Another reason lawyers choose not to try cases, thus it dovetails with my previous reason, is that they are afraid. Some lawyers are simply afraid to actually try cases. Losing cost money and paralyzes them, but also standing up in front of a jury, giving a closing argument, takes a lot of fortitude and if they don’t wish to endure it, they will simply choose to talk the client into taking their last offer. Also, the Rules of Civil Procedure are always changing, and re-interrupted by the Appellate Court making it very difficult to keep up with and taking a lot of time and effort that some attorneys are not willing to endure.
Additionally, every judge is different. They have their own interruption, rules, guidelines that can vary widely. Some judges are more inclined to be neutral, some are more Plaintiff oriented and a growing number of judges are very defense oriented. Therefore, with those judges, the lawyer may not just be fighting the Defendant and their lawyer, but in many cases, the trial Judge. This makes many lawyers uncomfortable and they use this as a reason for not trying cases.

All of the attorneys in the office are AV rated by Martindale Hubble which is a peer review rating that less than 1% of trial lawyers are able to obtain.
