Everyone hopes for a good settlement, and that is achieved in the vast majority of Mr. Meline’s cases. At the same time, Mr. Meline is a trial attorney. He is ready to go to court and trial anytime it will benefit his client. Many of his cases go to court because the insurance companies will attempt to ignore or under-pay any case they can. Mr. Meline's cases are not to be ignored. Every case is prepared for trial because if a case is ready to go to trial, it probably won’t have to, and a good settlement will then likely be acheived. The insurance industry’s consistent approach is to do and pay no more than what they have to. If their advantage is stripped away by a properly prepared case, they have nothing to gain, and a fair offer is forthcoming. Where the insurance company is not willing to be fair, we will be ready for trial.
There are large practices where the attorney is not personally involved in the actual representation and development of the individual’s case, and the cases are often handled by non-attorney "hearing representatives." Mr. Meline, however, personally oversees and handles each and every case and does not delegate legal decisions or appearances to non-attorneys.
Mr. Meline effectively represents clients throughout four Southern California counties, including:
