The process of filing a lawsuit begins when you provide your attorney with a complete account of the subject of your suit, with all the details you can recall. After that, you and your legal representative work together to collect evidence and relevant information. When your attorney has their arguments ready, they can then file a complaint – a document telling the court about the issue. The court then asks the soon-to-be defendant to respond.
Settlement can be an attractive option for concluding a lawsuit, but you need to consider if it is truly the best choice for your situation. Your attorney will seek to find the options they think will benefit you most and discuss them with you. They will also want to discuss relevant factors, like your current assets and whether or not you are even comfortable with the terms for the settlement. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide if you accept the settlement or push for something else.
Attorney on Retainer
While it is not necessary for a company to do so, hiring an attorney on retainer comes with one great benefit. Attorneys on retainer receive the chance to learn and understand your company: who works there, what your goals are, and how every aspect of the business is done. You would have to explain all this to other lawyers each time you hire them, but when you have one in-house, you will only need to explain once. They will then be able to provide better consultation any time you have a legal question.
The Attorneys at Shapiro Law Group, PC have extensive experience in working together with both Plaintiffs and Defendants in formulating a cogent and aggressive strategy, and have a proven record at obtaining successful results for their clients at Court Appearances and other confrontational contexts. Often, litigants witness their cases advance to Discovery, or the mechanism by which information is formally exchanged prior to Trial. This is a critical stage in any Lawsuit, as it often provides valuable insight and evidence which can lead to a favorable judgment. Our Attorneys are well versed in the various methods of Discovery, including, but not limited to audio visual depositions, interrogatories, the use of discovery masters, and other hallmarks of the Discovery process. Often, the materials gleaned from Discovery can extinguish an Opponent’s vexatious attempts at either hiding information from a Plaintiff or harassing and intimidating a Defendant.
Types of Motions
An alternative to Trial is Motion practice. Certain Motions, such as a Motion for Summary Judgment, allow the parties to make their arguments to the Court, in hopes of seeking judgment without the need for a costly and often month-long Trial. These dispositive Motions are frequently used by both Plaintiffs and Defendants to dissolve any remaining issues, and, if successful, prevail without the need for a Trial. Our Attorneys have strong records in dispositive Motions, often being able to remove several remaining issues, or even removing parties, from a distracting Lawsuit. When a matter cannot be resolved through Mediation, dispositive Motion practice, or other means, the last resort is Trial. Trial involves the use of witnesses, exhibits, and other materials to prepare the best case possible. Often, parties can reach an amicable resolution in the midst of a lengthy Trial, and save both parties costs and time. However, sometimes a trial on the merits must be conducted, to fully put to rest the issues at bar
