I’m Kurt Arbuckle, an attorney here in Houston, and this is the fourth in my series of videos on my 6 principles of client representation. In this video, I want to talk about my fourth principle, advocacy. An advocacy has two parts. The first part is that we don’t give up and we don’t give in. We present your side and we don’t stop until we get the result that’s the absolute best result we could get for you. And what that means is taking things to the end of the line, not dumping you in the middle, not making you settle for less than you can get on the case if it’s a claim you’re trying to get money on. That’s what we do. We don’t give up, we don’t give in. We go all the way with you.
The second part is presenting your side of the case in a way that shows that you were the competent and responsible party in the transaction that gave rise to whatever we’re talking about. If it’s a matter of driving, you were driving safely, you were paying attention. We present your side so that you can’t be pushed around by someone else on the other side, trying to say that something was your fault when it was not. We don’t give up, we don’t give in, we present you as the competent, responsible person that you are.
