Litigation Management
  • Litigation Management is a comprehensive management tool

and a courtesy that we offer to our clients:

    • It provides management with total visibility
    • It categorizes cases in terms of degree of risk (liability and damages)
    • It conducts discovery & investigation consistent with risks
    • It recommends dispositions consistent with risks
  • Litigation Management ensures attorney accountability and provides a

forum for discussion

  • Litigation Management provides a vehicle for controlling costs

For more detail see Litigation Management

mini focus group
Mini Focus Group
  • Mini-Focus Group is a practical tool that we have made part of our routine defense arsenal to assess risk and prepare for trial
    • It utilizes candidate jurors to explore how they think and react to case issues
    • It explores jury biases and common life experiences and how they affect case issues
    • It allows the defense to construct a “trial story” that fits juror thought patterns
