C Justice Served The attorneys will provide informed advice to the client with regard to the best possible outcome of their unique situation, and they will do everything in their power to achieve it. Indeed, they have secured many favourable results for clients, the whole time taking into account their tolerance for risk and need for closure. Carol and Sara have been very effective in representing defendants as well as plaintiffs. The overwhelming majority of The Gillam Law Firm’s plaintiff clients are satisfied with the settlement amount obtained on their behalf. Contributing to such results are factors including the strength of the evidence in the client’s case, their performance at their disposition, the financial resource of their employer, whether or not their employer has insurance that covers the litigation, their willingness to take the case to trial, and the number and quality of witnesses that will support the allegations being made against their former employer. In addition to any monetary compensation the client may receive, they may also benefit from the feeling that justice was served, that changes will be made at their current or former employer, and that they can now move on with their life.
