Courtroom Confidential’s “The Right Stuff Series” is a 5-part series dedicated to helping you to find the lawyer with the right stuff for your case by examining 5 of the most important characteristics of a great lawyer! Co-hosted by Daniel Crespo and Michael D’Andrea, litigation partners at the premier law firm Bremer Whyte Brown & O’Meara, in this episode you learn the lesson of why it’s important that you hire a lawyer who is an experienced negotiator.

Daniel and Michael are the hiring partners in the Los Angeles office and the qualities that they recommend clients look for when researching lawyers are the same skills they look for when interviewing new applicants. Through their cautionary tales you will learn why the best litigator is a skilled negotiator.
The reality is most cases do not go to trial within one week after the case is filed like on television. Taking a case from date of file to trial can be long drive down litigation lane, which is why a vast majority of them settle long before trial. Having a lawyer who is an adept, savvy, and strategic negotiator can make all the difference for the outcome in your case.
