The truth is that most lawyers do not have the skill, knowledge, dedication, aggressiveness, and judgment required to litigate a case, much less handle a court hearing or a trial. Litigating a case and taking a case to trial is extremely difficult, time-consuming, and costly. We know because we have had to fight those fights on behalf of our clients. Be it a deposition of a corporate representative in insurance cases, cross-examination of a police officer in a criminal case, cross-examination of an opposing expert witness in a personal injury case, or arguing a case to a judge, jury, or the Utah Supreme Court, our firm has fought on all of these fronts and prevailed for our clients.
Being respected by judges and opposing counsel are very valuable for our clients, which is why we strive to maintain a high level of professionalism and respect from our colleagues in the justice system. By maintaining our integrity and reputation, we not only serve our current clients but our future clients, as well. We believe it is extremely important to counsel the client on what arguments should be pursued and which arguments should be abandoned. Pursing a bad position in a case is never good for the client, and can severely backfire, so litigating parties need an attorney who can be honest about what positions should be strongly pushed and which positions should not be.
