looking to hire a professional negotiator for restitution

Hi ,

I want to negotiate a restitution against a big firm. I want a professional with "never say die " attitude to negotiate for me.
I have seen some firms on line but they only negotiate some joke cases like car , mortgage etc..
this is a case that they are about to lose and I need to slam them pretty hard.
Any ideas would be appreciated

Have you checked Avvo.com?  It's a legal services marketplace where you can find and rate lawyers and see what others have thought of their service and performance.  You may find a good attorney who is adept at threatening the company you're after, but understand that the company also has their own attorneys who know what the lawsuit should be worth.  It might be worthwhile to first consult with an attorney who can give you an accurate cost/benefit analysis so you don't waste your time on negotiating, especially if the firm is offering a fair settlement on the case.

The type of professional you need depends on a number of factors, including the area in which you live and the nature of your claim.  This is really a legal issue, and you may need to work with a lawyer or law-firm.  If possible, find someone who will work on contingency, meaning that they only get paid if you win.  My recommendation would be for you to contact a lawyer who does NOT do this type of work and ask them to refer you to someone who does.  Someone who is already working in a related industry would be in the best position to make a recommendation.

Ehh I don't know about that.  I spoke to an accident attorney once about a legal matter that he wasn't an expert in, and he referred me to an attorney "down the hall."  Went there and the guy wanted me to pay him $500 plus a $60 filing fee to fill out one sheet of paper.  Ended up doing it on my own, and even went before a judge and successfully argued to win my case.  Saved myself the $500 and even realized that his services wouldn't have included going before the judge!  The cheapskate didn't even want to validate my parking ticket when his receptionist said he would.  I still recommend Avvo so you can avoid scumbags like him!  Good luck!

oh yeah , let me tell you this. I learnt the hard way that attorneys don't know jack...well most of them...all big talks , fancy clothing , bs..and nothing.  So you are 100% correct. I know I have to hire someone who is a professional hard core  j3rk , ( hehehe ) not attorney.
What I learnt is if I pick up the phone and talk to the other side will be considered extortion. If I hire a professional is called negotiation. Hehehehe .
I love this country !!
