Why You Should Choose A Trial Lawyer
What exactly is a trial lawyer? Even for attorneys this is a difficult question to answer. Every lawyer wants to believe that they have their client’s best interests at heart. And that they are doing everything in their power to help their clients receive the maximum value for their case.
The truth is however that there is, in fact, a difference between trial lawyers and the rest in their profession. It’s not a difference of “heart” but rather a difference of “mind.” Trial lawyers think about cases differently. When a client first walks in the door a trial lawyer begins to think about their closing arguments: What’s the client’s story? What will a jury think about the facts at hand? What experts will I need to marshal my evidence? These questions, when thought about on day one, are what sets trial lawyers apart.
Trial lawyers play the long game, which requires patience and trust. Many cases across the country are settled prematurely due to a lawyer’s fear of the jury. This fear often manifests itself in cases being settled for far less than what is deserved. When five or six figures settlement offers are made, these offers can be very tempting for clients (and their attorneys) to accept. Trial lawyers understand that while the offer may be enticing at first blush, it is important to weigh the costs, risks, and potential rewards associated with declining the offer and continuing with litigation. At times, it can make sense to settle early in the litigation. Other times, after considering these factors, along with the client’s best interests, it is the right decision to push forward with the litigation – even if that results in a trial.
In short, there is no definitive list of qualities or characteristics to separate trial lawyers from the rest. Rather, it is the intangibles that trial lawyers possess that place them in a better position to advocate for their clients. Either you are a trial lawyer or you aren’t – we at Patrick Daniel Law, are.
