I received paperwork from a process server what should I do?

Being summoned to court for any reason can be a stressful experience. It is important that you seek legal counsel early to address the case from the outset. Be sure to write the date and time of your service in your notes and have that information along with a copy of the documents you received when you make your initial call. An initial pleading may include motions seeking immediate relief and so time is of the essence. The experienced team at Kreis Enderle will help you find the right person to address your issues and do our best to assist you with timely and helpful advice.

Can’t I just work things out with the opposing party?

Good attorneys will assist their clients in avoiding court by providing meaningful options for early resolution. Notwithstanding this, it is important that you seek legal advice to determine if waiting presents a risk or if a hand shake agreement will be enforceable later.  It is always best to set up a consultation to determine your rights before negotiating from a position where you do not have complete information.

How much will it cost?

While Kreis Enderle strives to provide cost effective solutions for its clients, it is impossible to anticipate or estimate the costs of litigating a particular matter. This is because, unlike drafting an estate plan or other personal transaction, there is another party on the other side and their actions and attitude towards resolution will be a major factor in determining the costs of your case.

Are there options besides going to court?

Yes, Kreis Enderle has several litigators who are also trained mediators. We have reached successful resolutions using arbitration facilitative mediation and other settlement avenues which can help our clients avoid costly trial expenses. Each litigation approach is tailored to the needs of our particular clients with the goal of reaching the right resolution without unnecessary expense or time.

Will I get an attorney that specializes in cases like my own?

While our trial attorneys regularly litigate in specific areas of the law, our litigation section’s focus is on developing skills which translate into the courtroom for any situation. We will match you with the attorney that best meets your litigation needs and that person may draw on the experience of our other attorneys, when necessary.
