Q: What does litigation entail?

The term “litigation” is a generic term used for bringing a lawsuit.  the term "litigation" is  generally used to describe proceedings initiated between two parties when one person or entity has caused a harm or wrong to another person or entity.  Litigation involves everything from writing a demand letter to trial and beyond.  

When considering bringing a lawsuit you need to have a strong and experienced trial attorney.  Because litigation is such a generic term, many attorneys call themselves litigators and have never been to trial.  You know the strength of your case based upon how it will stand at trial.  This does not mean that you will got to trail in every case.  Rather, it means that you need to have bite to the bark of the lawsuit.

Q: What are some if the costs involved?

Each case is different as to the costs and fees involved.  Many forms of litigation are contingency based. In such cases I will not get paid unless you recover something.  However, not every case is contingency based.  You need an experienced and driven attorney to give you an honest accounting.  Contact me for a confidential initial consultation.

Q: Should I Sue?

The decision to bring a lawsuit is a serious one.  It entails a commitment of time and resources to a cause which you must be passionate about.  An experienced trial attorney and litigator will be able to explain the multitude of options available to you.  It is of extreme importance that you trust the attorney you chose to hire.  That trust allows the free flow of information which is crucial to the proper evaluation and maintenance of your potential case.

When asking yourself "should I sue?" also ask yourself "what do I want out of this?"  By starting the evaluation in this manner you can begin to answer the question of "should I sue."

As a former prosecutor, I fully understand the power law enforcement has. As a trial attorney, I know the law seems very scary.
