Are you a general counsel or litigator working for a medium or large law firm who is looking for alternative dispute resolution or trial consulting? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Whether it’s civil rights, class actions, commercial cases, bankruptcy issues, or personal injury, we have the experience to help you. Here are just a few areas where attorneys benefit from trial consulting and alternative dispute resolution:
1. Discrimination Suits – Did you know that currently one in every three African Americans say they have experienced discrimination within the past year? We all know that discrimination is wrong, but as attorneys you want to ensure that justice is given to them whether it be through a monetary settlement or a change in the law. We have a roster of 50 former federal judges who are experts in many areas of law including civil rights. Imagine how much more confident you could be when submitting your complaint if you’ve had an expert’s eyes on it several times.
2. Bankruptcy Cases – In February of 2015 there was a daily average of 3,422 bankruptcy filings. That is just a single month! The causes of bankruptcy are not going away. For instance, medical expenses account for more than half (62%) of all Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies in the United States today. Other obvious causes are credit card debt, personal loans, payday loans, and of course the ever growing student loans.
3. Personal Injury – As an attorney you probably know that the number one type of personal injury case in the United States today involves car, truck, and motorcycle accidents. What many people don’t know is that 95-96% of all personal injury cases are settled pretrial. This is where our alternative dispute resolution comes in. We have a skilled set of former mediation judges and practitioners that collectively have a high success rate achieving settlements. They can take a look at your case with you to advise on the best strategy to achieve your client’s goal.
Trial consulting and alternative dispute resolution are just two of the tools that attorneys all across the country use to give themselves an edge in court. Which one would benefit you more? Depending on the types of law that you practice you may lean more towards trial consulting vs. alternative dispute resolution.
