'Trial' Lawyers Become A Thing of the Past

Minnesota Lawyer, by Michelle Lore

In the last decade, the percentage of civil cases actually tried has dipped by more than a third.

Lawyers are taking fewer cases to trial than ever before. In fact, in the last decade alone the number of civil cases tried in Minnesota declined by 35 percent. At the same time, the number of civil case dispositions continued to climb, meaning that more and more cases are being resolved outside the trial process. (Trials now occur in less than four percent of civil cases.) The dramatic downward trend in civil trials holds true for other jurisdictions as well.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
