Each type of case has its own controlling principles of law and the law is constantly changing. For these reasons, the skill and experience of an attorney is a key factor regarding the outcome of the case.

Most court cases never reach trial, and are usually settled before trial. Proper development of any lawsuit requires formal research and informed preparation for trial. This is done because the case may actually be litigated at trial or the matter may need to be discussed and argued in negotiating a settlement. Both situations require lawyers to have the necessary facts, law and evidence to present the client’s case in the best light possible.
