How we Work You
Step 1 – Intake
Triage. When presented with a new client matter Davalos Law Firm (DLF) assesses the goals of the client, any pressing issues, court dates or deadlines. A conflict check is conducted and a retainer agreement offered to the potential client.
Step 2 – STRATEGYClient goals are identified, strengths and weaknesses of the case are categorized and a timeline of events is established. Each of these steps creates the roadmap for DLF’s strategy of an attack and/or defense.
STEP 3 – IMPLEMENTATION
Pleadings are drafted and served. Contact with opposing parties is made to develop a rapport and when necessary establish boundaries. A discovery plan is developed by DLF and deadlines for execution of discovery are determined. Foresight into any possible issues or special motions are considered and litigation ensues.
Step 4 – LitigationDLF proceeds to ferret out the truth in each matter by seeking out all relevant and discoverable evidence available to the Client. Subpoenas, depositions, requests for inspection and other discovery methods are employed to amplify and harmonize DLF litigation strategy with Client goals.
Step 5 – SETTLEMENT CONFERENCES
After the discovery process is completed, alternatives to trial are proposed. In some matters judicial arbitration may be ordered. In others, the parties may agree that the uncertainty of trial dictates the parties attempt mediation. This is the last chance to end the case before the matter is placed into the hands of the fact finder(s).
Step 6 – TRIAL
DLF prepares vigorously for trial by meeting with each client, reviewing all discovery and evidence and preparing the Client by running scenarios, testing Client preparedness and memory and also challenging the Client in high stress scenarios. Ultimately, DLF seeks judgment and zealously advocates all the way through to a strong finish.
