The "Away Games" in Mass Tort Litigation
Many highly successful plaintiff lawyers develop practices that often require no more travel than it takes from their office or the closest jurisdictional courthouse. However, with law firms such as our own, that have sought to fight injustice at the highest corporate echelons across the country and succeeded, the reality of having to fight malfeasance on the enemies “home turf” often becomes a reality. As this office prepares to wage a passionate and righteous war against one of the largest insurance companies in the country, our lawyers are getting emotionally prepared to live out of suitcases and hotel rooms for several months in anticipation of a case we all feel extremely passionate about. The thought of being away from home for significant periods of time is at once daunting and also exciting. This type of travel can be taxing, but can also be more stimulating than running back and forth to district and circuit court, day in and day out for years. One is obviously no better than the other, but we chosen to “go to the fight” in some cases whether it requires extensive travel and the sacrifice of “home” or not. For the time being, there is a buzz in the air that maybe be similar to playing a championship game on your opponents “home field”, an “away game”. Either way, we are getting psyched and fired up as preparations are being made to bring justice to a large group of undeserving victims of corporate injustice, racism and corruption in another state. Let the games begin!
