Recovery of Lower Balance Files

Law firms focused solely on property damage often reject property files under $100,000.00. Why?

Our Property Team knows there is recovery potential on even low balance files. Recovery can come at any point in the litigation, sometimes before it begins. RG will fully evaluate all cases, weighing the costs of litigation against the potential for recovery. Though the costs of litigation may outweigh potential recovery at trial, that doesn’t mean the file must be closed.

Our Team will work the file to draw out offers that strike a balance between potential costs and actual dollars received. Because RG’s Property Team is focused not on the trial, but on your
recovery.
