I've been at this for 3 years and finally going to trial in May. Then it will be done, done, done!
I am happy to give specific advice/lessons learned to some of you who are new to this whole thing.
My tips for the week:
1.Get the absolute best attorney you can. Ask everyone for referrals. Put the retainer on a credit card or borrow it from parents. I tend to like larger firms better than a solo operation because of one reason - they don't "need" to drag out your case in order to pay the bills.
2. The quicker you can get it done - the better.
It's too bad that all the people who are smart enough to run the country are busy teaching school.
