Settlement Offers and Attorney's Fees

Arizona courts are extremely backlogged with cases. In an attempt to alleviate the court from the burden of having to settle all of the cases by themselves there is a strong attempt to help people settle their cases before going all of the way to trial. The Court has created rules attempting to help people settle these differences.

One such rule is A.R.S. § 12-341.01. This rule states that if a written settlement offer is rejected and a judgment is later obtained for equal or more favorable then the winning party can be awarded attorney’s fees.
