YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF:
"Do I have a claim?"
"Can I file a lawsuit?"
Anyone can make a claim or file a lawsuit about anything. The real question is should you?
Filing a lawsuit or making a claim does not mean you will get money or “win.” The court will let anyone pay a filing fee and file a lawsuit.
Is a lawsuit worth filing, or is a claim is worth making it? That is what you should really be asking.
If you are fighting over $1,000, should you spend $15,000 on a lawsuit? If your claim is about $1,500 in losses, can you justify spending $5,000 on a lawyer?
It’s about standing your ground for sure. But, it also has to make financial sense.
let's do the math
Let’s say you decide to hire a lawyer. And, let’s say the retainer is $1,500.
Guess what the other folks involved in your problem will do? They will hire a lawyer and pay $1,500 for a retainer.
You are now both invested in the dispute a total of $3,000. After the lawyers spend your $1,500, they will ask for another $1,500 and suggest you go to traditional mediation.
You are both now invested in the dispute a total of $6,000. You are now headed to traditional mediation where you will pay lawyers and a mediator.
How’s your math? Is this penciling out? Nope.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of using money to pay lawyers you could use money to work toward a resolution? Yep.
You can. With NLA, you do not need lawyers and courts to resolve problems.
Now, on the other hand, if you have a dispute that involves a very large amount at issue, and it is very complicated, and you can justify paying lawyers, then you should find yourself a good lawyer. Otherwise, go NLA today. Do not delay. All claims and lawsuit have deadlines. If the deadline passes, so does your claim and any hoping of compensation.
