Twenty years ago, Marc Pillinger, Jeff Miller, and Nick Tarallo started a law firm in a 750-square-foot office in Elmsford, NY. Their goal was simple: provide results and value with swift, cost-effective resolution of cases. From the start, they recognized they were in the business of resolving cases. They believed as cases were settled, their clients would send them more. They were right!
The process that Marc, Jeff, and Nick used when they started continues today. This simple formula has allowed the firm to grow into a regional law firm approaching 100 lawyers in 9 offices and four states. When a case comes in, they immediately evaluate it by utilizing the PMT Numbers Roundtable, which establishes the actual value. Then, PMT aggressively pushes toward a settlement by reaching out to the plaintiff’s attorneys and starting a dialogue to reach a common goal. They utilize tools like mediation and ADR to find the number that will resolve the case. PMT continually reminds plaintiff attorneys that the only good case is one that is settled. Cases are not like fine wine that gets better with age!
As a result of this process, PMT has resolved thousands of cases. PMT is known as the go-to firm for insurance companies and self-insureds. Jeff Miller and Marc Pillinger are recognized by the NYS Bar Association and the Office of Court Administration as authorities in mediating and settling cases. For twenty years, The PMT Advantage has continually and consistently applied these principles and tools to settle cases. Let it work for you.
