Many clients have not been involved in a litigation case before and are unaware of the
number of phases that a litigation case goes through. Accordingly, we want to give you
an overview of the litigation process. Typically, the formal litigation process is a time involved and intensive one. However, every case is different and may not follow the phases as listed below.
PHASE 1: Information/Investigation
After you have retained our firm to represent you, we will begin gathering pertinent
information regarding the subject matter of your case (hereinafter referred to as
"Claims"). We may request documents, photographs, videos, or other information that
you have in your possession regarding your Claims. We may contact potential
witnesses, physicians, etc., regarding your Claims. We may request your medical
records, employment records, and income records, if necessary.
PHASE 2: Demand Letter and/or Pre-Suit Negotiations
