Why Experience Is So Important

I am Gregory J. Williams, a Connecticut lawyer with extensive experience. In fact, I have been litigating cases for more than 20 years. But why is experience so important? What difference does it make to your situation?

Here are just a few of the many potential benefits of choosing a lawyer who is at home in the courtroom:

  • It gives you options. Many contentious legal issues can be successfully resolved through mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). However, ADR methods don't always work. Sometimes, it is imperative that you go to court to obtain the best results. In these cases, you need a lawyer like me who can take your case all the way to trial.
  • It gives you power. When it comes to negotiating with opposing counsel or insurance companies, trial experience is key. Many times, the other side would much rather provide a better settlement offer or a better compromise than engage in costly litigation. A lawyer who actually tries cases puts you in a position of power during such negotiations.
  • It gives you a voice. If you are a victim of injustice, you deserve to be heard. The wrong done to you deserves to be recognized and acknowledged. If you simply accept a settlement offer, you may be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement, which means you lose the right to make the injustice public. A trial, on the other hand, lets you speak up and tell the world what happened.
