Litigation is the process of resolving a dispute in court. While many people picture lawyers arguing in front of a jury, very few cases get that far as there are numerous steps that must be completed before a case ever reaches trial.
Often, we can help resolve a case quickly through simple negotiations. While two parties may be deadlocked over their interpretation of the situation, a lawyer can help provide an objective assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the case as well as the likely outcome if it were to move forward. If you do decide to move forward, we will then begin the discovery process where we exchange additional information with the other side. This new information also leads to many settlements.
Of course, if negotiation isn’t possible we are fully prepared to fight for your rights whether that ends up being in mediation, arbitration, or trial as well as any subsequent appeals.
