Litigation

In complex litigation, twin energies - preparation and persuasion - usually dwarf all factual, legal, or personal elements in achieving a successful outcome. The first is a matter of rigorousness and determination; the second, a matter of experience and art. 

For Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek litigators, superb preparation is the foundation for obtaining a cost-effective resolution for a client, whether through early settlement, pre-trial hearings, or an appearance before a judge, jury, administrative law judge, or arbitration panel. 

Yet persuasiveness - the art of helping someone see why they should hold in your favor - has again and again helped make the most of our disciplined preparation on a client’s behalf.

The firm pioneered development of proprietary trial-presentation software that can make dramatic use of information at trial. In the hands of our top SCMV litigators, it allows complex information to be presented in ways most conducive to understanding and retention, and it enables instant recall and presentation of audio-visual segments - a perfect adjunct for capitalizing on preparedness and persuasiveness.
