Civil litigation can be stressful, time consuming and costly
That is why at Bashian & Papantoniou we take great pride to ensure that we properly guide our clients through this entire process.
From the commencement of a lawsuit through settlement or even trial – our team of New York trial attorneys are available around the clock to answer any question that you may have and to provide strategies on how you can be successful in your litigation.
The first thing we do at our initial meeting with a new client is to discuss the claims and damages at issue and statutory deadlines that you may be facing. The challenges for a plaintiff may include a statute of limitations deadline or for a defendant a potential default for failure to answer a pleading or motion. The next step will be a discussion about whether your dispute is something that can be resolved without the need to engage in a long and costly litigation. We will discuss with you the anticipated costs of litigating the claims and conduct a cost effective analysis to determine whether it would be more beneficial to actively settle.
If settlement is your choice, we will reach out to our adversaries and attempt to negotiate a settlement that best meets your standards and goals. If not, we will immediately develop a strategy and plan for taking advantage of all legal remedies available.
Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant engaged in litigation it is important that you have the proper guidance to ensure that deadlines are not missed and that the appropriate course of action is taken. Through our years of litigation and trial experience, the New York trial lawyers of Bashian & Papantoniou will assist you in each and every step of the litigation process so that you know what is expected and there are no surprises.
If you have any questions concerning a lawsuit and are not yet represented by legal counsel please feel free to contact the attorneys of Bashian & Papantoniou.
