THE LAW OFFICE OF
TRICIA ANNE RAYMOND
The Law Office is located in Flint, Michigan and serves all of Genesee County and some surrounding areas. The goal is to provide clients with legal representation at a reasonable cost, focused on high quality work and individual attention. The office is always prepared for trial work when it is required. However, most cases through diligent negotiations will settle without a trial.
WHY IS A TRIAL ATTTORNEY AND EXPERIENCED NEGOTIATOR IMPORTANT?
An attorney must always be willing, experienced and prepared for trial, when no other option presented has a good outcome. However, clients must understand that a trial should be the last resort. WHY? Because a trial will either be a Bench trial or a Jury Trial, and when you place a decision out of your control, the outcome can never be guaranteed. Any Attorney who guarantees results is misleading their clients. A good experienced negotiator is as important as a good experienced trial attorney.
WHAT IS A BENCH TRIAL? Is when the Judge becomes the fact finder and determines the verdict.
WHAT IS A JURY TRIAL? Is when Jurors are selected and become the fact finders and determine the verdict.
WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE AN ATTORNEY? All clients, issues and cases are not "one size fits all". Attorneys have to be members of and are monitored through the State Bar Association. They a qualified by the State and in some cases the United States Courts in order to practice law. Always be cautious of "one size fits all" solutions that are advertised. These include pre-packaged court papers to file and non-lawyers giving legal advice; if you didn't know this is called the unauthorized practice of law and is illegal.
