Your rights are to file a lawsuit and to have a jury in front of your peers in the community. This is the most important weapon that we have as attorneys that represent people. Typically, however, most cases settle without a trial. In fact, I would estimate that over 90% of our cases are settled prior to going to trial. Nevertheless, we treat every case — from the beginning — as if there is going to be a trial to ensure the other side knows that we are serious about this case.
