If you’ve been served with a civil summons to answer a lawsuit it is in your best interest to hire an attorney as soon as possible. The filing of a lawsuit sets various deadlines for the answering of legal pleadings and the assertion of rights, defenses, counterclaims, and so forth. My work on the Plaintiff’s side of many lawsuits gives me valuable insight into the most effective defense strategies.
In our first meeting, I will review the legal pleadings that have been filed against you, and give you an honest assessment as to the strength of the claims therein. We will discuss the best strategy moving forward, and will begin drafting responsive pleadings immediately.
