TRIAL PRACTICE AND CONSULTING

TRIAL PRACTICE AND CONSULTING

A DRAMA IN REAL LIFE, IN REAL TIME.

Trials are like staging a play with an unpredictable audience and no second chances. We understand these dynamics and know how to use them to our client’s benefit. We are real trial lawyers, not just litigators.

EXPERIENCE. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE.

The art of effective advocacy, written, oral, and visual, is what we do. We actually try cases. Lots of cases. Something that many lawyers with a litigation practice seldom do. All of our lawyers share something in common, a personality and character that allows them to relate to jurors, witnesses, and clients from every background and perspective.

We play the role of translators and story tellers, understanding our client’s case and fashioning the most effective way possible to communicate that to our audience, whether it is a jury, a single judge, or a panel of judges in an appellate court.

WINNING PERSONALITIES. WINNING CASES.

Robert Christie has tried scores of cases in diverse jurisdictions, state and federal court, over 36 years of trial practice. He has argued hundreds of successful summary judgment motions that resolved cases in his client’s favor before ever getting to trial.

A TRUE PARTNERSHIP, IN EVERY SENSE.

Mr. Christie and his partners Tom Miller and Ann Trivett have prevailed on scores of summary judgment motions, trials, and arbitrations, ranging from civil rights defense to employment discrimination to wrongful death cases.  Both Tom and Ann have first-chaired major jury trials to successful verdicts.  This depth of real courtroom experience is our stock-in-trade. And your peace of mind.
