A Basic Walk-Through
of the Litigation Process

Anything at all, including the unimaginable, can happen in litigation. With this key idea in mind, the following advice is rendered:

Confirm all appointments not only a few days before, but also the day before an event with our attorney.

Candidly discuss all matters with our attorney, especially matters that are not favorable to us.

As soon as you are aware of a litigation event, begin to prepare:

Assemble all original documents even remotely associated with the litigation and make a set of copies. Bring all to the litigation event. Review those documents before the litigation event.

Ask questions of key client personnel or our attorney when something does not make sense. This may include, but not be limited to, strange invoicing, lack of documentation, or unsigned contracts. The adversary will ask those questions if their attorney is worth anything. If you are confused, chances are everyone will be confused.

Feel free to call me at TFC for any reason with any questions. This is especially true if you are not comfortable with our attorney. We will take whatever action is necessary, including obtaining new counsel. We are here as your resource.
