Trial is the time when all the information gathered by both sides are presented to the Judge. This is where the experience of your attorney is key, as law school does not teach a student how to perform in the courtroom, its all on the job training. Knowing how to cross-examine witnesses and stop the other party from having damaging documents entered into evidence as part of an overall trial strategy can make or break your case. Put another way, do you want to be your heart surgeon's first heart operation or do you want the surgeon who has already completed ten thousand or more?
