We Help You Every Step of the Way if You’re Filing a Lawsuit
A lawyer from our law firm will begin the process of initiating a civil lawsuit by filing a complaint, which clearly identifies the defendants in the case. The plaintiff, or the person who files the lawsuit, must serve the defendant with a copy of the lawsuit. The defendant is given time to file an appropriate response to the complaint. Once the defendant files the response, the plaintiff and defendant move on to the next stage, which is the discovery phase. In this phase, each side is given a chance to find evidence and facts of the legal issues at the center of the lawsuit. This phase includes a number of processes like depositions, interrogatories, and more. The conclusion of discovery will lead to a pre-trial conference in which the judge and lawyers can hash out any more issues regarding inadmissibility of evidence, witness testimony complications, and other matters. Depending on the jurisdiction, if a trial date has not already been assigned upon filing of the complaint, the court will then set the date for the trial. This process can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially for laypeople without proper legal training. With law offices on Mercer Island and in Vancouver, Our experienced general litigation lawyers handle all of these steps:
- filing complaints;
- filing answers;
- working through the discovery phase;
- continuing negotiations;
- and, litigating in a court room if necessary.
