Whether you are potential client looking to hire a lawyer, or a lawyer needing to refer a client to a trial lawyer for a case, the question is the same: Why choose Cochran & Edwards for your case?
We can and will try your case if necessary. Having practiced at and against many major law firms over the years, it is shocking how many partners at major law firms have never stood up in court and said “ladies and gentlemen of the jury….” We have. Perhaps the single most important question to ask is “Will you be the lawyer that tries my case if we go to trial?” If the answer is “no”, you are talking to the wrong lawyer. We are competitors and we love going to court. And while we will pursue all settlement options, we prepare all cases from day one as if it will go to trial. We prefer alternative fee arrangements where some or all of our fees are contingent on the results we achieve rather than the amount of time we spend. This includes negative contingencies for primarily defensive matters. That way, our interests are aligned with yours and we don’t waste our time and your money with needless discovery or pre-trial motions.
We are experienced Attorneys. When you hire us, you will have at least one lawyer with more than 20 years of experience in handling Commercial and Complex Business Litigation, Catastrophic Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation, Real Estate Litigation, and Consumer Class Action cases. We are not like many big firms who bring in young lawyers with no courtroom experience with billable-hour quotas to meet. Our attorneys will be there in each and every deposition and court appearance and you can feel comfortable that your case is in qualified legal hands.
