My law partner is fond of saying that “A lawsuit is a marathon not a sprint.” I like his quote because it sets the expections of what a client can expect to incur during the course of a lawsuit. It does not matter what type of suit it is, be it Trust, Will, Estate, Probate or Civil litigation, the general overview of what to expect is the same.
To give our clients a snapshot of the litigation process, we have prepared a memorandum of what clients can expect during the course of their lawsuit (What to Expect In Your Lawsuit.pdf). It does not answer every litigation question, but it provides a basic primer on the litigation process. We’ve decided to share that same memorandum here on our blog so everyone can see our basic primer on what to expect in your lawsuit.
