Marquette Lawyer Fall 2017 magazine recently published a piece titled, Hardly Trying: The Declining Use of Civil Trials in Wisconsin (PDF) where the author, Larry Sandler, took a deeper look at the rapidly dwindling number of civil trials in the state. Back in 2004, there were 536 civil trials held in Wisconsin – in 2016, only 269 trials were held. Now, an increasing number of these cases are being settled out of court. Sandler spoke extensively with attorney Patrick Dunphy, a leading legal expert in Wisconsin.
The economic incentive in a high-volume practice is quick turnover,” which leads to more settlements and fewer trials, Dunphy said. That is not how Cannon & Dunphy operates. It is not about “quick turnover”. Cannon & Dunphy is about working hard and taking the time to get the client full value for the injury, not whatever the insurance company offers.
