“It’s not about doing just what the client wants. It’s about educating clients up front so they can better decide what they want.”
Eric T. Stahl joined the Law Offices of Frank L. Branson in 2005, bringing an extensive background in commercial litigation, including cases involving intellectual property and fiduciary duties. He now focuses his practice on assisting clients in matters involving corporate liability, complex business litigation, and personal injury.
“My overriding goal is to make sure that the people who hire me get everything they’re entitled to under the law,” says Stahl. “It’s critical for an attorney to be financially and intellectually capable to deal with whatever obstacles the opposing team of lawyers may erect. That often means being prepared for any eventuality and making sure that defendants with deep pockets cannot overpower the little guys in a court of law.”
Stahl is also prepared to help his clients understand how the legal system works. He says that most people know they have certain rights, but they don’t always know how to apply the facts of their position to accomplish their goals in resolving a legal claim.
“Lawyers need to be able to bridge the gap between clients’ hopes and what the legal system allows,” says Stahl. “It’s not about doing just what the clients want. It’s about educating clients up front so they can better decide what they want.”
