Defining Success In Civil Litigation Cases

Attorneys often say that anything can happen once a case goes to trial. It is important to be prepared for every possibility. Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant in your case, it can be crucial to have the help of professionals who are highly experienced in civil litigation.

At Matthews & Higgins, we concentrate our practice in litigation. Our experience guides us in counseling clients on how to avoid litigation when advisable, how to prepare for it when inevitable, how to settle it when necessary, and how to win cases when they go to court.

Knowing what it takes to win is critical. In addition to knowing the court personnel in our region, we know how to select a jury, how to prepare for trial, and how to present the
kind of compelling evidence that helps today's sophisticated jurors clarify the issues that decide a case.

Rooted In The Community With Extensive Local Knowledge

Our firm's community relationships give us an innate understanding of the cultural factors that influence jurors' points of view. This kind of insight proves invaluable in helping clients achieve successful outcomes throughout the region. Our access to medical, scientific, and other kinds of experts is an integral part of our success in court.

To this end, we have developed long-standing relationships with top experts in a range of fields throughout the country. We conduct focus group sessions to ensure we have explored all aspects of public opinion, and we use the results to prepare clients and subject-matter experts during mock trials. In addition, state-of-the-art trial exhibits, models, and computer simulations help to further enhance our efforts in the courtroom. We leverage the benefits of technology to maximize our efficiency in all aspects of case management.
