Legal Settlements Attorney Los Angeles, CA

Trial lawyers often take great pride and personal satisfaction in arguing cases in front of a judge and jury and succeeding. However, there is always some degree of risk inherent in going to trial. That potential of trial risk is not the lawyer's, but the client's. While the process may be electrifying and energizing for an experienced trial lawyer, litigation is often stressful, costly and time consuming for the client.

Chodos & Associate's law team believe that trial is like surgery. It should be viewed as the last resort. Therefore, trials should be undertaken only after all other options have been explored and discarded. The firm has built an impressive record in the courtroom, but we have also achieved great success with arranging legal settlements that meet its clients' short-term and long-term needs.

We serve clients in the Los Angeles area and across Southern California.

Preparing The Case For The Proper Audience

In order to compel positive legal settlement then attorneys must understand that the audience is not the judge or jury, but rather your client's the opponent. The goal is to influence the other side to make them amenable to a legal settlement that is right for the client. This is not done through blunt attacks. Compelling legal arguments and strategy help to convince the opponent they could lose the case. Of course, an understanding of trial is critical. The opponent must understand how the flaws in his or her case could lead to a loss if the case were to be taken to trial.

Compelling A Settlement During The Discovery Process

Discovery is the process through which information is obtained from the opponent. This is when the opponents must give legal depositions in the pre-litigation process. These are where the opponent is asked verbal questions under oath. With decades of experience, Chodos & Associates understand that asking the correct questions the right way can compel an opponent to a legal settlement. The goal is to make the opponent answer questions in such a way that he or she comes to understand the flaws in his or her case, ultimately coming to the realization that settling is a better option than running the risk of losing if the case is taken all the way to trial.

In addition to traditional settlement negotiation, the firm is able to seek resolutions through alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation.
