Once the lawyer’s recommendation to file suit has been agreed upon by the client, what happens next? Typically it takes a few weeks for the defendant (employer) to be served with the lawsuit papers. They have thirty days to answer the lawsuit. Then discovery begins. While we are always working toward trial, settlement talks or mediation can take place at any time the parties agree. Each case is different. When you have questions about your lawsuit, please do not hesitate contact your lawyer!
If you have any questions or concerns about this issue or other issues on the law, please call the Nomberg Law Firm at 205-930-6900.
