Gilde Law Firm unabashedly supports the 7th Amendment of the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees your right to civil redress in a court of law. Tort Reformers and the lobbyists of big business have been successful in convincing many in the American public that there is something wrong with being a “plaintiff” in a civil suit. In fact, many of Gilde Law Firm’s initial meetings with potential clients often begin with the client saying, “I’m not the type of person that sues, but …”. This sentiment reaffirms the improper stigma created by big business. This sentiment is destructive at the beginning stage in shaping the decision whether to seek justice and file suit and is destructive at the end stage when faced with a jury that shares the sentiment. Gilde Law Firm seeks to change that sentiment – the stigma of suing – one client and one case at a time. Gilde Law Firm believes that the courtroom is the one place in our country where an individual can stand on equal ground with a large corporation.
Gilde Law Firm believes that you should NOT be a victim – that you should not be further victimized by indecision and delay because of the improper stigma placed on seeking justice, which stigma was likely pushed and paid-for by the very entity that caused you or a loved one harm in the first place. Whether you decide to sue is a question that only you get to answer – not your lawyer. However, you may not know whether anyone is to blame for the incident, whether the incident could have been avoided, whether you have any claims as a result of the incident, etc. These are important questions and issues that you should discuss with a lawyer, which questions sometimes may only be answered by taking legal action. If you want to discover the truth, want to answer the question: “Why did this happen?”, want to stand for justice, and don’t want to be a victim, we support your decision. At Gilde Law Firm, We Believe, We Fight, and We Win for you. We sue because, often times, suing is the only way to seek justice for our clients. The 7th Amendment is your right, if you choose to exercise it. Contact Gilde Law Firm today.
