Formed in 2010 by Dan Voelker, who has been litigating and trying cases for over 26 years and twice serving as the Co-Chair of the litigation departments of larger firms, it is the mission of the Voelker Litigation Group to provide its clients with the same high-quality legal services and legal talent offered by the largest and most prestigious firms, but at more competitive rates.Why We Win Cases Experienced Trial Lawyers
The Voelker Litigation Group is a firm of trial lawyers. We litigate every case with the goal of achieving the highest degree of success for our clients. We will not engage in prolonged and unnecessary discovery for the sake of billable hours. Every case will be assigned to a lead attorney with years of trial experience, someone who is intimately familiar with the facts of your case. When we step up to the plate, you can be assured that we will have done our homework and we will be ready to drive in the winning run.Nationwide Experience
Lawyers of the firm have litigated and tried cases all over the state and the country. We feel just as comfortable in a courtroom in California as we do in the metropolitan Chicago-area and throughout the State of Illinois. Because of his international background, our founder, Dan Voelker, has handled matters reaching all corners of the globe. Because of our extensive trial experience and financial savvy, it is not unusual for clients to ask us to step up and take over for another attorney or firm when it appears that a particular dispute will go to trial.Financial Savvy
As a Certified Public Accountant, Dan Voelker will use his financial savvy to help you identify and recover what you are owed or, as the case may be, protect you from overreaching by the other side. Dan has also used his skills and experience to locate assets and satisfy judgments in even the most challenging cases.Why We Win Clients Affordable Rates
"It could be, it might be, It is! A home run!"
-- Harry Caray
In addition to its extensive legal experience, the Voelker Litigation Group is attractive to clients for its ability to offer lower rates. How is this possible? We staff cases leanly, and we pass on the savings of our lower overhead to our clients. As a smaller firm, layers of fixed costs and support are not part of our practice. We keep our costs low to keep our legal rates low. An efficient cost-containment policy, coupled with the same high-level of experience and legal skills helps our clients better manage their legal costs. Our goal is to work within your budget and means while providing the experience to better resolve your legal problem.Alternative Fee Arrangements
With the challenges of today's economy, the Voelker Litigation Group also encourages prospective clients to consider an alternative fee arrangement. Rather than a fee based solely on hours, an alternative fee arrangement can take the form of a fixed fee, a fixed monthly retainer, a partial contingency fee or similar arrangement. Here, the firm and the client "partner" in the efficiency of the process and the ultimate outcome. The Voelker Litigation Group believes that it should be paid more when it wins, and less when it does not.Our Promise to You
Finally, while no lawyer or firm can guarantee an outcome, we promise to put our skills and experience to work to turn your legal problem into an opportunity for your success. That is our mission and we stand by it.
