Consistent with our goal of providing cost effective legal representation, we strive to resolve litigation without the need to proceed with costly discovery/trials.  However, disputes inevitably arise which simply are not able to be resolved through settlement or summary adjudication.  In those cases, we are ready and willing to aggressively advocate on the client’s behalf, all the way through the trial and appeal process (if necessary).  James D. Claytor has been involved in approximately one hundred (100) trials during the course of his approximately thirty five (35) year litigation career.
