About Don Kiley, Part II About Don Kiley, Part II Transcripts:
DK: You know, I found that there's a synergy to our practice because we do estate work and I do personal injury work. If someone is killed in an accident, I can handle the estate. I do the probate or the administration to make sure someone is appointed as a fiduciary to handle the case. When the case is over with, when it needs to be compromised - which is where the judge of the surrogate who is the judge who handles all matters involving decedents - when he asks to do the settlement, I can do the compromise order. I've always felt that worked very well for us. If I'm handling a mistake case, and I've done real estate before, which I have, I then know how to sell the real estate to liquidate the asset. So I've always found that having a background that's diverse worked to our favor. Now that I've been practicing law for 26 years, I can answer questions on general nature, and I've got a basis of knowledge that doesn't make me an expert in every field, I have an expertise. But in other fields I can say, ''Look, here is your concern.'' I think that really fed into my father's philosophy, which is our philosophy, that you're not a personal injury attorney, you're not a criminal attorney, you're not a liberal lawyer, you're an attorney. If you're an attorney you should be able to think critically, analyze issues, advise people to give people a sense of what their legal concerns are, and if it's not something that you handle comfortably, you direct them to another professional who can. We represent real people with real problems, and I find that our philosophy works well. We sometimes say, ''Well, look, I work with my family,'' and we treat people as we would want to be treated; we treat them like family. If I'm in a situation where I have someone who has a legal concern, I work like my family. I try to treat my clients with respect because if I don't, I have my brothers to answer to. It's not my style not to treat people with respect. But I think if someone looks at our firm from the outside, that's something which would attract them to our firm. These people all look like they work together, they're working as a team, they're family. And certainly that's the way we look at them.
Interviewer: I'm looking at your motto, ''Let our family help your family.'' Pretty well said right there.
