Hybrid Attorneys

Most skilled attorneys in the family law arena are hybrids. 80% of our divorce and family law cases get settled. There is a movement in Texas that is called collaborative law, where attorneys are saying we won’t go to court. But for that 20% that go to trial you have to have somebody who has the experience, who has been to trial, done jury trials, and an awful a lot of attorneys, because 80% of them settle, may only have one or two jury trials in their whole life. They may not have many final trials in the last two or three years, because they’ve settled all their cases, but if you have a case where you have to go to court because the other side is just putting you in a position that’s unattainable, then you have to have an attorney that has the experience to go there.
