Did You Get Served?

lawsuitWhat To Do If You Are Served

Have you ever been sued? If you’re like most people, the answer is no. Unfortunately, it seems like people are more frequently turning to litigation to settle disputes. This makes it more likely that you’ll have an opportunity to become familiar with the U.S. legal system. If you’ve been served with a lawsuit, then you need competent legal help. Contact the Potter Law Office to get the help you need.

It’s helpful to be aware of some key points when you are served with a lawsuit. The first of these is to remain calm. Panic will not improve the situation. Keep your wits about you and you’re much more likely to come up with a sensible plan. It’s also important not to ignore the lawsuit. More than one person has been tempted to do that. They figure that the lawsuit has no merit so it’s not worth paying attention to.

That is perhaps the worst possible response. Lawsuits have deadlines. If you miss the first one by which you are supposed to respond to the complaint, you’ve essentially admitted that the lawsuit has merit. Thus, the court can decide in the plaintiff’s favor. That can mean any number of undesirable outcomes that can include having your wages garnished.

Instead of ignoring that lawsuit, contact the Potter Law Office. They can help you respond to the complaint and protect your assets.
