What Is A Trial Lawyer?
We have all seen a movie or television show where lawyers go head-to-head in the courtroom. Most believe a trial lawyer spends all day presenting their case to a jury. While the lawyers at Knight Nicastro MacKay, LLC, spend a lot of time in the courtroom, the courtroom drama is only a fraction of the day-to-day duties of a trial lawyer.
Trial lawyers spend considerable amounts of time outside of the courtroom reviewing documents, speaking with witnesses, and drafting pleadings to frame the factual and legal issues of a case. Those facts and issues support their client’s position and must be arranged and communicated in ways that can be best understood by a judge and jury.
Even though many hours are devoted to preparing a case for trial, most cases are settled and never make it to the courtroom. Because of this, many “trial lawyers” have not had the opportunity to present a case in front of a jury. This is not true for the trial lawyers at Knight Nicastro MacKay, LLC.
Our attorneys regularly try cases in multiple jurisdictions throughout the country. They use their experience and acquired talent to engage in effective confrontation and assertive tactics while maintaining a personable and professional demeanor to best present the clients’ position at trial.
