When you get to the point you need to sue a company, you better have a great lawyer on your side. You know the company you are going up against has a whole team of them on their side. It is important when things come down to having to file suit for a product problem or anything involving a big corporation that you get a powerful attorney. We are in California and hired a Los Angeles litigation lawyer to take our side of a case. Some of the biggest and most powerful firms are already working for the big corporations. You might be surprised to call a place and find out they cannot help you because their firm represents the company or one of its subsidiaries, suppliers or other companies.
Think about the biggest company you know. Imagine how many other companies are involved in providing them raw materials, machinery, supplies or anything they need to run their business. The big lawyer firms may have to not take your case because they already represent someone associated with the corporation. You can’t have that conflict of interest. Right? Well, that is why we picked a Los Angeles litigation lawyer who had experience in representing people like us. We wanted someone that was not only not afraid to come up against the big guns, but someone who had a lot of experience doing it.
Law is not like you see on TV. There is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. Every piece of paperwork has to be filed correctly and on time for any claim to even move forward. When we went to court we were successful. We did not get our case smashed because the other team had more power or abilities. I do, however, wonder what would have happened if we would have chosen a less experienced law firm for our lawsuit.
