Have You Been Served With a Lawsuit?
Being served with a citation and lawsuit can be confusing, upsetting, and even frightening. It may seem like your livelihood is at stake when you or your business is sued. At Bailey & Galyen, we understand that being a defendant in a lawsuit can have serious implications for you or for your company. We work with individuals, business owners, directors and corporate officers to assist with resolving lawsuits in the most timely, effective, and cost-efficient manner possible. Our goal is to get the best possible result with the least overall expense to you.
One of the earliest decisions you must make when your company is sued, is WHO you will trust to defend you in the lawsuit. The business and corporate attorneys at Bailey & Galyen have the experience, expertise and business know-how to successfully navigate the often complex nature of litigation. We will go above and beyond to aggressively represent your legal interests.
When you or your company has been sued, it is imperative that you act quickly. If you don’t respond to the lawsuit within the necessary time period, you risk having a default judgment entered against you, which means that the opposing party will get everything they have asked for and you have no input regarding any issue of liability, prejudgment interest or the payment of their attorney’s fees! In Texas, the deadline for responding to a lawsuit is typically 20 days, plus the following Monday after the date that you served. There are many exceptions to that general rule, so please do not wait to seek legal advice. Call Bailey & Galyen TODAY.
The decisions you make in the first few days after being served can have serious and long-lasting impacts on the time and resources you or your company may have to spend. The attorneys at Bailey & Galyen can guide you through these critical decisions, and will do everything they can to minimize the strain that a lawsuit can place on your life or your business.
