James E. Foerstner, Attorney at Law is a small private Philadelphia based firm dedicated to matters involving serious personal injury, medical malpractice and criminal defense.
Jim's professional focus during the last 20 years of his 25 years in practice has been in the representation of seriously injured people. However, he has also had the benefit of representing doctors, hospitals and others which allowed him a better understanding of the opposition and their positions. As a prosecuting attorney for 5 years and as a criminal defense attorney, he became well acquainted with the courthouse and how to try a case. Having tried over 200 cases to verdict in his career, he has not only had more courtroom experience than many attorneys, but the experience to understand both his client's case and his opponent's.
The firm maintains a deliberately small caseload in order to provide clients with the best and most personal service available. We know that managing a high volume of cases can lead to a reduction in quality. As a result, we are prepared to focus on less matters to give close personal attention to our clients. We understand that clients are dealing with circumstances that have dramatically affected their lives. We make it a priority to maintain close relationships with each client to offer the support needed throughout the difficult legal process. When you retain my firm, I will represent you through all aspects of the litigation; no one else.
Having represented hundreds of clients in over 25 years of practice, we know the rigors that personal injury and criminal defense cases involve. With the foresight born of lengthy experience, we can educate prospective clients about what to expect from the legal system and from trial. We will not accept a case unless we feel that the process will be worthwhile for the client. For those we do accept, clients can be confident that their cases will receive the diligent preparation and personal attention they deserve.
I have had the good fortune to achieve many high six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements for many clients. While clients are naturally relieved to receive an award that will relieve the financial burdens created by a wrongful death or serious injury, cases are not just about money. Most people who contact us are looking for answers; we make sure you get them. After you have suffered a serious injury due to another persons negligence, whether it is because a doctor, hospital, or someone else injured you or a loved one, you will need answers. Why did this happen and what can be done to fix my life? We will strive to give you those answers, protect you legally, restore you financially, and support you personally.
