The "Art" Of Litigation

"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win"

― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Planning is of paramount importance to be ready for what the opposition is bringing to the courtroom. Sean P. McAfee believes that every case is different and deserves to be strategically evaluated on its own merits. He does not take a cookie-cutter approach to complex legal matters, but rather focuses on a comprehensive overview of all angles with fresh eyes. That includes careful planning and then, when appropriate, assembling the best team to implement effective strategies.

Clients throughout New Mexico and the nation come to us with a variety of questions about civil litigation that include:

What Questions Should I Ask Before Pursuing A Lawsuit?

Is your claim valid and can it be resolved through litigation? Do you have standing to seek relief when you were impacted by an incident? Is your lawyer invested in fighting for you? There are many questions you can and should ask when contemplating hiring a lawyer to file a lawsuit.

How Long Is The Process?

From the initial investigation and filing to the final resolution, the length of time is based on the specifics of the conflict. What is certain is that handling a lawsuit properly is not a process that should be rushed. You want an attorney who works efficiently while attending to every detail, while keeping in mind that achieving resolution as soon as possible is in everyone's best interests.

Are There Time Limits?

The clock on the statute of limitations starts ticking from the moment you discover that you were injured or suffered harm. Certain factors can extend the time limit. It is important to note that federal, state and local governments have immunity to a variety of lawsuits. In legal matters where they are not immune, the statutes of limitations may be shorter than those for private businesses.

What Attributes Should My Civil Litigator Have?

While all attorneys will claim that they are the best, television commercials and billboards are not indicative of litigation skill. In addition to experience, education and training, you need to find an attorney who is right for you and your case. You need to be comfortable with your lawyer, and make sure he will spend the time and resources necessary to help you. Most importantly, your lawyer should tell you what you need to hear even if it's something that you don't want to hear.
