It really depends on the particular lawyer's habits and the case involved; for example if there is new evidence, or expert witnesses that fly in that need additional prepping, the week of trial can be much more time consuming. Otherwise the weeks leading up to, particularly the last week, is the "cram session" so to speak.

A trial can be bifurcated so that one issue is heard separately from all the others- usually necessary if there is a determination that needs to be made to affect all of the other issues.

Otherwise normally the trial will be calendered with consecutive dates unless the court has a conflict or other procedure (each judge dictates their schedule so certain days/times may be reserved for certain motions - such as ex parte motions, for example).

Thanks for the information. Seems that both periods can be very busy? May I ask last question: is the lawyer most relaxed the week after the trial is finished?

Yes, both periods can be very busy (it also depends on their other case load and if they are able to clear their schedule or if their other clients have any emergencies).

Yes, unless the court (judge or jury) does not render a decision immediately - then even if one has more "free" time there is still that issue weighing on them.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
