After deciding to take a case, a trial lawyer has only two options, either to settle the claim or try the case. A good trial advocate has the proper positive mental attitude from the very beginning – to try the client’s case to verdict. With such a positive frame of mind, you will have made all the necessary preparations to negotiate a much better settlement for your client. On the other hand, if you go forward with a lawsuit only with the intent of settling the claim, more likely than not, you will end up with a settlement that is considerably less than the case may actually be worth. Even worse, you might try it to an unsuccessful verdict.
