The Art of Effective Representation: Why Clients Trust Delgado & Fernández, LLC for Litigation Matters

May 2024
Delgado & Fernández, LLC

Litigation requires a substantial investment of time, money, and other resources. As a result, choosing the right lawyer for you and your case is vital to achieving a successful outcome. One of the biggest challenges you face during the selection process is determining who you can trust. As a litigation firm that has been in operation for over 25 years, it may be helpful to explain why our clients trust us to handle their litigation matters. 

A Litigation Practice Rooted in Experience

There is no substitute for experience, especially when it comes to litigation. Whether involved in a high-stakes claim or a comparatively minor dispute, you need a trial-tested lawyer who knows the law and how to navigate the litigation process deftly. 

Importantly, you need a lawyer who knows the local courts and judges where your case is handled. Every court has its own unique rules and procedures. Knowing the local procedures and the judges’ particular inclinations can give you a distinct advantage when going to court. 

Delgado & Fernández, LLC, has been representing businesses and individuals in courtrooms both here in Puerto Rico and in the United States for more than two decades. We leverage our extensive experience in every case we handle. 

We Handle Complex, Sophisticated Cases

We have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle the most challenging cases. We routinely handle cases involving creditors’ rights, sophisticated securities, intellectual property matters, construction issues, surety law, and commercial regulatory issues. We know what it takes to handle complex cases successfully: 

  • A thorough investigation of the facts, the incident or incidents that gave rise to the dispute, and the various allegations involved;
  • A careful study of how state, federal, and perhaps international will apply to your case, with particular attention paid to nuanced interpretations;
  • An aggressive yet creative approach to developing an effective litigation strategy;
  • An aggressive, cost-effective execution backed by exhaustive preparation. 

Clients with challenging cases can rest assured that we have what it takes to resolve their claims. Clients with more straightforward cases can trust us to bring the same experience and intense focus to deliver the results they need quickly and cost-effectively. 

We Are Always Prepared to Go the Distance

There are too many litigators whose primary strategy is to settle the case. While this allows their clients to avoid the expense associated with a lengthy trial, there are two shortcomings to this approach: 

  1. They yield valuable leverage in settling the claim when it becomes apparent that they are reluctant to litigate, and,
  2. They have lost valuable time needed to prepare if settlement negotiations fail.

At Delgado & Fernández, LLC, we prepare for trial from the outset. We believe that this allows us to obtain the best possible settlement offers. And if settlement is not an option, we are better prepared to litigate your case than the opposing party. 

We Know That Litigation Isn’t Always the Best Option

Litigation is expensive, and at Delgado & Fernández, LLC, you can expect your lawyer to provide candid legal advice about your case. Sometimes, this means telling you a settlement is agreeable, sometimes it means we recommend you consider other options. We regularly offer pre-litigation advice to our clients, evaluating their claims and chances of success if they choose to proceed. We have no interest in running up legal fees in a case where there is a strong possibility of an unfavorable outcome without making sure that you understand the risks involved. For defendants who find themselves named in a lawsuit, we help them understand their options so that they can make an informed decision about how to proceed. 

We Are Seasoned Appellate Attorneys

Litigation can be unpredictable. Judges and juries can make unexpected and even unreasonable decisions that result in undesirable outcomes. Thankfully, you always have the right to appeal if you take immediate action and know how to navigate the appeal process. 

In addition to our successes as trial lawyers, we have extensive experience as appellate attorneys, which means we know what errors will likely lead to an appeal and how to avoid them. We also know how to identify appealable issues and ensure the trial court record reflects the issue for review by the appellate court. 

This also means that we can handle your appeal rather than handing it off to another law firm. As a result, you do not have to spend time and money getting another team of attorneys up to speed on your case. 

We Work with a Broad Range of Clients

We work with high-net-worth individuals, Fortune 500 companies, and locally owned and operated businesses across a variety of industries and practice concentrations:

  • Manufacturing and distribution
  • Banks, investment firms, and other financial institutions
  • Insurance companies and sureties
  • Construction companies and developers
  • Educational institutions
  • Franchisors
  • Tourism-related businesses and organizations

With such a broad spectrum of experience, we are positioned to handle our clients’ needs. 

Cost-Effective, Value-Added Legal Representation

While principles of justice and fairness are necessary, we know it can be just as crucial for litigation to be economical for our clients. To that end, we look for ways to handle your case cost-effectively. At Delgado & Fernández, LLC, you can expect lower overhead and a more streamlined, meaning that you get the experience and service of larger firms at a lower cost.
