Hardly anyone initiates a lawsuit with the desire to go to trial, since protracted litigation is usually more stressful, time-consuming, and costly than settling a case. However, sometimes fighting it out in court is the only way to adequately stand up for your legal rights or fully recover for injuries you have suffered. At Kochan & Kochan, P.C., we are never afraid to take your case all the way to the trial stage if trial is necessary to make sure you get the outcome you deserve. We do attempt to resolve legal matters outside the courtroom through negotiations and the settlement process. However, we know that sometimes negotiations do not pan out as planned, and so we always diligently work on every case with the possibility of trial in mind. This means that, should trial end up being necessary, we will be thoroughly prepared to stand up for your legal rights. We have extensive trial experience and Mark Kochan has received many favorable verdicts, including a not guilty verdict in a murder trial. As a former prosecutor, Mark Kochan is extremely familiar with the trial process and how to get you the best results at trial.

The attorneys at our firm consistently prepare the highest quality legal writing in every pleading, motion, and brief we file with the court on your behalf. We guide you through every step of the litigation process and counsel you on every decision you have to make. We are experienced with a wide range of legal matters, including:
