The attorneys at Granite Peak Law are ready to assess your case and give you quality feedback and advice to move forward deliberately. We listen carefully to your situation and seek to fully understand the legal aspects of your case before taking action. This process ensures that our cases are brought before the Court from a position of informed strength.
The first step to deciding whether we are the right attorneys for your case should be with a phone call or in person meeting. This will give us both a chance to ask questions, assess the risks, discuss the timeline of litigation, and dive into the facts of your case. If further investigation is warranted, we will discuss how to gather more evidence and the legal discovery process.
Should we decide to work together, we will propose a fee arrangement that suits your circumstances and needs. For many clients, this involves contingency fee arrangements where we work for a percentage of the recovery. However, for certain matters we require hourly fees to cover our overhead, the costs of suit, and other fees and expenses. We will work with you to determine what is fair and reasonable, tailored to your situation.
The Mechanics of Litigation
Civil litigation involves bringing state and federal claims in a court of appropriate jurisdiction within the applicable statute of limitations. Cases are managed pursuant to a Scheduling Order, where deadlines are set for the discovery process, the reporting by experts, the filing of motions, and other trial preparation matters.
Granite Peak Law seeks to bring your case to life so the judge or jury can understand what you are going through and how the law provides compensation for your damages.
Preparing your case well involves a lot of time and effort. It involves extensive legal research, writing, and advocacy in order to apply your facts to the law and make your voice heard. The opposing side often digs in their heals. It takes a proper airing of the facts, persistence and a strong understanding of the law to resolve your case. Granite Peak Law attorneys are ready to pursue your claims with determination.
We take our duties of prompt communication, transparency, honesty, and other legal ethics very seriously. Ultimately, following these ethical requirements holds us accountable to you and the legal profession. Woven through your case will be lawyers representing you with honesty and integrity.
