Our Approach to Litigation
Even though many sources estimate that 95% of all lawsuits that are filed are eventually settled, we prepare our cases for trial. We have a hands-on approach to each matter that is entrusted to us. We strive to achieve the best possible results in the most efficient manner after consulting and advising our clients on the costs versus benefits of litigation. Generally, in order to resolve each matter on the most favorable basis possible, we prepare each matter with the expectation that it will be among the 5% of cases that actually go to trial. Such preparation invariably leads to successful settlements. However, if a reasonable settlement cannot be obtained, we are fully prepared to present our clients’ matters to an impartial judge, jury or arbitrator.
We support and provide advice and counsel with respect to the use of alternative dispute resolution procedures, where appropriate. We will recommend arbitration, mediation, judicial reference or other ADR techniques where appropriate.
The hallmark of all successful trial lawyers is diligence and preparation on important issues in the case, not endless paperwork and limitless legal fees. We do not generally believe in a “scorched earth” litigation approach that needlessly drives up the expense of a lawsuit, usually with little or no benefit to the clients.
