Years of Experience Trying Complex Cases
AZA is first and foremost a trial firm. Our 40-plus lawyers are in a jury trial roughly once a month, having completed 13 jury trials last year and five in the first four months of 2017. Our courtroom experience, our knowledge of what will matter to a jury or judge, and our command of trial technology permit us to do this efficiently. Being trial-ready also strongly influences settlement. Opponents recognize that with more than 225 trials under our belts, we have confidence in our position and our ability to advocate that position. In fact, AZA is often hired on the eve of trial, once it has become clear that the case must be tried.
