The Thursday edition of “Closer Look,” Darl Champion Darl Champion, a personal injuries and wrongful-death attorney from The Champion Firm, rebuts recent accusations about the field of personal injury created by the startup Mighty Law.
This week, Mighty Law CEO and founder Joshua Schwadron criticized “billboard lawyers” as well as large personal injury firms over pricing slashing and insufficient transparency with customers. According to Champion who claimed that Mighty is operating at a greater pricing than some companies, even though they are the fact that they claim not to do so These narratives create an untrue picture of personal injury attorneys and have prompted anger within the field.
These claims made by Mighty create a hazy conflation between costs and the worth of legal services, as per Champion who described the company as an “settlement mill company.”
“You require a lawyer that negotiates a settlement with you within the shadow of the courthouse, not the dark of an office … Which lawyer is likely be more influential in the end? Someone who is aware there’s an local Georgia lawyer who has trials experience and who is prepared to take the case to court in case there’s a dispute over an acceptable settlement or who is in a conference room located in Connecticut?” Champion said. “If you’re dealing with an attorney that … has the knowledge to evaluate cases properly and will advocate for you and take the necessary steps for you, you’ll have a better outcome as opposed to a settlement mill who is just shuffles documents around.”
