With the challenging economy we’re experiencing, people are constantly asking me how business is going. The assumption is that people and companies don’t have money for litigation, and so my business is probably suffering. Add to that the long-term shutdown of various courts, and you’d think that business would be slow.
But I’ve been doing well. Business was very strong last year, and is even stronger this year. Businesses and people might not have as much money for litigation, but they still have money and certain things still have to be litigated.
However, there is a legitimate concern about the legal fees and expert fees that are going to be incurred, and consumers are choosing wisely.
