the first thing about divorce trials is
00:07
a majority of divorce cases in texas are
00:10
settled
00:11
through what we call alternative dispute
00:13
resolution that could be mediation it
00:15
could be
00:17
informal settlement between the
00:18
attorneys and the parties but i always
00:22
explain to clients that you cannot
00:24
settle a case that you are not prepared
00:25
to take to trial i have extensive trial
00:28
experience in both jury trials
00:31
and bench trials trying over hundreds of
00:33
cases on complex property issues
00:37
custody issues
00:39
you know grandparent rights
00:42
criminal cases things of that nature
00:45
and
00:46
what you’re going to get uh at our firm
00:48
is that from the minute we take your
00:49
case and the minute you become our
00:50
client
00:52
we are going to be preparing that case
00:53
for trial now ultimately your case may
00:56
settle and you may be able to resolve
00:59
your disputes outside of court and
01:00
that’s a great thing and that’s a great
01:02
advantage uh to use in in within the
01:05
system but from the minute we get the
01:07
case we are looking at
01:09
what would happen on this issue if we go
01:11
to trial what have i seen on similar
01:14
cases what have i seen judges in the
01:16
area do on similar disputed issues and
01:19
what was the outcome on those cases so
01:21
that way i can advise the client what
01:23
the risk and what the reward is at trial
01:27
so that way they can inform themselves
01:29
and and know whether it makes sense to
01:32
settle their case or it makes sense to
01:33
go to trial
