The Law Office of Tara Lillis has recovered millions of dollars for her clients for their pain and suffering, permanency of injuries, and loss of earnings as a result of injuries suffered in accidents. We provide thorough case preparation including but not limited to investigation, consulting with physician and economic experts, client and witness interviews, legal and medical research, drafting pleadings, writing and arguing motions, conducting plaintiffs’ and defendants’ examinations before trial, attending court appearances and trial preparation.
Ms. Lillis is well known for her thorough preparation of clients for their pre-trial depositions. She recognizes that each client has different needs and devotes as much time as is necessary so that they are comfortable, well informed, and ready when questioned by defense attorneys. Ms. Lillis employs the same dedication when questioning adverse witnesses, including defendant physicians at their depositions.
Her attributes as an experienced and talented personal injury attorney, however, are not limited to her legal skills and knowledge. Ms. Lillis is also a registered nurse, and therefore has a distinct advantage of understanding the medical aspects of each case.
Ms. Lillis is recognized by her clients for being compassionate and supportive. Her sensitivity to and empathy for her clients and their families has made the often times stressful situation an easier one to bear. Ms. Lillis’ ability to communicate with her clients and address their concerns provides a constant source of comfort and security upon which they have come to rely. Along with the loss of a loved one, or life altering injuries, there are inevitable lifestyle changes that most people never contemplated and are emotionally unprepared for. In addition to being their zealous advocate, Ms. Lillis sees it as her representative responsibility to treat her clients with respect and dignity and to utilize all her knowledge and resources to assist them with a variety of consequential issues they may encounter.
