We Go To Trial
While most civil litigation is ultimately resolved out of court, you can’t bluff your way to a good result. At Schroeder Schaff & Low, we are not paper tigers who fold at the threat of litigation. In fact, we take more cases to trial than nearly any firm, including a notable percentage of our defense cases.
Our attorneys are battle-tested and thoroughly prepare each case for trial. Our willingness to go to trial adds value for our clients, whether we are at the negotiation table or stating our case to a jury. We handle a wide spectrum of civil litigation and appeals, representing individuals, nonprofits, businesses and insurers in the Sacramento area and throughout California.
