HAPPY ANNIVERSARY RTRLAWPosted August 24, 2017 in Firm News
"Today is 29 years since the firm was established.
August 24, 1988
One computer (mostly a word processor) for my secretary, with printer = cost $5,000 (1988 dollars!)
No cell phones.
Fax machine was state of the art.
Research by law books with manual updated Shepardizing - stuck in the back of the law book.
Needed to keep that subscription up to date!
PIP with $8k deductible on $10k policy (true!).
40% fees pre-suit, 45% with suit.
No offers of judgement.
Non Joinder statute not in effect. You could name defendant in the lawsuit.
Arbitration clause in UM policies, limits offset by defendant's liability limits. No stacking.
No metal detectors at the courthouse, just walk in freely.
We have come a long way since then and are looking forward to more years to come!"
