Know When You are Wasting Your Time
The more I practice, the more I realize that sometimes you are wasting your time trying to negotiate. With insurance companies, if the first offer is the medicals plus a $1,000.00, it is better to just file suit. If the first offer on a divorce case involves no visitation with the kids and paying 70% of income to soon to be former spouse, time to get a scheduling order and set for trial. Typically, most cases do settle. However, sometimes the best way to resolve a case in a favorable manner is to get it moving toward a trial date which gets both parties more reasonable.
