Boyd & Jenerette’s Philosophy: Strive for Early Resolution but Prepare for Trial
The firm’s philosophy is to pursue a favorable resolution for every case, as early as possible and without further litigation. However, if early and favorable resolution is not possible, we will be prepared for trial. Many clients look to Boyd & Jenerette for trial representation after losing confidence in counsel from another law firm originally assigned to a case.
The attorneys at Boyd & Jenerette are not only experienced litigators, but we are trial attorneys. Our partners have significant trial experience. We are skilled in jury trials, bench trials and arbitration. We employ a proven methodology for trial preparation that is efficient and consistent with client expectations and budgetary goals. Moreover, our appellate department provides valuable insight and assistance so that substantive issues are properly preserved for appellate review. It can also handle any matter that may be appealed.
We practice in all state, federal, appellate, and workers’ compensation courts with offices in Florida and Georgia. Other state admissions include Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Wisconsin, as well as the District of Columbia. Our list of representative cases demonstrates favorable outcomes in areas ranging from appellate practice to construction, auto liability, contract disputes, insurance defense, coverage and bad faith, premises liability, products liability, and workers’ compensation.
