Civil Litigation has a poor reputation nationwide and is frequently fought in state legislatures via “tort reform.” At McMullen Law Office, LLC, we will attempt to resolve your case without going to court. But, civil cases must be filed by a certain date. We will work with you to identify that date and map a course of action with you to resolve your legal issues.
It is important to discuss your case with an attorney as soon as you believe that you have a case for several reasons. First, cases must be filed by the statute of limitations date. For some cases, this can be as short as one year. The time may have started to run before you were even aware that you had a potential case. So, you should speak to an attorney immediately upon realizing you have an issue. Second, sometimes you may not be in possession of all of the information that you and your attorney will need to prove your case. By involving an attorney early, an attorney can send a “preservation letter” to all parties involved in your case requiring them to preserve all information that could be useful in your case. Third, having an attorney involved early can help you reach a resolution without filing a lawsuit. Many parties want to resolve their cases without having the expense of hiring an attorney and going to trial.
At McMullen Law Office, LLC, we believe that the first step should be resolution without involving the courts. If we cannot resolve your case without help from the courts, we are prepared to immediately file your case or to defend you if you are already being sued.
