Attorney David Cole returns all telephone calls within 24 hours, and most calls almost immediately. All correspondence generated from or received by this office is automatically sent to each client the day received, even before it is seen by Attorney Cole. Each client also receives a monthly report that details the work the firm has done on the client’s case in the previous month.
The firm’s practice focuses on the representation of injured parties in New Hampshire and Vermont. These cases are accepted on a contingent fee basis (the firm takes a percentage of the recovery and the client does not pay the legal fee until the conclusion of the case, and only then if there is a recovery). In each case, as soon as the client has reached a medical endpoint (maximum medical improvement), the firm prepares a detailed settlement proposal. After the client approves this proposal it is sent to the wrongdoer’s insurance company. This proposal includes all medical records and medical bills, police reports, photographs, witness statements, and other relevant information. We have learned through experience that one of our carefully crafted settlement proposals effectively presents our client’s case, and almost always results in an extremely favorable settlement without the case needing to proceed to litigation.
Our Hanover law firm also regularly represents clients with other business or civil disputes. The firm has significant experience representing homeowners or contractors involved in construction disputes. The firm also represents a number of banks, finance companies, and other businesses involved in collection activities, contract disputes, or business issues, including the incorporation of new business entities.
