What is a Litigation Lawyer?
Litigation is the process where one party who has been legally wronged confronts the party who has wronged them, and demands that certain actions be taken in order to correct that wrong as much as possible. The wronged party is the plaintiff, and the person being accused is the defendant. At Brandy Austin Law, our litigation lawyers work for the plaintiff in order to help them legally assert their rights. We advocate for our clients and strive to provide them with the best possible conclusion.
Qualities of a Tough and Effective Litigation Lawyer
A litigation lawyer needs to play many different roles for their client, and be versatile enough to display a wide variety of qualities.
- Detective and investigator – In order to best serve our clients, our litigation lawyers don’t take any information we receive at face value. We apply this philosophy whether that information is coming from the defense. Our own client, or information we discover while investigating a case. We gather as many facts that are relevant to the case as possible, and present these as efficiently and convincingly as possible. Often these include the testimony of witnesses or experts. Using this information, we develop a strong strategy, while staying prepared to alter it if the case demands it.
- Consultant to Client – Strong communication is one of our most prevalent values as we work hard to be great litigation lawyers. We stay connected with our client throughout the case, listen to their concerns, and advise them of which strategy is best in order for them to achieve the most favorable outcome to the litigation as possible.
- Negotiator/Settler – Throughout any litigation case, a variety of negotiation must take place before the case concludes. At Brandy Austin Law, we continually look for ways to compromise in ways that won’t force our clients to sacrifice what is most important to them. We remember what matters most, and do what we can to allow the client to achieve their long term goals relating to the case. They will have a good sense of how to pick their battles in order to avoid costing their client any excessive expense that it not ultimately in their best interest.
Most of our litigation cases do not go to trial. They are ultimately settled through a series of negotiations and compromises made by our litigation lawyer and the defendant’s lawyer. They may enlist the help of others along the way, such as mediators or arbitrators, and hold conferences with opposing counsel, judges, and others knowledgeable about the issues in the case. No matter how experiences an attorney is, each case is a learning process. Our lawyers have a strong understanding of this, and convey it to our clients.
- Trial Lawyer – As with any battle in life, there are times when too much is at stake and compromise is not an option. Our litigation lawyers stay alert and open minded in order to recognize when a case has reached that point so we will be ready to serve as a trial lawyer when necessary. Not only do we present evidence to the judge and/or jury in attempt to convince them of our position, but we coach and prepare our clients on how to present themselves and their story to the court in an honest and convincing matter. With a strong legal team, we are always ready to reach out to them and provide them with the appreciation they deserve.
