When you need a skilled trial lawyer for your civil case, Michelle M. Truesdale fights for you.
Michelle is experienced in many areas of civil litigation, including personal injury, wrongful death, automobile accidents, breach of contract, employment and business law. Michelle provides a free consultation to evaluate the individual circumstances of your case and determine how to best serve your legal needs.
You should be prepared to bring any paperwork or documentation that relates to your claim, such as records of injury, damages, reports from investigators/law enforcement, employment or business records, and your contract, if applicable. But don’t worry if you can’t locate or don’t have any documents to accompany you at your consultation. Michelle will gather as much information from you as possible that relates to your claim. She will assess your claim with the information she has and honestly tell you the likely outcome and likelihood of success. Michelle will walk you through the litigation process step by step and keep you informed and aware as your litigation progresses.
Not all claims necessarily end up in Court. Some can and may be resolved through other legal tactics and strategies that could result in just as favorable an outcome as it would with litigation. However, Michelle has extensive litigation experience and knows when a claim should be filed in Court, even if other tactics are implemented before filing. Michelle will fight for you and your claim to the fullest extent of the law.
All civil claims are different and have different time lines in which they progress due to the nature and complexity of the case. However, because most civil claims need to be filed within a statute of limitations, you should not delay in seeking out qualified legal counsel once your injury or damage(s) have occurred. Once a case is filed, the time line it takes to get to trial, if it does not settle, depends on the complexity of the issues. The process of a civil claim begins with filing the complaint, the other party then files his/her appearance and answers the claim, the discovery process begins and possible pre-trial motions are litigated. All of these procedures can occur before your case gets to trial. The litigation process should not be intimidating or confusing for you, which is why Michelle keeps you involved and advised throughout the duration of your case. She ensures there is more than ample communication with clients because staying informed means feeling secure in your representation. Contact Michelle today to discuss your claim.
