Somebody has to look out for the little guy

When you agree to be a guest on a talk radio show, you never know what you’re going to be asked. But when you agree to be a guest on a show where injury lawyers get smacked around now and again, you really never know what you’re going to be asked.

Last Saturday I was a guest on Emil Franzi’s “Inside Track” radio show on KVOI. Emil has been a conservative operator, columnist, commentator and talk show host in Pima County for more than 30 years.

His guest host Saturday was Shaun McCklusky, a small business owner and conservative activist.

Not surprisingly, they started off the show a little skeptical about personal injury lawyers.

But you know what? I had a great time on the show, Emil and Shaun were more than fair with me and I think I got them to think a little differently about injury lawyers and the role we play in society.

The fact is, accidents happen and people get hurt. A lot of the time, everyone, including the victim, is treated fairly …. However, sometimes they’re not.

Yet if insurance companies have legal representation, if government agencies have legal representation, and if corporations have legal representation, then why shouldn’t individuals who were hurt in the accident have legal representation?

As I told Emil and Shaun, in my practice, and with most of the trial attorneys I know, it’s our job to represent the clients and get them a fair shake in the system and get them a fair resolution.

I think Emil and Shaun agreed with that.

Anyway, I thank Emil for the opportunity. I had a good time and would love to do it again.
