When you contact a litigation attorney, it’s important that you know what to expect if a lawsuit is necessary.
Meaney & Meaney PC will be with you through the entire process.
1) If I hire a lawyer, does that mean I have to file a lawsuit?
Not necessarily. Your Huntington litigation lawyer will review your case and discuss your options. Before filing suit, your attorney will likely try to negotiate with the other party on your behalf. The
2) How does a lawsuit start?
If necessary to pursue your claim by way of a lawsuit, your lawyer will prepare the documentation necessary to start a lawsuit on your behalf. After the complaint is served, and the other side has answered, the discovery process will ensue.
3) What will my lawyer do after suit is filed?
4) Will I have to go to court?
If your case does not settle, you may eventually have a trial scheduled. This might not be for several months or more than a year after filing. Your lawyer will counsel you on what to expect.
5) Can I still settle after we file suit?
Settlement negotiations are usually ongoing even after a suit is filed. Once each party gets more familiar with the other side’s case, counter offers can be made. Your attorney will make recommendations regarding settlement, but the choice to settle and for how much is up to you.

We were first-time homebuyers without a clue of how the whole process worked. Meaney & Meaney PC took the time to explain everything to us in clear, understandable language, from the time we signed the contract to the day we finally closed. When a problem came up on the title report, James and Andrew went above and beyond to take care of it, and with their expertise, we were able to close on time. Thank you

My husband lost his job and were getting in over our heads with debt. After a few unfortunate failed attempts at directly asking out mortgage company for help , we found Meaney & Meaney PC. Not only did they get us into a mortgage payment that was affordable for our family, they were so understanding and compassionate. Andrew and James were reachable and honest through the process and truly cared about helping us. They never left us hanging and always followed through with their word. If it wasn’t for Meaney & Meaney PC, I’m not sure we would be in our home today. We are so grateful!!!

Meaney & Meaney PC handled the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current one. This involved multiple parties on a very tight schedule and could have been a very stressful experience but everything was concluded on time with a welcome lack of drama.
