History of Terrell Hogan
Terrell Hogan, formed in 1974, is the largest jury trial firm in Northeast Florida representing only victims injured by negligence, intentional wrongdoing or defective products. Conveniently located in Downtown Jacksonville (five bridges and two interstate highways provide easy access to our office with plenty of parking), Terrell Hogan is dedicated to providing thorough representation to injury victims seeking justice. This “leave no stone unturned” philosophy has always been the key to success for the firm’s clients.
The right of access to the courts and right of trial by jury are enshrined in our Florida Constitution. Steadily dedicated to fighting for the rights of innocent victims, and seeking the vindication they deserve, Wayne Hogan and his fellow civil justice attorneys and staff sincerely respect our clients and serve them with dedication, sensitivity and strength.
Facing physical, emotional and financial trauma can be devastating to even the strongest of us. However, our Constitution and our laws are designed to protect victims of personal injury. When our clients know they have an advocate on their side, they can make it through even the most difficult times. Everyone at Terrell Hogan understands that personal injury victims are often going through the most traumatic times of their lives and enduring disastrous financial expense, grinding pain and suffering, or even the loss forever of someone very dear to them. This devastation to the lives of those we serve causes us to consider it our personal responsibility to bring swiftly to justice those whose wrongs produced the suffering.
And our experience, resources and swift action, joined with the determination of our clients, have helped achieve lasting success for our clients over the years.
Terrell Hogan has completed thousands of cases, many large, of course, but also those small in the eyes of others but important of those whose rights had been trampled. We have board-certified trial attorneys who have extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of personal injury and wrongful death law. So no matter what your case is, you can feel confident that we have firsthand knowledge to apply to the task. Our areas of expertise include: wrongful death, trucking accidents, highway accidents, bicycle accidents, unsafe products, personal injury, defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, motel, apartment or shopping center attacks, burn injuries, insurance coverage, toxic tort exposure, asbestos, mesothelioma, defective drugs, and animal attacks.
A law firm is only as good as the people in it. And at Terrell, Hogan we’re surrounded by many of the brightest minds in the legal profession. Our attorneys have excellent educational backgrounds and experience, engage in constant continuing education, and, most importantly, they all share a sense of compassion, dedication and desire to represent our clients to best of their ability.
Additionally, our firm has the necessary resources to support strong cases. Over the years, we’ve developed and maintained a variety of top resources, including expert witnesses, medical testing and information services, investigators, researchers, an in-house staff of professionals, and we have the financial strength to see every case through to the end. Some cases can last only several months but others can take years, and we are prepared and able to finance those cases.
When we take on a case, we are determined to win it. Our experience teaches that we must start preparing for a trial as soon as the client asks us to represent them. That preparation for trial is the key to producing deserved settlements for our clients. Ours is not a 9-to-5 job. We have purposely kept our office near the courthouse; our staff is readily available and we can continue working at lunch, during court recesses and into the night on behalf of our clients.
Above all, we are committed to our clients and our reputation. We fight just as hard for a “small” case as we do for a big case.
Clients are hallowed individuals at Terrell, Hogan. We feel a great responsibility to those who entrust their cases. We know that you are coming to us at a very difficult time and rely on our expertise and guidance to help you through it. So when we take on your case, we devote our time and attention to building the strongest, most solid case we can.
Your case will benefit from the combined knowledge and experience of our entire firm. In fact, we assign teams of experienced attorneys to a single case. And your case will have the full support of our professional staff. We are dedicated to seeing each and every case through to the end. That’s why we prepare each and every case for trial. Insurance companies and defense firms know this and treat our clients’ cases with the respect they deserve. This preparation and respect will help us get the best settlement or verdict for you.
It’s this simple: Referrals from former clients and their friends and family are the greatest source of new clients for our firm.
Looking to the future, we continue our tradition of aggressive, competent legal representation. We view it as our on-going mission to persevere in representing the injured as they seek justice, and to act as a catalyst for the kind of change that helps everyone live safer lives.
