Lawsuits can be frightening. What do you do next? Who do you talk to, and what do you say?
So if you are ever sued, here's what you should remember.
Don't panic. Lawsuits are slow. If you've just been served papers, you have time to consider a course of action and respond prior to the deadline. And just because you have been sued does not mean that you will lose. But don't ignore the summons.
Hire a lawyer. Make some phone calls. Make sure you talk to the lawyer, not the lawyer's assistant. Describe the case. Assess the lawyer's competence. Be way of guarantees or promises -- there are few sure things in the law. In many cases, your decision to hire a lawyer, and who you hire, are the most important decisions you will make.
