Questions All Clients Should Ask


Lawsuits can be intimidating. This is true regardless of whether you are the plaintiff (the party suing) or the defendant (the party being sued). Most people can go through their entire lives without ever needing to avail themselves of the court system. So when you do get sued or need to sue someone else, for whatever reason, it is helpful to have an attorney who understands that not everyone speaks "legalese." Such an attorney should be able to sit down with the prospective client and help them make an intelligent and informed decision about his or her options.

Do you think you need to sue someone? Many prospective clients are exceedingly reluctant and almost apologetic about the thought. Lawsuits are something that other people do--like the woman who got burned by McDonald's coffee. But the reality is that sometimes a person has no other choice, and sometimes a lawsuit is the only way to correct a wrong or achieve justice. That is why the court system exists, so there is no reason to be sorry about it.

Once you decide that suing someone is the right course of action, there are many choices to make. What claims do I make? Where do I sue them? Do I want a jury trial or arbitration? How long will this take? How much will it cost? These are all questions that prospective clients typically have, and you shouldn't be afraid to ask.

On the flip side, have you been sued by someone? That can be an even more difficult situation. In this case, you have no choice but to hire a lawyer and get involved with the legal system. What is going to happen? How much will it cost? What do I do? How can I make it simply go away?

Whether you want to sue or you just got sued, the attorneys at Slinde Nelson can help.
