The Schiller McMahon Difference

If you, a close relative or loved one, were very sick and in danger of possibly dying, would you trust a doctor just because they “sounded” like they know what they’re talking about? What if that doctor who sounded convincing had never actually successfully performed the specific surgery that you or your loved one needed to live?

When people come to Schiller McMahon with their problems, they know the attorney’s here have performed the surgery—successfully—over, and over, and over again.


Knowing what to do is only half the battle. Actually doing it in an incredibly high-pressured, high-stakes situation with someone’s life on the line is an altogether different story.

Whether its a relatively minor traffic case or a homicide investigation, an automobile accident claim or a wrongful death case, Schiller McMahon treats every case like it’s the Firm’s only case.

Whether it be a civil or criminal matter, the truth is: it is the threat of the other side winning (or you losing) at trial which dictates (a) whether a case resolves; and (b) the precise circumstances under which it resolves.

Generally, the answer to these questions turns on two other questions: what is the likelihood of either side succeeding and, based on those potential outcomes, what is the likely consequence?

The answers to these questions will, and should, dictate one’s negotiation posture.
