Top Ten Things You Should Know About Your Lawsuit

  • It will take forever. It will change every time something happens.
  • You could lose - the chances of winning are never more than 50-50.
  • People you thought were your friends might not be.
  • Everything you say can be used against you - so don't talk about the case to anyone.
  • Everything you thought was a secret might not be - particularly if you don't tell me about it.
  • Your case is different from every other case.
  • I don't KNOW how much you will get and I won't until the jury returns.
  • Sometimes when it seems like nothing is happening - that's true. Other times, it is not.
  • Don't call me. Write me, fax me, or send a carrier pigeon - it will save you a lot of frustration.
