Important Notice —There is no attorney client relationship between you and the law firm Douglas B Brown PA until there is a written agreement executed by the parties. Until a conflict search is completed, you should not disclose anything about the nature of the dispute.
Additionally, if you have been served with a complaint, you generally have no more than 20 days in state court and 21 days in Federal court to answer the complaint or file a motion to dismiss. It is critical you obtain an attorney well before the deadline and, if you do not have counsel, contact the opposing counsel and try to obtain an extension of time, or file a motion with the court seeking an extension of time. Failure to do so may lead to a default or a default judgment entered that may seriously affect your ability to defend yourself unless the court vacates the default.
Before I can obtain any confidential information from you, I need to do a basic conflict of interest review and obtain some understanding of your legal needs to see if I am in a position to represent you. If you have been sued— please email a copy of the complaint and attachments to dbrowncfcl@ gmail.com.
I will try to respond to all requests within 2 business days. You should be make every effort to retain and organize all potentially relevant documents - especially contracts and any written documents you relied upon.
I also suggest that you make a list of all persons with relevant knowledge, describing what they know and their contact information.
Lawyers sometimes focus almost exclusively on liability. It is just as important to make a realistic evaluation of any damage claim - whether you are a plaintiff or defendant. Any lawyer you talk to will need to get a some rough estimate of the damages at issue.
