FITZSIMMONS LAW FIRM
I see the purpose of Fitzsimmons Law Firm as to fully prepare each case for trial to get the best result for you through trial or settlement. If you are one of my clients, you have heard me say in the past: “The best way to get a great settlement is to be fully prepared and battle-ready for trial.”
To obtain fair settlements, we must continue to take cases to trial. I also believe in constant training and education to stay sharp in the courtroom. To that end, in addition to taking cases to trial, I’ve graduated in 2019 from the Keenan Trial Institute based out of Atlanta… The motto of the Institute is Amat Victoria Curam, or in English: Victory Loves Preparation. As you might guess, the motto fits well with what we are working toward at the law firm. Additionally, I am pleased that a Dean of the Keenan Trial Institute asked me to teach trial courses going forward.
To more efficiently serve our purpose, you will recognize changes here at the law firm. As you can see, our legal team includes practical paralegal, Bridget Bahnsen, and our law clerk Saje Williams. Also, we are joined by our Associate Attorney, and former prosecutor, Brooke Loftus, who brings necessary skill, intelligence, and tenacity to the team. I chose each of them for their individual skills and talents that I believe will best serve the purpose of our law firm. I am excited about this change and challenge that I believe will help us better serve our purpose and, as a result, better serve you.
