Contrary to what you see on TV, going to trial is a last resort. Trials cost money and time, and when it all comes down to it, you are at the mercy of the jury, that is to say, you are at the mercy of 12 complete strangers who may or may not have their own biases.
Ultimately, it is a risky proposition for both sides.
We are a firm of experienced trial lawyers. We are always willing to go to trial, and we have a very successful track record. However, it is often in your best interest to try to resolve your case through other means such as mediation and arbitration.
We evaluate every case on an individual basis, weigh all of the options, and proceed down the path that has the greatest chance of success.
