G. Harding died of a heart attack in office, and Vice President Calvin Coolidge became the 30th president. And Bobbie the Wonder Dog trekked 2,550 miles to return home. Of all the stories to come out of 1923, Bobbie’s may be the most incredible. It all started with a road trip. The Brazier family of Silverton, Oregon, decided to take a road trip to visit relatives in Wolcott, Indiana.

Everywhere you go, you’ll see big businesses spouting the same generic message. It goes something like this: “We care about you because we’re people-centered and focus on service.” But once you’re signed up, you’re no longer treated like a person. Instead, you’re just a transaction. Once companies get big, it becomes impossible for them to actually focus on the needs of individual customers. This is true in business, and it’s also true in law. At Alex and Saavedra, we are a boutique litigation firm, and we’re proud of that. We have been successfully representing clients for a combined 43 years. Our foundation is built on thorough investigation, proven trial techniques, and downright gritty preparation. We pour over your case, focusing on even the smallest minutiae — something that bigger firms simply cannot do. A large firm may have the gusto and bravado that attracts a lot of heavy hitters, but we have the credentials, the knowledge, and the experience to produce results. We may be a small firm, but that doesn’t mean we’re not talented or hardworking. For every one hour we spend in court, we invest 20 or more in preparatory work. We’re talking bona fide, in-depth research to the point where we know every facet of your case. This has led to our reputation as winning attorneys, and it’s the backbone of our 99 percent success rate. What Sets Us Apart From the Rest

We believe that when an individual is seriously injured, the difference between a life of dignity and a life of charity resides in the quality of representation.
