How to Prepare Your Case with Clear Goals in Mind!

Are you prepared to take your case to court?

Are you concerned about going in front of a judge?

Do you know the facts of your case? Can you communicate them clearly?

You need to make sure you set clear goals to ensure that your case has a successful outcome. Not sure what to do or how to get started? We can help you work toward a successful outcome!

Set Clear Goals for a Successful Case

The better you anticipate what the defendant will claim in court, the more powerfully you can build your case. Organization and preparation are everything! To give an organized presentation, make sure you:

  1. Bring your complete collection file to court. Your file should be organized in a logical way, whether in chronological order or by grouping similar documents together.
  2. Know your file. It’s not enough to have your file with you. You, or a witness who accompanies you, must be able to explain the meaning and significance of every document and note in the file.
  3. Tell your story in chronological order. In most case, you should go through the important facts from beginning to end. 
  4. Document the debtor’s intentions. Anticipate the defenses your defendant will raise and present evidence that refutes them.

Yes! Our staff is available for a free initial strategy meeting to build a relationship with you and figure out what you need.

3. “How much will my recovery be?”
Every case is different! As a result, it’s hard to predict what your recovery might be. If your debtor wants to settle out of court or insists on going to trial, your ultimate recovery could be larger or smaller.

4. How long will it take to reach a settlement?
Again, every case is different! The players change, but the game remains the same. Making a deal with your debtor is the fastest way to ensure a settlement. However, sometimes the parties can’t decide on a deal, so many cases end taking longer to resolve.
