Civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties. Legal matters proceed to trial when they cannot be resolved in another manner. The majority of cases are settled without a trial, but if a case proceeds to trial every client deserves an attorney who is comfortable, confident, and knowledgeable in the courtroom. The courtroom is a scary place for many attorneys but it is where lawyer Staci McCarthy feels most comfortable. She has spent the majority of her career fighting for her clients in the courtrooms in Oregon, Washington, and California.
Each state, courtroom, and judge has particular rules that apply in their respective courtrooms. Some rules are written but often the most important rules are unwritten. Good trial attorneys know the unwritten rules and the specific judge’s preferences. At McCarthy Law we know the unwritten rules.
