Juries or Bench Trials in Business Litigation? A Critical Decision

Under most circumstances involving business litigation disputes, the decision whether to ask for a jury, or alternatively to simply have a Judge decide the case, is an important one.  There is never a cut-and-dried answer as to which approach is best.  Buffington Law Firm's business litigation attorneys have tried many business litigation cases both with juries and as court or "bench" trials, i.e. trials decided solely by a Judge.

You are afraid that if you get your own attorney, it could escalate things. However, if there is a trust dispute you are already in an escalated situation.
