A lot of cases do go to trial. I’ve tried many cases and won a lot of them and lost a few of them, so, yes, there are winners and there are losers, but more often than not, there’s a compromise.

Sometimes the conflicts are too deep and too painful and especially after litigation, so the people settle the money dispute, but the family harmony is irretrievably broken.
