This is another difficult question to answer. We prepare every single case, from day one, as if it were going to go to trial. Preparation is the key to success and, often times, is the key to encouraging a pre-trial settlement. If we are approached with a settlement offer, we will take the time to discuss that offer with you and offer any recommendations we may have. Ultimately, the decision is yours regarding whether to accept any settlement offer if one is made. If our adversary is not willing to make a reasonable settlement offer, then yes, your case will go to trial and, rest assured, we will be prepared.
