CINCINNATI LITIGATION: THE STEPS


A litigated case has several phases: research, entries, pleadings, discovery, pretrial, settlement or trial, and occasionally appeal. The heavy lifting your case work is often done outside of the courtroom. The discovery phase consumes a large portion of the timeline as findings are shared between parties, reviewed, and addressed before any thorough argument can be presented at trial. This often involves the client’s patience and participation as we gather relevant information, through depositions, interrogatories, and subpoenas. Scheduling conflicts, unreachable parties or witnesses, and sandbagging opposing counsel can all contribute to lengthening the process.


It is important to note that no two cases are identical and each suit may follow a different path. The willingness of each party to cooperate and the subject matter of your case greatly influence how quickly sides either come to a settlement; some lawsuits are resolved just shortly after the discovery phase. A best case scenario that Susan Zeller Dunn will always pursue as your Cincinnati litigation lawyer.   Call today to learn more:  513-512-4324.


TO TRIAL OR NOT TO TRIAL


When the process follows a more complicated path, parties often find themselves going to trial. This is the alternate timeline where a lawsuit may take months or even several years before a resolution. At your initial consult, Attorney Susan Zeller Dunn will review your case and give you a realistic idea of what to expect.   Call today to learn more:  513-512-4324.
