“A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.”

~Robert Frost

OUR CASE PROCESS

Upon being retained we conduct an analysis of the facts and law so that we can properly evaluate the case. Once that is completed, we along with the client determine a plan on how to proceed which is consistent with the client’s goals.

Detailed Analysis

Upon being retained we conduct an analysis of the facts and law so that we can properly evaluate the case. Once that is completed, we along with the client determine a plan on how to proceed which is consistent with the client’s goals.
Along with the client, we determine when and how is the best time to attempt settlement. Some lawyers spend large sums of their client’s money litigating a case and then settle on the eve of trial for an amount that they could have settled for during the initial stages of the case. If we determine that economically it is in the best interest of the client to settle in the early stages of the case, we will recommend to the client that we attempt to do so.

Settlement Viability

Along with the client, we determine when and how is the best time to attempt settlement. Some lawyers spend large sums of their client’s money litigating a case and then settle on the eve of trial for an amount that they could have settled for during the initial stages of the case. If we determine that economically it is in the best interest of the client to settle in the early stages of the case, we will recommend to the client that we attempt to do so.
We are experienced trial lawyers with a proven track record. If the matter cannot be settled we will litigate the case through trial with the goal of obtaining the best result possible for the client. At the same time, we will continue to evaluate if there is an opportunity to achieve an economic settlement that is best for the client prior to trial. Whether or not we settle will be primarily based on the client’s goals and desires and a cost benefit analysis of the risks and rewards of trying the case versus settling.
