New Jersey


At Shane & White, LLC, we often remind our clients that we will prepare your case for trial—even if our goal is never to take them there. What does that mean? More than 99 percent of legal disputes are resolved through settlement negotiations. Most of the time, settlement is the best possible outcome for the parties involved because it gives them control over the outcome without the expense of going to trial.

However, a full and fair settlement is not achieved without the possibility of trial. The parties and their lawyers look to the likely outcome of a trial to drive settlement negotiations. For example, if an injury victim would be highly likely to win at trial and receive a larger verdict from a judge or jury, the negligent driver’s insurance company would be motivated to make a settlement offer to avoid the courtroom.

Our Appeals Work

Unfortunately, it happens sometimes: A bad outcome at trial can have a significant and negative effect on your life. It may be possible to appeal the decision, i.e. asking a higher court to overrule or modify the decision of a trial court. At Shane & White, LLC, we practice appellate law as well, reviewing the case record, drafting the appeal and appearing at oral argument. We can help turn negative outcomes around.

Mr. White did an excellent job in all aspects of my case. Unfortunately, I had dealt with a lawyer previously who left my case in limbo. Mr. White picked up the pieces and through diligent work and good communication with me, I ended up with a favorable settlement and joint custody of my children. Mr. White’s prices were fair.
