Jury Trial Lawyers in Fort Worth, Texas

We Can Take Your Case to Court Before a Judge & Jury

Virtually any legal case or claim can eventually go to court if a settlement or agreement can’t be reached at some point along the way. What you might not know is that many law firms aren’t equipped to take cases into litigation and before a judge and jury due to a lack of resources, time, or experience.

Representing Plaintiffs & Defendants

In any trial, two sides oppose each other in court before a judge, and oftentimes, before a jury. Typically, plaintiffs oppose defendants, but the terminology can differ depending on the case type. For example, in a criminal trial, the defendant presents the “defense case” to challenge the prosecution, which presents the “people’s case” or “state’s case.” Regardless of the phrasing used, jury trials pit two opposing parties against each other, with each side trying to convince the jury that their side is correct or justified.

At Law Offices Of Mark M. Childress, we have the experience, talents, and resources required to offer legal representation to parties on either side of a jury trial. Typically, we are hired to act as the defense counsel for a defendant in a criminal trial, or as the plaintiff counsel for an injured party in a personal injury trial. However, jury trials span many different aspects of the law, and all sorts of situations can come up in which a plaintiff or defendant needs trial representation, and we’re always ready to step in where we’re needed.

Family Law Trials in Texas

Texas is one of the few states that can allow a jury trial for certain family law cases. If your family law case is contested or complicated, it may end up before a judge and jury for a resolution. Make sure that the law firm you choose for representation knows the ins and outs of jury trials for family law cases and lawsuits, like we do at Law Offices Of Mark M. Childress.

A jury trial may be used to resolve family law conflicts involving:

  • Property division
  • Conservatorship
  • Child custody
  • And more

Pre-Trial Preparation

Jury trials don’t happen abruptly and unexpectedly. Instead, the court will set a date for the trial, which gives both sides time to prepare their cases and arguments. The date might be set a few weeks or months later, or even years in the future under unusual circumstances. To make certain you use whatever time you have for pre-trial preparation well, put our Fort Worth jury trial attorneys in charge.

We can handle all parts of pre-trial preparation, which usually includes:

  • Investigating the circumstances of the case if we were not already hired to provide pre-trial counsel.
  • Coordinating with any parties that might have already investigated the case or situation.
  • Managing the discovery process if this applies to the trial type.
  • Submitting motions or plea bargains (for criminal defense cases) to the court.
  • Attending any preliminary hearings or mandatory mediation meetings that have been scheduled.

Overall, the pre-trial preparation phase can look quite different from one case type to the next, such as when comparing personal injury trials to criminal defense trials. To make sure you will be ready for every step, regardless of the legal situation you are in, let Law Offices Of Mark M. Childress lead the way.

Help with Jury Selection

Jury selection – called voir dire in some legal contexts – is a critical step in a jury trial. After all, the outcome of a jury trial rests on the jury’s verdict. Once a verdict has been rendered by the jury in a trial – criminal, civil (personal injury), family law, and so on – the judge cannot overrule it. An appeal might overturn or reverse the jury verdict later, but for the time being, the jury’s verdict is all-important, so the jury selection process must be seen the same way.

At Law Offices Of Mark M. Childress, we recognize the importance of jury selection and how it will directly impact your case. Our jury trial lawyers are highly familiar with the jury selection process from start to finish. We know how to identify potential jurors who can hear the case from a fair and impartial perspective, so they do not jeopardize the trial in a way that unfairly benefits the opposition.

During jury selection, we can ask potential jurors:

  • General questions about their awareness of the plaintiff and defendant.
  • Specific questions related to the case.
  • Probing questions to uncover concerning biases or personal histories.
  • Follow-up questions to challenge any unsuitable remarks from the other side’s attorney.

Questions for the jurors in voir dire need to be worded specifically to avoid any accusations from the opposition or any legal missteps. Leave this delicate process up to our attorneys, so you can be confident that your jury trial or your client’s jury trial will be fair.
