Franke Schultz & Mullen, P.C. enjoys the distinct privilege of representing a growing and diverse family of clients including numerous insurance companies and their insureds, self-insured retailers, family-owned corporations to fortune 500 companies, municipalities, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, restaurants, common carriers, product manufacturers and suppliers, and other professionals ranging from general contractors and architects to doctors and lawyers.
We offer an aggressive, practical and cost-efficient approach to our clients’ matters. We are committed to providing exceptional legal services in all facets of civil litigation, but what sets us apart is the fact that our lawyers are dedicated to resolving cases through jury trials. The partners in the firm have collectively tried over 400 jury trials. While the lawyers in our firm are committed to taking cases to trial, we recognize that the vast majority of cases settle prior to trial. To that end, at the outset of each case, we develop a case specific litigation plan that outlines the key issues and factual disputes and identifies the most cost-efficient and effective strategy for resolving the case. Whether the goal is early resolution or to aggressively protect our clients’ interest through trial, our firm is qualified to provide the exceptional legal services and attention each matter deserves, all while keeping our clients closely informed.
To ensure that the services our firm provides exceed the expectations of our clients, our partners do not merely manage the work of others, but are pro-actively involved in every case. Our partners’ direct involvement in each case ensures that the work on every case will exceed the standard of excellence our clients have come to expect. We view every client as a client of the firm, not of an individual lawyer, encouraging each lawyer to reach out to the other lawyers in the firm with the necessary expertise to meet each client’s needs, thereby drawing on the exceptional talents and varied experiences of all of our lawyers. The reward to this team approach is loyal clients who recognize the difference that results from our dedication.
Our attorneys have earned the respect of fellow attorneys, judges and clients. Since its inception, the firm has continually been selected for inclusion in Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys and has maintained the highest national rating of “AV” for both legal ability and ethical standards by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, the nationwide rating service for attorneys and law firms. As a further indication of the caliber of legal services we provide, our firm has been classified as a “Recommended Law Firm” by BTI Consulting Group. The firm’s inclusion among the “Best at Client Services,” “Best at Keeping Clients Informed,” and “Best Performing Law Firms” serves as a testament to our commitment to client service.
