I was in the same situation. I accepted the offer but told thw new firm I would not be able to start until the trial was over. The new firm was totally cool with it and I am working there now. (And the mattered settled three days before trial, to no one's surprise.)

Callback is next week, for anyone wanting an update 🤙🏼
