What to Expect
1. Initial consultation: determine relevance and analyze information of case. 2. Filing a response: If a lawsuit (called a complaint) is filed, Attorney Della Fera will file a response to the complaint. 3. Discovery: After formal papers have been filed, the discovery process begins. During discovery, each party learns what the other party knows about the case by requesting specific documents, answers to written questions, and answers under oath in depositions. Discovery can continue for a period of weeks, months, or (in extremely complex cases) a year or more. 4. Settlement negotiations: As discovery proceeds, so do discussions regarding a settlement. Settlement is often a good option to end cases with an acceptable resolution to the matter. 5. Summary judgment: In some cases, it may be appropriate to file a summary judgment motion asking the judge to dismiss the case or make a final ruling without a complete trial. 6. Trial: In the event settlement negotiations fail, Defense Attorney Della Fera is an expert trial attorney who will take your case to court for resolution.
