Yes, we litigate, and we take cases to trial — against some of the biggest corporations on the planet. Conflict is part of life and part of the competitive marketplace. However, it is critical to remember that litigation is just one way to resolve a dispute.
The overwhelming majority of Complaints filed never make it to trial. Some estimates are that 99.5% of disputes do NOT go to trial. Of course, some people just like to fight, and for those few, we’re happy to oblige on behalf of our clients. However, for the overwhelming majority of disputes entering the legal system, the parties are better served by reaching a settlement — a fair, reasonable, full-value settlement that factors in the time-value of money and litigation risk — sooner rather than later.
Adishian Law Group has established a reputation throughout the State of California for being exceptional settlement attorneys.
To be clear, by “settlement” we don’t mean folding, walking away or acccepting pennies on the dollar. We mean a settlement that gives fair, reasonable, full-value to the parties’ claims and defenses factoring in the time-value of money and litigation risk; a settlement that allows everyone to move forward with their lives rather than continue to litigate.
In fact, we have achieved successful results for a number of clients whose prior attorneys were unable to generate any value for the client’s claim, or actually told the client that they were simply “out of luck.”
In other cases, the client was not sure if they had a claim, or simply may not have been able to engage in litigation to vindicate their rights in a court of law.
In one such case, we represented an individual who had purchased a luxury home in Southern California for over $1,000,000. Unfortunately, the seller failed to disclose that a significant portion of the property was built over his neighbors property line. Within five months we negotiated a nearly $200,000 settlement for our client via a one-day mediation. The claims were resolved without the fees, costs, risk and time associated with litigation. We never filed a complaint.
