Years of Experience Trying Complex Cases
AZA is first and foremost a trial firm. Our nearly 50 lawyers have been in a trial roughly every month since 2016, despite courthouse closures because of Hurricane Harvey. We tried 23 cases total in the years 2018 and 2019. We’ve already had two successful trial in 2020. Our courtroom experience, our knowledge of what will matter to a jury or judge, and our command of trial technology permit us to do this efficiently. Being trial-ready also strongly influences settlement. Opponents recognize that with more than 225 trials under our belts, we have confidence in our position and our ability to advocate that position. In fact, AZA is often hired on the eve of trial, once it has become clear that the case must be tried.
