Asserting Your Interests At Trial

At trial, the outcome of a case is in the hands of the judge and the 12 strangers who make up the jury. Success at trial depends as much upon the ability to communicate facts to these people as it does on the facts themselves. A trial lawyer must be able to make the client's position clear to those 12 strangers, to make them understand why they should choose the outcome that best suits the client's needs.

Chodos & Associates has decades of experience successfully resolving cases in front of a judge and jury. We serve clients in the Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California.

The Trial Process: What Is Formality? What Truly Matters?

Experience teaches a lawyer what truly matters when preparing for a trial. Spending time on something that is merely a formality means that not enough time may be spent on what truly matters. Chodos & Associates has the skill to carefully and correctly prepare for the trial process, taking into account the nuances of the process itself, as well as the dispositions of the players involved, including the judges who preside over cases.

Setting The Stage For A Successful Trial

When business litigation, contract disputes, entertainment litigation, real estate litigation and other types of litigation go to trial, it is not uncommon for the client to take the stand. An important part of preparation is working with the client so he or she understands how to answer questions. The slightest misstep, such as arguing instead of answering a question or telling even the slightest lie, can irreparably damage a case. Chodos & Associates take great care in this aspect of preparation.
