ZEALOUS ADVOCACY FOR OUR CLIENTS AT EVERY STAGE

As your advocates in any kind of northeastern Pennsylvania personal injury civil suit, whether it involves a motor vehicle accident, a trucking accident, a trip or slip and fall event, a products liability case, or a medical malpractice claim, we will represent our clients' interests through every stage of the case, which may include:

  • Investigation
  • Pleadings
  • Discovery
  • Depositions
  • Pre-trial proceedings
  • Court conferences
  • Settlement or trial
  • Appeal

Most lawsuits don’t involve all of these stages but can still last several years. We do what we can to push our cases forward in the most prompt and efficient manner possible. Most civil litigation matters are settled before ever reaching trial. We will work towards a favorable settlement but, if the other side is not negotiating in a reasonable or fair fashion, we will not hesitate to take the case to a jury trial with your approval. Our professional courtroom demeanor and meticulous preparation of our cases give us an edge as an assertive, strategic advocate on your behalf.

HELPING BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS SUCCESSFULLY RESOLVE INJURY CLAIMS

Cummins Law is one of Pennsylvania’s premier civil litigation defense firms. We are a broad-based civil litigation defense practice, enabling our lawyers to vigorously defend clients in all areas of personal injury litigation.


ALLOW OUR RESPECTED DEFENSE ATTORNEYS TO WORK FOR YOU

The best way to deal with civil litigation is to establish a relationship with a law firm that plaintiff's law firms respect as formidable opponents. If you or your company or your insured is facing a lawsuit, we provide a thorough defense at every step of the way. We will push the case to arrive at the best possible negotiated solution. If that is not possible, we will take the case to trial and present your defense to the jury in a straightforward yet compelling fashion.

Our attorneys focus on litigating your matter in the most economically efficient way possible. We have lower hourly rates than our competitors. We do not impose billable hour quotas on our attorneys like other firms - we simply focus on doing what needs to be done to further your defense. In every case, we complete a prompt investigation and continually assess our client's exposure. Based upon our years of experience, we will come up with a decisive and aggressive defense strategy without losing sight of the goal of controlling the cost of claims.
