The Willingham & Cote’, Approach

At Willingham & Cote’, P.C., our attorneys believe in vigorously and thoroughly investigating cases and leaving no stone unturned. Our attorneys are well versed in medical knowledge and terminology which assists in analyzing complex medical causation issues. Our attorneys also enjoy battling with opposing treating physicians and experts to obtain favorable admissions for use at trial. Once a thorough investigation has been complete, our attorneys try to obtain favorable rulings whenever possible through summary disposition motions. If that cannot be achieved then our attorneys relish a good fight at trial.
