At White, Davis, and White Law Firm, we pride ourselves on trying cases to a verdict in front of a judge or jury whenever it is in our client’s best interests, but lawyers who actually try cases are becoming rarer and rarer these days.
You will see T.V. advertisements, billboards, and banners with catchy jingles and clever one-liners, and some display a great passion for being client advocates. These advertisements often include grand claims of getting the best settlements for their clients, and these lawyers hold themselves out to be trial lawyers. However, many times these lawyers only want a quick settlement, regardless of whether a quick settlement is in their client’s best interests, and are trial lawyers in name only. Many times, these lawyers have never tried a case at all, or if they have tried a case, the results have not been positive for their clients.
Lawyers with trial experience and a history of positive trial outcomes are rare. When looking for an attorney, it is important to ask about the attorney’s track record as a trial lawyer. It is also important that your lawyer knows the local laws and state laws well and has a good reputation within your community, as well as professional relationships with the attorneys, judges, and opposing counsel in your area.
A skilled trial lawyer can assess the strengths and weaknesses of a case, helping clients understand their chances of success and guiding them in making informed decisions. They know how to evaluate settlement offers and negotiate favorable terms for their clients. Experienced trial lawyers have been through many trials and can bring a level of confidence to their clients. This confidence can help clients feel more comfortable throughout the legal process, knowing they have a skilled advocate on their side.
It is important when choosing the law firm that you have confidence in your lawyer’s abilities and reputation, and equally as important that opposing parties and their insurance companies have confidence in your attorney’s abilities as a trial lawyer. A lawyer with years of trial experience and knowledge of local laws and the courts will likely improve your legal experience and outcome immensely.
