In 1983, two then young graduates
of the University of Southern California Law Center
(one of the top law schools in the country) decided
to form their own partnership. The law firm of BURRIS &
THOMAS was born. Later a partner changed and the law firm became THOMAS & SPRINGBERG.
Their idea for the law firm was to specialize
in only personal injury cases. But they decided to build
the practice the "old fashioned way." The
decided that they did not want to join the circus of
attorneys who were then beginning to advertise heavily
on television and on billboards. They were convinced
that if they did a good job for their clients, eventually
word would spread and their business would prosper.
They also decided that they would stay
away from taking frivolous claims. Although many lawyers
would file frivolous lawsuits, just to get a "nuisance
value" payout, the law firm of
THOMAS & SPRINGBERG believed that this tactic only brought disrepute to
the legal profession, and would damage the chances of
their clients receiving optimum settlements or judgment
(if the judge or insurance company knew that they engaged
in such tactics.)
Slowly but surely, the business prospered.
Because they did not have to spend hundreds of thousands
of dollars on advertising, they were able to devote
more resources to helping clients with their cases.
As business has increased, the law firm has grown steadily
over the years. They now employ four full-time attorneys,
three full-time college degreed paralegals (including
a registered nurse), and a full-time investigator. They
purchased and remodeled an 8,200 square foot office
building in 1995. Our firm has the highest rating possible
Another part of the philosophy of
THOMAS & Springberg is that clients deserve to have attorneys,
not legal assistants, handle their files. The law firm
THOMAS & SPRINGBERG does have quality attorneys handling
each and every file.
