Litigation Attorney Experience and Skills
As a successful litigator for over a decade, litigation attorney Christian Waugh understands that achieving a favorable outcome in a court case depends on a lot more than just knowing the law. Litigation requires an aggressive approach. But it also requires the insight to know when discreet and subtle pugnacity will be more effective than an outright assault on the opposing party or attorney.
As a seasoned trial lawyer, Christian also knows that he must not leave anything on the field at any stage of the litigation. He is meticulous in pursuing evidence and conducting a thorough analysis of all relevant facts and information, as well as in preparing and presenting evidence in court.
Getting all the facts on the record is important for another reason. In a court action, winning is always the overarching goal. But a plaintiff is never assured of victory. Many things can — and do — go wrong in litigation. In some cases, an appeal may be necessary to cure errors at trial. Whether an appeal is successful depends entirely on the record created in the court below. For that reason, Christian concentrates on leaving no stone unturned at every stage of a case. He fights vigorously to win in the trial court, while laying solid groundwork in the record if an appeal becomes necessary. Whether in the pretrial stages, during negotiations, or at trial before a judge or jury, Christian’s goal is to get all the facts favorable to the client indelibly on the record. He draws on those facts to provide the judge or jury with a legal and logical basis for deciding the case in favor of his client — or to persuade the opponent to agree to favorable settlement terms, in appropriate situations.
All of these skills (and others as well) contribute to success in litigation. Throughout every case, Christian Waugh draws on his extensive litigation experience and utilizes his finely-tuned skills to full advantage as part of his unrelenting effort to win the case.
