Filing a lawsuit is sometimes necessary to resolve an ongoing dispute. But before you jump right into filing a lawsuit, it’s important to know what you’re getting yourself into.

Filing a Lawsuit is a Big Step
Potential clients often ask Robinson & Henry litigation attorneys what they should consider before filing a lawsuit. There are plenty of things for you to think about for suing someone, but some of the most important ones concern time and money. Let’s take a look at three things to consider before filing a lawsuit.
ONE: The End Game
What kind of solution or outcome are you looking for with the lawsuit? Is your goal a monetary award or something else entirely?
TWO: Your Time
How much time are you willing to devote to a lawsuit? Lawsuits can take months or even years depending on how complicated it is. Is your problem such that a lawsuit is worth substantial disruption in your life?
THREE: The Cost
Finally, how much money are you willing to spend to achieve a solution presuming the court rules in your favor?
You need to consider how much you are willing to shell out for attorney fees, court costs, and other charges that accrue along the way. The expense of your lawsuit can add up over time.
What if You Lose?
There is always the possibility you could lose. You must prepare yourself for a significant investment of time and money and the chance that investment may not pay off in the end.
How to Save Time & Money
After consulting a Robinson & Henry litigation attorney you may discover that what you’re hoping to accomplish can be achieved before filing a lawsuit.
Demand Letter & Mediation
Sometimes a strongly worded letter from an attorney that hints at filing a lawsuit is all it takes to obtain the solution you want. Other times a few sessions with a mediator can do the trick. A demand letter and some mediation are two litigation alternatives that will certainly save you time and money.
