Our litigation attorneys will conduct an initial case investigation to determine if enough evidence exists to file a lawsuit. The investigation process may include locating witnesses, taking witness statements, gathering documents, interviewing the client and investigating the facts leading to the dispute. Our attorneys consult with and advise clients and conduct pre-trial conferences to develop a trial strategy based on the facts and evidence. Based on what is gathered, we will often engage in pre-litigation settlement discussions to try to resolve the matter before a lawsuit is filed.
In the event one must be filed, will draft a summons and complaint to commence the lawsuit. We will also draft a variety of motions including motions to strike, dismiss, amend or change venue and motions for judgment on the pleadings.
If by chance, the outcome of the trial is not in your favor, at your request, we will make arrangements to appeal the case. Our litigation attorneys draft post-trial motions; identify and preserve issues for appeal; and research and gather evidence to develop appellate strategies.
