John Bickel’s

Approach To Litigation

Commercial law firms typically have excess capacity. Many associates and junior partners are added to a core attorney team needlessly. The result is often inefficient and expensive work. It does not have to be that way.

At Bickel PLLC, John Bickel commits to handling your case personally. Practicing nationally, John will select individual lawyers from larger or smaller firms throughout the country. Other than adding a paralegal or two, this will be your team. John will select only the best lawyers for the particular matter involved. One of the keys to getting good results is having the correct people working on your case. Another key is having a top related lawyer on the team.

With more than 40 years of presenting cases to juries nationally and abroad, he will take significant depositions, argue the meaningful hearings, and personally conduct the voir dire and the opening argument of the trial, if a trial is necessary. He reads, reviews, revises, and approves every document filed.
