Which Cases Go to Trial? Do Cases Resolve Outside of Court?

Video Transcript:

Petrillo: What cases go to trial and what cases resolve outside of court? Do cases resolve outside of court?

Goldberg: Well, the short answer is yes. Statistically, most cases, the overwhelming number of cases that come before us do settle beforehand. Which cases settle? There’s no way of knowing. So what our philosophy has always been is that when we bring in a case, we want to make sure it’s a legitimate case, where there is liability, meaning somebody else has wronged someone and from a legal place, there is a reason to bring a lawsuit, and then that there’s damages that aren’t minor, that aren’t of a limited basis, that are of substantial basis. If those two things are there, we believe it has merit. We prepare each case as if each case is going to go to trial. Most cases don’t, but we’re ready for those cases that do.
