Jordan Redavid is a husband, father of two, and one of the founding partners of our law firm. His vision is simple: commit to the pursuit of civil justice for people in need, strategize about how to best achieve it, and then relentlessly and creatively pursue it. In a world of quick settle-for-less dealmakers, Jordan’s unwavering commitment to justice is uncommon. He wants the best results for his clients, not necessarily the fastest. That’s why he routinely takes cases to trial and asks juries to provide justice when insurance companies won’t.
Jordan knows that just one wrong choice or lapse in judgment, even if by accident, can ruin even the best-laid plans, dreams, and visions for clients’ futures. Whether it’s the semi-truck that caused a devastating crash; a drunk or distracted driver; the large corporation or home improvement store that prioritizes profits over people; or a government agency, law enforcement, or correctional officer who violates the civil rights of its citizens, Jordan helps those victims get access to justice.
The reality is that most victims of negligence, malpractice, or civil rights violations would rather turn back the hands of time to prevent the terrible situation from ever happening at all than recover money. But they aren’t given that choice. Some life-altering experience has been thrust upon them through no fault of their own and the only choice they have is how to respond. Helping people in need is what Jordan has dedicated his life to.
Access to justice is hardly a guarantee. That’s because standing behind most at-fault or negligent actors is a large insurance company, corporation, or government that would rather deny liability and hire an army of lawyers, investigators, and experts to deny or delay justice. Plus, many laws are written by legislators who have been influenced by special interest groups and lobbyists to elevate the wishes of pro-insurance, pro-government, or pro-corporate interests over the needs of individual citizens and constituents. But by focusing on quality representation and creative litigation strategies, Jordan believes he can increase the likelihood of recovery for his clients.
Almost any lawyer can “make a claim” for someone who has been seriously injured or lost a loved one. But it takes a remarkable degree of grit, determination, creativity, and drive to see that a client’s best interests are never compromised and that justice is done. Money is the measure in our American system of civil justice, so only a full and fair recovery is true justice.
Actions speak louder than words. Former clients continue to refer Jordan clients based on the positive, service-oriented experience they had themselves. So do opposing lawyers after they witness firsthand what Jordan can do in the courtroom. Standing up to big insurance, big government, or big corporations is not for the faint of heart. Jordan will never back down or succumb to their pressure. It’s no surprise that in many circles he is perceived as a risk or threat to those who don’t want to pay up and bear responsibility for changing the trajectory of a client or family’s lives.
