What To Do: Other Law Firms Won’t Take My Case

What to do when others will not represent me? Call Held & Hines, LLP

Our client, was a college student, who was injured in a club sport activity at school. The student inquired a number of law firms to represent him in a suit against his school. Nearly every law firm rejected my case believing I assumed the risk by participating in the club sport.

Held & Hines LLP appreciated what the student went thru, believed that the school should be held responsible for the student’s injuries and felt that the school should have taken steps to avoid the students’ injuries. Held & Hines LLP decided to take the case and represent the student.

Held & Hines, LLP is not adverse to representing plaintiffs when other law firms would not as even plaintiffs with difficult cases deserve competent legal representation.
