Maybe you are upset at your neighbor, maybe you were involved in an accident, or maybe you are facing a business or other personal dispute with someone. You might be angry. You might be upset. You might be injured or wronged. Now what? Perhaps litigation is a viable option for you.
Like many people, you may want to just: “Sue ‘Um!” That’s a natural reaction and possibly a healthy decision depending on your circumstances. However, before taking this serious and important step, you should strongly consider talking to an experienced attorney to evaluate your situation beforehand so you can make a rational, calm, informed, and good decision for you before things escalate.
There are many risks associated with litigation, which can include significant cost, expense, time, frustration, and stress. However, some matters simply need a Court’s involvement to obtain justice or to reach a final and fair resolution to your legal problems and disputes.
There can also be many benefits to litigation. The decision of a neutral judge or arbitrator can sometimes provide a better recovery for you in lieu of a negotiated settlement depending on your situation. Also, litigation can bring finality to disputes that are otherwise difficult to resolve.
If you are considering these types of issues, please take the time now to contact competent legal counsel to evaluate your personal situation and assess your legal risks and the benefits of litigation.
