Every effort is made to settle a claim without the need for litigation, which is usually very traumatic, costly and time consuming. Nevertheless, it may become necessary to file a lawsuit in court and proceed through the process that could lead to a trial.

You should be aware of the fact that every lawsuit that is filed in court does not automatically go to trial. There are a number of opportunities and options that are available after the lawsuit is filed and prior to trial that can be utilized to resolve a dispute. These options include but are not limited to Mediation and Arbitration.
