WHAT HAPPENS NEXT:
STEP 1: CASE PLAN
Simple cases can be done in two months or less. More complicate cases can be six to eight months, with fiercely contested or complex cases taking a year or more.
Once you have paid your retainer and returned your signed retainer agreement, the firm is officially retained and we begin working on your case. The first few days involve data entry and clerical work including creating a physical file and a computer file. After this we begin generating a case plan. This case plan is created by the attorney and shared with the entire staff so everyone knows what direction we are going in your case and what your goals include.
