We prepare every matter, from the beginning, on the assumption it will be tried to verdict. All of our partners are experienced trial lawyers; among them are two Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers and a Member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Viewing the case through the lens of trial serves our clients well, whether or not the case ultimately is tried: even in settlement, you cannot succeed if you have not prepared to win at trial.
The GTTC lawyer you hire is the lawyer who does your work. We do not hire associates right out of law school. We have consciously avoided the “pyramid” model, with many junior lawyers reporting to a small number of senior partners. Our partners roll up their sleeves, do the work, and know the facts and law, period.
A lawyer’s greatest asset is his or her judgment—that which is earned predominantly by standing in court, presenting evidence, and persuading judges and juries. GTTC lawyers exercise judgment by focusing on the client’s ultimate objective and avoiding minor but costly battles that do not advance that objective. Our 22-year track record has proven the value of this approach to our clients.
