our attorneys are renowned for their skills in the courtroom. The lead attorney on each case is involved in every step of the lawsuit process, including strategic decision-making, preparation of court filings, settlement negotiations, factual, legal and medical research, pre-trial conferencing, and trial.
As a result of the meticulous attention given to each case by our lead attorneys, Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool has demonstrated a sustained rate of success in personal injury and medical malpractice lawsuits. In fact, our firm has recovered over $1 billion in compensation for our clients.
