“The average civil case takes about a year to resolve. Much of what lawyers do in that year has no impact on what happens in a trial. Some of the work is important–discovery reveals the evidence, and motions can narrow the issues.  But, a large portion of the work is actually driven by law firm economics. Lawyers, particularly those hired by large companies and insurance companies, do unnecessary work in order to bill for it.  Many lawyers are more focused on billing than on winning.

My firm is different. We are focused on winning.  We do everything necessary, and nothing that is not.  We design a legal strategy which achieves each client’s goals in an effective and economical manner.  Most cases do settle but years of experience have proven that focusing our efforts on the trial from the beginning ensures the best out come for our clients.”
