MEET THE TEAM
We are trial attorneys, not just litigators.
When trials are on the horizon and settlements are outside the realm of possibility, many litigators turn cases over to experienced trial attorneys. Not us. We are experienced trial attorneys, as evidenced by our proven record of success at trial.
The importance of trial experience cannot be overstated. Trial experience is necessary for evaluation. If your attorney has never tried a case, how can he or she advise you on the value of a case? Trial experience is necessary for litigation. If your attorney has never tried a case, how can he or she make informed decisions about which documents to request and which witnesses to depose during discovery? Trial experience is necessary for settlement. If your attorney has never tried a case, how can he or she take a strong position on a fair settlement during negotiations? And perhaps needless to say, trial experience is necessary for trial. If your attorney has never tried a case, how can he or she anticipate what will and will not resonate with a jury?
Choose attorneys who will not pressure you to settle a winnable case. Choose attorneys who will not make you pay for different attorneys to get caught up to speed whenever a trial is in the pipeline. Choose attorneys who will not be afraid to enter the ring, put up their dukes, and fight for you. Choose us.
