How we work
Our approach begins by understanding each client's story. From this, we move to understanding of how the law applies to the facts, and draft the "jury charge" that should be submitted to a jury at trial. Client and lawyer then work together to develop the themes that best communicate the story to a jury. We know if your case is properly prepared for trial by lawyers with a winning trial record, you have the best chance to settle favorably. The opposite is also true--a case not ready for trial is unlikely to settle fairly, and may be forced to trial unnecessarily, often to a disastrous end. At best, your case--in the hands of lawyers not willing or able to effectively try it--likely results in leaving "money on the table". This is not just unfair to the client; it is arguably a breach of the duty of the attorney to the client. Our jury trial experience informs everything we do, and do not do, so that we work efficiently, for maximum results.
At trial, we focus on proven jury selection technique, and present the evidence with cutting-edge methods. Since each case must be prepared for trial, we typically accept only those cases with the likelihood of a substantial verdict. This does not mean that the amount in controversy must always be large.
Your lawyer's credibility and ability to try your case--particularly a complex case or a legal malpractice case--is critical to your ability to be taken seriously. Only by demonstrated jury trial experience will your lawyer be taken seriously when making a demand. Our trial experience and commitment to genuine trial preparation give you the best odds. When choosing a lawyer, ask each, "Tell me about your last trial to a jury". Then contact us for a free initial consultation. We'll be glad to tell you about our experience, and what we can do for you.
