We are known for our trial-ready approach in which we prepare for every case as though we are going to trial. By planning for trial from day one, we are able to plot our every action toward successful litigation. This tactic also gives us an edge during settlement negotiations because opposing counsel knows we are ready to take the case to trial unless settlement terms are favorable to our client.
