Persistence pays

Being the victims of another's wrongful conduct, clients regularly are frustrated about why their cases are not resolved promptly.  The short answer is because a lawyer is necessary to make insurers and others do what they do not want to do, i.e., pay what they owe.  I recently had the experience of collecting a debt in a small case.  An abusive boyfriend was unwilling to pay for a vehicle he had "taken" from a client and we were forced to file a lawsuit, obtain a judgment, and collect on the judgment.  It has taken 13 months but every cent has been paid.  Persistence pays.  See
