ANSWER: You do. Lawyers cannot ethically settle or try cases without their clients’ consent. Instead, your attorney’s job is to make recommendations regarding trial and settlement based on the facts and circumstances of your individual case. You will be involved in any decision to settle your case, and will have every opportunity to voice your own opinion about what should be done. We have many years of experience to draw upon in evaluating your chances for victory and the range of likely awards. We also have tools that assist us in placing a fair value on your case.
