| Apr 24, 2020 | Firm News |

You didn’t want to litigate your case, but the other party has made it impossible to avoid. Now, all you want to do is to make this as simple as possible and to do your best to receive a favorable outcome.

There are some tips that you can follow to help you win your case. Of course, there are no guarantees, but with these tips, you may be more likely to be successful.

Know your case inside and out

The first thing to do is to make sure you know your case inside and out. You should be clear about what you want and what kinds of settlements would be acceptable. Educate yourself on past cases and awards, so you can be reasonable in your expectations.

Listen to your attorney

If your attorney has said that litigation would likely not help your case, you may want to go back and review any offers you had. Your attorney has experience, and they will be honest with you when the likelihood of winning a litigated case is minimal.

Make sure you’re flexible

Finally, be flexible. You should know what you can or cannot accept. Your idea of what is fair might differ from the court’s opinion, so be prepared for compromise.

It’s important to note that you will be able to work with your attorney long before your case goes to court. This gives you an excellent opportunity to learn more about what to expect, to be clear about what you do expect and to find out more about what you can do to boost your chances of success in the courtroom.
