Tried and True
Over the last decade, the popular trend has been to settle cases rather than go to trial. As a result, the jury trial – once the venerated backbone of the American legal system – is becoming the exception rather than the rule. While Sayles Werbner recognizes that a sizable and fair settlement is often in our clients’ best interest, the firm is still best known for its reputation in the courtroom and is often retained by other lawyers to join a trial team shortly before a case goes to trial. The reason is simple: we’ve tried more cases than most, and our experience is widely acknowledged.
Our many impressive verdicts, several involving an award of large punitive damages, are a testament to our ability to present facts to a jury. And we’ve mounted successful defenses on behalf of major corporations as well as small, family-owned businesses. Consider this sampling of multimillion-dollar jury verdicts obtained for our clients.
