What Makes Tressler’s Labor and Employment Lawyers Unique

Fact: The overwhelming majority of employment law cases are resolved without trial. Our attorneys are conflict resolution specialists and in many instances we are able to resolve cases without need for an expensive mediation. To assist clients to solve their litigation problems quickly we start thinking of resolution strategies as early as possible. We explore strengths and weaknesses of each case at the outset and start discussing options for exploration of resolution. At Tressler, we help our clients make good business decisions and provide best practices recommendations for risk-adverse outcomes. Specifically, in California, we often use Offers to Compromise pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure Section 998 (or in Federal Court Rule 68) to leverage settlement and force opposing counsel to take a realistic assessment of their risks in proceeding with litigation. We also have conversations with opposing counsel to educate them about the weaknesses of their case and to persuade them to resolve matters. When litigation is necessary, Tressler attorneys have the experience to aggressively protect our clients. In the rare occasion a trial is required, we have a proven trial record of success.
