We Fight !

A Jury Trial is a “Bar Room Brawl”

If you don’t get a fair settlement offer, your lawyer has to be willing to go to court.  If the case doesn’t settle in court, your lawyer has to go the distance – you need a trial lawyer.  A “litigation firm” focuses on preparing a case for trial but often does not have the experience to actually follow through in the trial courtroom.

Alameda County Judge, Tom Rogers once compared a jury trial to “a bar room brawl“.  When negotiation, mediation and good faith all fail, you need a courtroom fighter with a national reputation.  Daniel Horowitz has that reputation.
