Do You Really Need A Litigation Attorney?

In cases where litigation is unavoidable, our trial lawyer, Matthew Cunanan, aims to streamline the process, focusing on minimizing unnecessary delays along the way. Litigation is a crucial process in our legal system, serving as the formal mechanism through which disputes are resolved in court. The necessity of litigation arises from its ability to provide a structured, impartial arena for handling complex disputes that demand authoritative intervention. Litigation in court involves the enforcement and defense of legal rights, often after negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or arbitration, have failed.

Matthew steps in to advocate for our clients’ interests, presenting evidence and legal arguments to a judge or jury who then make a decision based on the merits of the case. Matthew provides our clients a comprehensive understanding of the risks and benefits of litigation and guides them towards the most favorable path. He strives to expedite resolutions for contentious disputes in a manner that is both time-effective and cost-effective, without sacrificing the quality of the result.

Representing Clients Throughout The Seattle Metropolitan Area Since 2010

How Is A Trial Lawyer Different From Other Lawyers?

Trial lawyers are essential for effective dispute resolution both in and out of the courtroom. They must have experience analyzing the legal aspects of a case and developing a strategy to effectively represent clients at hearings and trials. A trial lawyer needs to proactively negotiate settlement agreements when possible to avoid protracted litigation.

In addition, a good trial lawyer has knowledge of the rules of civil procedure for various levels of the court system, is highly organized as well as stays abreast of the everchanging landscape of legislative regulations and case law updates. They must build a compelling case based on the facts of your circumstances alongside the laws governing the relevant area of law.

At DC Law Group, our founding attorney, Matthew Cunanan, has over 15 years of experience. He is highly skilled with the intricacies of state and federal legal procedures and advocating persuasively in court. He works to present our clients’ positions clearly and assertively, focusing on critical issues to avoid overcomplicating matters and increasing the chances of a favorable outcome. He is a trial lawyer who knows when encouraging the opposing party to engage in settlement discussions – and potentially avoiding the need for a trial – will produce the best possible outcome.
