Lawyers, Help Your Clients Move On

People who have actually served on juries love to share their experiences with other potential jurors. One of the universal threads running through the tales of trials past is that jurors are amazed at how long the case had been pending before the parties were actually assembled in the courtroom before a jury of their peers. Six or seven years is not at all uncommon. When I was actively practicing  law, I think I may have topped 10 years before one of my cases was finally resolved!

Think about that. For seven long years, the client has had to face each day with a nagging worry in the back of his mind. It is impossible to get on with his life until the lawsuit is resolved.

A quick resolution is one of the most beneficial aspects of mediation — just get together in a room and work it out!

Lawyers, make your clients love you. Resolve their case quickly so that they can move on with their lives.
