Attorney Shute approaches each case with the idea that thorough preparation is the key to success with injury cases just as it is in many other areas of life. A well prepared case accomplishes several goals. It increases the likelihood that your case will settle for a fair amount without a trial because your opponent will recognize the risk of going to trial. If the case does not settle, then thorough preparation will serve you well in court. If your case does go to trial, it is particularly important that it be prepared thoroughly and presented honestly, in a way that respects the intelligence of the jurors and respects the commitment that the jurors make to reach a fair verdict. Attorney Shute is committed to that goal.

“Trial by jury is part of the bright constellation
which leads to peace, liberty and safety.”

Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President, 1801
