The Outlaw Firm excels in negotiating and mediating settlements through a combination of patience, perseverance, and persuasion.
A lawsuit begins with a Petition , followed by an Answer and often a Counterclaim. Georgia Law then allows 6 months of Discovery before a case is put on a trial calendar.
Georgia law and public policy encourages parties to settle their cases before trial to eliminate risk, avoid unnecessary expense, and reach a satisfactory compromise.
The Outlaw Firm excels in negotiating and mediating settlements through a combination of patience, perseverance, and persuasion. Most courts provide Alternative Dispute Resolution services, and we prepare ourselves and our clients for mediation or arbitration with knowledge of the facts and the law that shape successful outcomes.
The vast majority of our cases settle. We approach negotiation and mediation with skill, experience, effort, and strategy that help settle cases. Lead Counsel Blue Spruell is a Georgia certified mediator and uses his mediation skills to negotiate favorable settlements for our clients.
The Outlaw Firm has a reputation for winning at trial, which also helps in negotiating a settlement of all contested issues.
Not all cases can be settled.
There is a saying among lawyers that when a case goes to trial, at least one of the parties or one of the lawyers is a risk-taking fool because, just like competitive athletics, there can be only one “winner.”
If your case is destined for trial, The Outlaw Firm will do its best to minimize your risk. We do that with a combination of procedural skills (we have avoided a number of trials with legal procedural victories), preparation (there is no substitute for knowing the law and the facts) and persuasion.
Knowing what to present to the judge or jury and how to show and tell a client’s story is precisely how The Outlaw Firm wins at trial.
