Boris is an accomplished attorney who has been recognized as a National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 and won the prestigious “10 Best Attorneys for Client Satisfaction”, awarded annually by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. His results and awards are matched only by his impressive legal training received at the University of Chicago School of Law – ranked #4 in the United States by U.S. News and World Reports.
Boris is a proud member of the Florida Justice Association, American Bar Association, and American Association for Justice.
Many other personal injury firms pass along all the work to paralegals or secretaries. Boris is passionate about personally handling each and every case and getting to know and understand his clients’ injuries and the impacts that their injuries are having on their lives. Often times, Boris visits clients at their homes and discovers facts that might have not been mentioned by clients or overlooked by an assistant. For example, during one meeting with a client at their home, Boris discovered that there were box springs for a bed in the hallway. After asking the client’s husband why the box springs were there, the husband informed Boris that his wife cannot climb into bed due to her injury and had to have the box springs removed to lower the height of bed.
By getting to know these important details, Boris is able to passionately and aggressively fight for maximum compensation. Other lawyers may rely on summaries prepared by an assistant, but Boris understands that nothing can compare to getting personally acquainted with each client.
In addition, by personally getting involved in every case, Boris can immediately begin investigating each case and securing valuable evidence. For example, it may be necessary to send a private investigator to take pictures of the vehicles involved in a crash or get copies of red lights camera footage or store surveillance videos. Losing such critical evidence can be disastrous to successfully prosecuting a serious injury case. Since Boris gets involved in each case from the beginning, this ensures there will not be any delays in taking the steps necessary to preserve and acquire evidence.
Having Boris personally involved in each case also means that clients are never in the dark about the progression of their case. Each client is given Boris’s direct number and can call with any questions about their case status. Many other firms direct clients to call an assistant or case manager for a status update, but those non-attorney employees may not be very familiar with the case details. Boris routinely receives calls from potential clients who have fired their attorney, and the most common reason given is that the attorney would not return phone calls. Boris makes sure that each client’s call is either answered or the client is called back that very same day. You shouldn’t have to wait days or weeks to get a call back from your attorney. After all, the attorney should be working for you and answering to you. By hiring Boris Lavent, you can be certain that you’ll always be able to reach him and have an advocate who will passionately fight for you.
