Cost of Litigation

by | Dec 31, 2020 | Civil Litigation |

Throughout a litigation it is very easy for a litigant to add up the dollars and cents of what their lawsuit is costing them. While a number can be calculated to tell  you what a litigation has cost you financially, or what the litigation may be costing  your opponent, what is not often considered is what the ligation costs someone mentally, physically and emotionally. It is a rare instance that a litigant is so removed from the litigation that they do not become emotionally invested. When hiring an attorney, most people only consider how much the retainer fee is, or what the attorney’s hourly rate is. They do not judge whether that person is best suited to navigate them through, what is about to be, one of the most trying times of their lives.

In these cases, the best attorney to have, is one that understands how to mitigate your costs, both financially and emotionally. It is important for an attorney to understand not just how many dollar and cents its going to take you to get to your goal, but also how long it will take them and what that means for your mental health. When you seek to employ an efficient, productive, and thoughtful litigation attorney, you are maximizing your chances of successful resolution to your dispute and minimizing the hidden emotional cost that you will have to pay.
