There are many avenues available in handling a legal matter. Every case is unique, demanding a thoughtful yet creative analysis, coupled with the careful application of select legal strategies and techniques. Our goal with every matter is developing a customized course of action designed to best protect your interests, mitigate your risks, and resolve your case in the most practical and cost-effective manner possible.
Most legal matters are resolved without the need for trial. Through application of the fundamentals of negotiation, arbitration and mediation, the key to resolving any type of dispute is thorough risk analysis, preparation and appropriate application of leverage.
When alternative dispute resolution methods don't accomplish your goals, a trial may be necessary. Planning for trial early, and not after negotiations fail, is crucial. Success at trial requires strategy and preparation, uncovering facts that drive a persuasive narrative, preserving crucial documents, identifying and preparing witnesses, and employing experts to support your case. Courtroom experience, including a command of procedural and evidentiary rules, is key to mitigating the risks of trial.
