Generally, we try to settle a case without the necessity of having to go to trial. There are many instances, however, where a case must be tried, and there are many reasons for that. We will try to keep you advised on an ongoing basis of the status of your case, and we will also try to give you a good idea of the status of ongoing negotiations and preparedness for trial.
You may never have to go to court if your case can be resolved without litigation. You may still have to give a recorded statement, but this is an informal proceeding. If your case proceeds to litigation, then you may have to give a deposition, attend a mediation, and may have to attend court hearings or eventually testify at trial. We will discuss all possible options and help you determine the best course to pursue in your particular case.
It may be necessary for us to file a lawsuit in your case. Should your case go into litigation, we will be communicating with you, not only about that action but also about various steps that we take along the way throughout litigation. We ask that you cooperate with us fully throughout any litigation as it may well be necessary for you to answer written questions that are propounded to you by the other side and you may have your deposition taken during the case. There are many other steps that will involve you, and we will obviously keep you advised. We will be working with you with respect to all of these matters. Should the case go to trial, you will be advised fully about the kinds of things that are likely to occur in a trial.
