What is civil litigation? Civil litigation encompasses almost every area of the law. And it is impossible to practice law effectively unless you limit yourself to specific areas. I limit myself to trial advocacy because of my passion for conducting jury trials. As such my talents are best suited to helping those whose cases may be needed to be resolved by a jury.
I have found that personal injury litigation is a perfect compliment to my criminal practice. While, most civil attorneys rarely conduct a jury trial, I often find myself in fornt of a jury. Therefore, when faced with an attorney who is not afraid of the courtroom, defense attorneys are more likely to enter into good faith negotiations knowing that I will not be afraid to go to trial.
Because of my criminal practice, I conduct jury trials frequently and this keeps my skills sharp and my understanding of jurors attitudes current. This is an invaluable weapon that my opponents are familiar with. In civil litigation, jury trial experience is a rare commodity that I have a surplus of.
Nevertheless, as in all litigation, a trial should be considered as the last option in an effort to protect your rights. Litigation can be costly, time consuming, and often stressful. Therefore, attempts are always made to obtain satisfactory result through negotiations and reasoning. However, many people are quick to deny fault or are unreasonable in their negotiations, in which case vigorous and aggressive litigation may be the only answer. I provide each client with personalized attention in order to find an effective and fair solution. My goal is to achieve a desirable result as quickly as possible. If necessary I will demand a jury trial to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
