If You Are Facing A Jury Trial, You Must Choose Your Law Firm Wisely

Choosing a law firm can be overwhelming, especially when you are bombarded with a lot of unfamiliar terms and information. At France Litigation Group, we speak plainly and honestly so that you are always fully aware of your options. In fact, we have even redirected clients to free resources and to other attorneys when we felt we weren’t the best fit for their particular circumstances. The simple truth is that we care more about getting you the help you need than taking on every client we can get.

A Practice Founded On
Long – Term Relationships

Since we began our practice, we have forged lasting relationships with clients and counselors alike. The majority of our cases come from repeat business and attorney referrals. When asked why they enjoy working with our team, clients often describe the firm as compassionate, hardworking and thorough. Meanwhile, local judges have deemed us fair in the courtroom and honest with our clients. To this day, the majority of our cases are based off of repeat business and referrals from local attorneys. We like to think of these cases as evidence that we are building relationships right.

Our Founding Principles


We do not release substandard work and we always tell the whole truth without reservation.


The reason we are here is to help the client no matter what the need.


We always go all in and stay laser focused on solving the client’s problem.

A Trial Can Impact Your Entire Life, And We Are With You Every Step Of The Way

As much as we love digging into a complex case, we recognize that you are not a lawyer. You do not want to spend every waking moment worrying about the details of your case, and you should not have to. When presented with a case, we listen, brainstorm, strategize, plan and prepare as efficiently as possible so you have that much less to worry about. After all, the more we can do to prepare a strong case for you, the lower the stress and the sooner we get the matter resolved.

One of our most important policies is open, transparent communication. So, if we hit a bump in the road, run into a deeper issue or even realize you would be better off with different representation, we will let you know. At the end of the day, our ultimate goal is always to guide you to the most beneficial result possible.
