A San Luis Obispo Trial Lawyer Working for You

Every trial is a process designed to determine the guilt or innocence of the person on trial. This is accomplished by judicially examining a case in accordance with the letter of the law. In every case, there is a defendant and a plaintiff, and a jury, judge or other tribunal decides on the innocence or guilt/liability of the defendant.

With an experienced trial attorney from James McKiernan Lawyers by your side, you can rest assured that your case is in the best possible hands. Handling everything from civil litigation to estate planning, our San Luis Obispo attorneys advise you on your best options and then work closely with you until your case is resolved.

Why Do I Need a Trial Lawyer?

Many people don’t make the effort to engage a trial lawyer because they don’t want to or believe their case will ever go to trial. This is the wrong way to look at your case. Think of a trial lawyer as an advantage. If your attorney has a good record of winning at trial, your case is more likely to settle because the defendant may not want to go up against you in court. Most cases do settle out of court, but you certainly want to be prepared in case you do end up in court.

You want a trial lawyer on your side, especially if you are going head-to-head with an insurance company. Insurance companies understand who is a threat and who is not. Go in with as much leverage as possible. It may sound backwards, but the best bet to avoid going to trial is to hire an experienced and well-known trial law firm.
