Exclusive, Focused Representation
The partners at Pollard | Bailey have both held 10+ year tenures at large, top-level plaintiff’s law firms. The business model at that firm, like most large firms, was that of a “mill” — It was simply about filing as many cases as possible, assign filed-cases to associates, and confront all problems a case might have during the litigation itself. This entire approach results in very poor representation to the client. We set out and formed Pollard | Bailey in 2010 to take a completely different approach.
Knowledgeable, Experienced Advocacy
First, we have purposely kept our firm small, with partner-level attorneys working every aspect of the case, including conducting legal research, discovery and all phases of motion and trial practice. We do not leave these tasks to inexperienced associates, which is typical at large firms, as a case can be lost by failing to locate a single legal opinion or identify a single factual or legal
Selective in our cases
Second, we do not take every case that comes through the door, as taking on an unwinnable case adversely impacts all clients by sapping a firm’s limited resources. We examine prospective cases thoroughly at the very outset for potential pitfalls, which is essential to navigating the case around problematic issues once a lawsuit is filed, increasing the client’s probability of success.
