Even though all litigation by its very nature involves risk and uncertainty, O’Connor and Associates is willing to provide focused projections of likely success that will often become more certain as trial approaches. It is a core philosophy of the firm that significant trial experience is crucial not only in devising successful litigation strategies but also in evaluating accurately the likelihood of success at trial.
