At the law office of Chris Villemarette, we attend to each case with the same detail and diligence regardless of the size of the case. I am the only attorney who will be representing my clients. I do not delegate the legal advocacy of my clients to other lawyers. When you hire me, you get me.
If you are looking for an attorney just to settle your case quickly without regard for anything else, then I am not your guy. I welcome a settlement, but under my client’s terms. My goal is to maximize your recovery. Often that requires turning down what the insurance company decides it will pay, and using my experience and skill to let the judge or the jury tell the insurance company what the award will be.
