Paul aims to guide his clients through what is a very difficult time in their lives and help them to recover as quickly as possible by securing whatever rehabilitation they need. Paul will ensure that once his clients have recovered or received all of the rehabilitation, treatment and assistance that is possible, that he negotiates the best settlement that is available for his clients.
If the defendants do not accept responsibility then Paul will consider the evidence with his clients and explain clearly what the next steps are. This may involve commencing court proceedings and attending a trial so that a judge can determine the claim. Paul will ensure that his clients are fully aware of what this process involves and are supported every step of the way.
