As lawyers we often change people's lives.
Usually it is because we work
hard and help them recover money for their harms and losses.
times we change their life in other ways too.
Here is one example.
A True Story
This week our office was hired for a family involved in a really bad car
wreck. Serious and catastrophic injuries.
The mother, who is in the hospital, was overwhelmed with many concerns and
worries that go along with such a tragedy.
Mary Hashemi, one of our attorneys, went to the hospital and stayed with
the client until almost midnight to provide her with comfort and assurance, as
one mother to another.
After an early morning office meeting, in which we round tabled the case
and set up the legal team; Mary return to the hospital along with Andre, a
senior paralegal and Ed Spiva our investigator.
Andre joined the Spiva law group over 10 years ago after serving as a
paralegal in the United States Marine Corps.
Ed was a police offer for 30 years before joining the law firm 15 years
Mary made sure to stop along the way to the hospital and buy our client a
frozen coffee she was craving from Starbucks.
As you might expect, after a serious car wreck the police had seized both
vehicles in order to do the investigation and to download the black boxes on the
Our client was stressed out because they were unable to get access to the
car to retrieve their child's favorite doll and the children's book bags with
books needed for school.
Ed used his knowledge, learned as a police officer, to work out with the
police department to release the children's dolls and books; even though the
cars were still held in the investigation.
Our clients are occupied with all of the problems that follows a wreck, not
being able to work, having your vehicle destroyed, medical treatment and mom
still being in the hospital.
The wreck happened in South Carolina so the vehicle remained out of state.
Because our client is in the hospital, the family had no one to go get the
children's items, Mary volunteered to drive over to South Carolina on Saturday
morning and pick up the items from the police for the family.
Mary stayed up late with a mother who was worried, brightened her morning
by bringing her coffee, volunteered her own time on a Saturday morning to drive
over and retrieve the children's personal items.
Working with such great team members is just another example of why I am so
proud to be part of the Spiva Law group super team!
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!!
