Let’s Talk Lawsuits!

What is Litigation?

“Litigation” is a word we hear thrown around court drama and reality show programs, but what does it actually mean?

And why is it sometimes wise to avoid litigation?

Are there ways to avoid it?

Every situation is unique, but typically litigation can become costly very quickly and the decision to litigate should not be taken lightly.

Check out this short video where I discuss litigation with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators.

How is Litigation like War?

If all other methods of resolution have been exhausted and a matter moves into litigation, the stakes and expenses begin to matter more than ever.

Just like war, each side begins to plan their strategies and dig themselves into their positions.

Human nature also begins to kick in, as the competitive instinct takes over with neither side wanting to lose.

Check out this short video where I discuss the war-like qualities and risks of litigation with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators.

Do all Disputes end up in Litigation?

Is there an alternative to litigation?

Does every case end up in a knock-down, drag out war?

The answer is no! There is an alternative called “mediation.”

Check out this short video where I discuss the mediation option with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators. 

Does the Winner always receive Attorney’s Fees in a Lawsuit?

Many people assume that if you win a case, you’re entitled to having your attorney’s fees covered.

While this can and does happen, it’s not automatic.

Take a look at this short video where I discuss attorney’s fees with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators. 

If you file a Lawsuit are you going to Trial?

People often picture every legal matter being resolved in a courtroom.

While this does happen, it’s actually the exception, not the rule.

Take a look at this short video where I discuss the probability of going to trial with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators.

Is a Handshake Deal a Deal?

For many people, shaking hands is the quickest, simplest way to “make a deal.”

There’s even a phrase for it, “shake on it.”

But are such deals valid and would they stand up in court?

Take a look at this short video where I discuss handshake deals and the importance of contracts with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators.

Is it OK to keep only Digital Agreements vs. the Paper Versions?

Prior to the digital age, paper was everything.

Today we have dual options and with every year that goes by, digital versions of everything have become more prominent.

Is the same true in the legal industry?

Check out this short video where I discuss digital/scanned agreements versus the paper versions with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators. 

What’s the Difference between Hourly and Contingency in Litigation?

Attorneys can be paid in different ways depending on the nature of the case and the arrangement.

So, in a litigation case, how are attorneys typically paid and what is the difference between an attorney being paid on an hourly basis versus being paid via contingency?

Why might an attorney and client agree to a contingency arrangement?

Take a look at this short video where I discuss hourly versus contingency with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators. 

Why is the Discovery Process so Important?

We’ve seen countless movies where cases are won in the courtroom, but why is it so rare that we hear about cases actually being won or lost in discovery?

Just like most boxers or MMA fighters will tell you, they didn’t suddenly just pull off a magical win in the ring or Octagon, they spent countless hours training at the gym and studying footage of their opponents.

It’s the same thing in the legal world. To consistently win in the courtroom you must put in the work during discovery.

Take a look at this short video where I discuss why I believe the discovery process is so overlooked, yet incredibly vital to victory with my friends and legal colleagues, Jon Tobin & Chuong Bui, from Counsel for Creators.
