My ex is a textbook narcissist out to "win" this process, and her lawyer is a textbook negative advocate. So, high conflict.

At a high level, would you (all) suggest avoiding case and settlement conferences as much as possible? Can/should I push for a trial as early as possible? Or does the process require a long slog before trial becomes an option?

To be clear, I have a good lawyer. Just thinking about my long-term strategy and appreciate input from anyone who's in a similar high-conflict situation.
