Will Filing A Lawsuit Resolve My Situation?
Generally, by the time the two parties to a dispute get to the point of hiring lawyers, they have tried almost everything else to solve their issue — or, at least one of them has. Knowing the time and expense involved with litigating a case and going to trial, it is usually the last-resort method of solving problems.
Depending upon the kind of case you have and which court you will file in, the cost and length of time to resolve it will vary. A case in federal court will usually be much more expensive and take longer than a case filed in state court. For these reasons, we prefer to file in state court whenever possible.
In order to commence a lawsuit, the plaintiff hires a lawyer to draft a "complaint." In simplified terms, the complaint is the document that lists the issues that are not resolved and the legal basis for asking the court to resolve them. It also states what the plaintiff would like the judge to award him or her after hearing all of the evidence presented at trial.
There are many steps that happen in between starting a lawsuit by filing the complaint, and the verdict at the end of the trial. The possibility of negotiating a settlement at any time during the litigation process usually increases as each party discovers how bad or good his or her case really is and whether he or she can prove or disprove what the other is saying or doing.
