Why Settle for Less?
Fierce New York Criminal Defense Lawyer
Not every case can be settled. The reality is that sometimes a fair and
just result is not offered, no matter which attorney you hire. That is
why you need to hire an attorney that has the trial skills and trial experience
to protect you if negotiations fail.
Richard Southard uses his years of sales and sales management experience
to negotiate favorable plea bargains and large cash settlements for his
clients. He recognizes that sometimes the result a client wants may never
be offered. That is why Richard Southard prides himself on building a
successful trial strategy from the day of each client’s initial
consultation. This includes aggressive investigation and up to the minute
legal research to insure a successful result.
Believe it or not, some so-called “trial” attorneys have never
tried a case. In fact, some attorneys will do whatever it takes to avoid
having to go to trial. The danger is that their clients are pressured
to take a plea that they don’t want or forced to accept cash settlements
that are less than they deserve. At the Law Office of Richard Southard,
the decision of when or if to settle a case rests solely with the client.
It is a lawyer’s role to advise the client on the strengths and
weaknesses of the evidence, explain the laws of New York in terms they
can understand, and to point out the advantages and disadvantages of settling.
Prosecutors and insurance companies know which attorneys are afraid to
try a case and they make their settlement offers accordingly.
Why settle for an attorney who can only settle cases? Trust an attorney
that starts developing your trial strategy from the very first consultation.
