Litigation Is Not The Only Solution

When a legal dispute arises, you have a couple of options: work toward a settlement outside of court or litigate the issue.

While both choices can lead to positive outcomes, our team at The Law Office of Timothy H. Nichols, PLLC, typically recommends an attempt at settlement first. Every case will be different and we can recommend a course of action specific to your situation, but litigation is often the last resort.

So, when is it the better option?

When Should You Choose Litigation?

In order to engage in negotiation, both sides must agree to this method of resolution. If one party refuses, litigation is the only option.

Settlements can have significant advantages such as lower costs and a shorter process, but litigation also has benefits. The other party may feel they can better protect their rights through litigation, for example.

If both parties have agreed to pursue a settlement but no progress is being made, litigation may be the only way to proceed. Perhaps the other party refuses to compromise or offer reasonable solutions.

Rather than delaying the process and spending more time and energy trying to persuade them, litigation can ensure that you start moving toward a solution again.
