When we meet with clients, they often want to know how long it’s going to take. We typically tell them 9 to 14 months at a very minimum. Security cases, oftentimes, last longer, particularly if we get into litigation. Sometimes we don’t know who all the defendants are going to be until we get into the case. That produces delays that will improve the case but will add time to the case.Filing the lawsuit will add a year to that process. The court system in Northeast Florida has gotten clogged up again. It’s taken a long time to get to trial with cases. The idea is to establish the expectation in the clients’ minds that this is not going to be over in a couple of weeks, not four to six weeks. It’s going to be a long time. We tell people that , if you come to a lawyer with a legal problem, leave it here. You get back to living, get back on your feet as best you can. Do what your doctors tell you to do. Get your treatment, be compliant. Having set your expectation timelines will help a great deal.
