Fritz Seitz and Mike Lawler Interviewed on Radio Show "Champions of Justice"

LOS ANGELES  – Two of the firm’s trial attorneys, Friedrich W. Seitz and Michael B. Lawler, described as “two of the most important defense attorneys in this town,” were recently featured as guest speakers on KRLA 870 radio show, Champions of Justice.

Hosted by renowned plaintiff attorneys, Thomas V. Girardi and Robert Finnerty, Mr. Seitz and Mr. Lawler were invited to give the defense “its day” on Champions of Justice.

“They come into a case and, as far as we’re concerned, the value of that case diminishes because we know several things: we know they can try the lawsuit, we know that they can be every bit as clever as you, they’re going to have the right experts, they’re going to have all that stuff,” Mr. Girardi said of the M&C attorneys.

Show highlights included a discussion on the merits of practicing courtroom etiquette.

“You get a lot of cases where it’s a dog fight, and it doesn’t have to be a dog fight,” Mr. Lawler said on the topic of contentious attorneys.

They also discussed when it is appropriate to settle and when to take a case to trial.

“I’ve had cases where we’ve tried the cases and prevailed, and we should have prevailed. There are many cases out there that have no merit,” said Mr. Lawler.

“One of the things that we put a large emphasis on is to look at a case and try to get an early valuation before all of these expenses are incurred,” Mr. Seitz added in regards to the cost of litigation.

Past Champions of Justice guest speakers include Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the Central District of California Audrey Collins, and legal clerk and environmental activist Erin Brockovich.

Champions of Justice airs every weekend in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino, San Francisco and Sacramento, discussing legal issues facing Americans today with special guests in the legal and political fields.
