Pursuing Your Case - FAQs
What is the general timeline for a lawsuit?
Unfortunately, there is no set timeline for a lawsuit. From start to finish, including preparation and trial, a lawsuit could take anywhere from several weeks to several years, depending on the complexity of the case. Some cases settle quickly out of court while others extend to years of appeals. In general, you should expect a lawsuit to last at least several months to a year, all told.
What should I look for in an attorney?
Above all else, you want an attorney you can trust to provide you with sound legal advice and quality legal services. You should also ask for proof of credentials and make sure to find a firm that has experience working with your type of case. Don’t be afraid to ask about your attorney’s philosophy so you get service that meets your criteria and sensibilities. Finally, make sure you understand how communications will work and you have a clear idea of fees.
What do I need to consider before pursuing a lawsuit?
A lawsuit can be a lengthy and expensive process, depending on the case, so you need to make sure you are prepared for the stresses of legal proceedings and you have a strong probability of winning.
Do I have a legitimate claim?
A good lawyer will assess your case, tell you if you have a legitimate claim, explain your options moving forward, and advise you on how best to proceed.
