3 Ways Sports Equipped Contrada as a Personal Injury Lawyer
Contrada’s experience playing college football, coaching, and leading a recreation center gives him an extra edge as a personal injury lawyer.
On October 14 and November 5, 2015, Tom Cole interviewed Charles V. Contrada, car accident lawyer, on BCSN Sports Flash. The conversations centered around how sports are key to helping youth develop long-term career skills.
Contrada played football at Kenyon College and graduated before completing law school at the University of Toledo. He was President of the Sylvania Recreation Corporation for 5 years and served as a board member for many more.
Three characteristics from Contrada’s sports background directly augment his effectiveness as a personal injury attorney in the courtroom:
As Cole asserts, “Clients all say the same thing: ‘Charlie fights for us.’ You go into the courtroom and, like you’re putting the pads on, you’re playing to win.”
It is not only what Contrada does in the courtroom that leads to success, but also how he prepares. He explains, “Look at the coaches… they practice every day during the week because they are preparing for that particular game. That’s also true with trials.”
3. Grace Under Pressure
Contrada references great quarterbacks that remain calm and collected regardless of the situations they face. “[In light of the] heavy emotion that might be happening, you’re cool as a cucumber and trying to think ahead of the other side,” says Contrada.
Contrada is braced to go head-to-head with your opponent in the courtroom. If you have been involved in a car accident in Michigan or Ohio, contact attorney Charles V. Contrada at 419.841.4400.
