One of the primary differentiators between many other lawyers and our team is that we truly love what we do. Our clients frequently comment about our high energy and unwavering commitment to their cause. They rest in the knowledge that we care about their matter every bit as much as they do (and oftentimes more). We are not the traditional corporate law firm that over promises and under delivers, phones it in, or holds endless meetings to bill (and waste) time. We are genuine advocates.
Our love for our work translates to results. In a Court Order filed in August 2015, a prominent Minnesota state-court judge noted our "...stellar reputation both within the commercial litigation and white-collar defense bar." And in February 2017, a highly respected federal judge filed a Court Order that singled out our "exemplary legal representation."
Too many lawyers hold themselves out as "trial lawyers." It's just not enough anymore. This now-overused phrase is insufficient to provide value without the unquestionable experience and success to back it up. With our undeniable reputation, our clients know that they convey a credible threat that they will proceed to trial rather than settle for an unacceptable resolution. Our trial prowess, creative abilities, and commitment to our clients facilitate better resolutions — both in and out of the courtroom. And we have laid our reputations on the line time and time again when it is in our client's best interests because we live the tenet that we are advocates for our clients, not for ourselves, our law firm, or our standing in the community.
We are known not only for our ability to take cases to trial, but also to effectively resolve matters out of the public eye. As Chris Madel often notes, some of our greatest accomplishments — including multi-million-dollar settlements, confidential "walkaways," declination of criminal prosecutions, and immunity from federal criminal prosecution — have been achieved without a hint of publicity.
MADEL PA is also proud of its contributions to our community. In addition to the wide variety of pro bono work that each of us do every year, we are also a Platinum sponsor to Minnesota Women's Lawyers and a Diamond sponsor to the Innocence Project of Minnesota.
We hope you will give us a call or send us an email for your new matter.
