    More About Attorney Marc Lenahan

    In the decades since my first immersion into law, I've never encountered another injury law firm built the way Lenahan Law Firm is. As a matter of sheer math, our formula is the best I've ever seen or even heard of.

    To understand what I mean by that, you need to understand a dirty & ugly secret about how most injury firms work: quantity. Most injury attorneys have over 100 clients each. Yes, each lawyer. Some have 1,000 clients per lawyer. And that is a secret because even those very clients have no idea. Those firms certainly don't post that fact on their webpage, and they don't tell clients when they first meet them that their case is unlikely to get even 2 hours' worth of attorney time a year.

    Contrast that to the Lenahan Law Firm. We have less than 40 cases at a time here. Not 40 cases per lawyer, but40 cases in our entire firm. And this firm has four incredibly accomplished attorneys with extremely different skills and backgrounds: Kathleen for medicine, Wes for appellate law, Nathan for insurance defense, and me. And each one of us knows every case because we talk over every case, and the case moves from attorney to attorney depending on who fits the next battle best.

    An especially strange reality of quantity firms is that clients are frequently deceived by the number of attorneys they see on a commercial or website. They imagine that if a firm has 10 lawyers, they are hiring a 10-lawyer team. But that is just not the case. Most every firm like that has their attorneys working in isolation. They look like a team, but really they are all alone. And that is how the boss pays them, too. They get paid only on their own cases. So they never ask for help. And they don't offer it to each other, either.

    But I put my money where my mouth is. Every one of my lawyers gets paid the same as the others on every single case we close here for a client. That means that the incentive is to help each other. The better our teamwork, the better the payday.

    All of these things -- lawyers with different skills, so few cases, paying every lawyer every single time -- make for a very expensive way to run a law firm, though our fee to the clients is probably structured identically to the ones who don't do any of this. So don't look for too many firms to copy our model. But we think that there is no better way to represent each client and to secure for them the best results any firm could.
