Collapse Deskbook - Settling Cases

Many continuing legal education programs and reams of written material are devoted to the nuts and bolts of trying a lawsuit. Though the vast majority of cases settle before trial, there is little information published on the proper procedures for settling a lawsuit. David L. Grebel and Mark B. Grebel, co-authors of Chapter 1.

Missouri Settling Cases is a valuable how-to resource and designed to fill this void. The book is authored by both plaintiff and defense attorneys, providing perspectives from each side of a case as to when and how settlements can be made. Their efforts have resulted in a book that should be on the shelf of every civil practice attorney in Missouri.

Three different statutes may be used to prosecute BWI cases and prosecution can vary depending on what type of watercraft is involved and even by what body of water is involved.
