Once the lawsuit is filed, the idea is to move the case ahead as quickly as possible, ultimately to reach a trial. Although it is a statistical fact that most cases do settle before trial, we have found that we get the best results dor our clients by preparing every single case as if it will go to trial. This means we do all the work, gather all the records and evidence, prepare all the witnesses. We fully prepare for every case to go to trial.
We have found that by doing so, our adversaries see that we are confident and capable and willing to go all the way on behalf of our clients. This way, our adversaries are much more likely to make serious efforts to settle the case. If a satisfactory settlement is reached, we have done our job. If a settlment is not reached, we will be ready and are more than willing to have the case tried in court.
As stated, most cases do settle, but being properly prepared and being ready to go often makes all the difference.
