Litigators | Negotiators | Problem Solvers

The best negotiators are skilled litigators. They know how to back up every settlement demand with a firm stance in court. At Avila & Shaddow, in Woodland Hills, we have a reputation for accepting only cases with merit, for exhaustive preparation and for successful pretrial and litigation strategies.

When opposing counsel faces our Los Angeles area employment and personal injury attorneys, they are fully aware that if a reasonable resolution or settlement is not achieved, our attorneys will take the case to trial with one goal in mind — winning! Work with us to make sure your case is handled with professionalism and skill.

Why Hire Avila & Shaddow Attorneys At Law?

At Avila & Shaddow Attorneys at Law, we are successful trial lawyers because:

  • We litigate our cases like a large law firm. We are not intimidated by a large corporate law firm or insurance company. We look forward to the opportunity to represent our clients with commitment, strength and preparation. Our opposition is often at a disadvantage when we strike first or strike back.
  • We are realistic and solid negotiators. Today, nearly all cases settle unless there exist unrealistic expectations or unreasonable valuations. We remain open-minded and reasonable during negotiation so that when settlement is discussed with the other side, good communication, knowledge and mutual respect make resolution more likely. When settlement is not an option, we will be ready to let a trial decide the outcome.
  • We excel at finding additional causes of action and defenses. When our clients come to us with a particular claim or theory of a case, we often find additional issues during the investigation process. Additional causes of action can buttress an existing case or build a new one.
  • We develop good, straightforward relationships with opposing counsel, as well as with our clients. Our thorough preparation, respectful and reasonable attitude, and successful track record encourage a litigation dialog that is constructive and geared toward resolution. Let our experience and reputation help you reach your goals. We are wise and efficient with our time and our clients' resources. Most importantly, our no-nonsense, practiced approach is well-received by the judges who preside over our clients' cases.
