Understand how long the process might take

  • The time required of you throughout the litigation process will vary. Your participation will be incredibly helpful as you collaborate with your defense team to review case details, respond to interrogatories, prepare for deposition and assess the depositions of others.
  • You may be called away from your practice due to case preparation or to attend deposition or trial. Your defense team will work with you to minimize interruptions in your practice and accommodate your scheduling needs.
  • On the other hand, parts of the process are primarily procedural and will require very little of your involvement or time.
  • For matters that move to trial, the amount of time devoted to the litigation increases significantly, and you will be expected to attend each day of trial and to make yourself available for pre-trial preparation, which may include planning, strategy or practice.
