Trial Attorney


When selecting an attorney to litigate your personal injury claim it is important that you hire an attorney who is willing to advocate on your behalf in front of a judge and jury. A good trial lawyer is someone who is committed to getting justice for you, is qualified to take your case to court and is not afraid to argue your case in front of a jury. A lawyer who is unwilling to argue your case in front of a jury may try and settle your case for an amount less than what a jury would award. Many other personal injury attorneys claim they are seeking to recover the “Maximum Cash Settlement” for your claim, meaning they do not plan to take your case to trial. They will not advocate on your behalf. The Miami personal injury attorneys at Friedland | Carmona seek the best possible result for every client and are prepared to take every case to trial if it ensures you will receive the maximum compensation you deserve. Don’t risk your recovery on an inexperienced attorney who is unwilling to argue in a courtroom.
