Initiating Class-Action Lawsuits and Representing Victims in South Florida
Class-action lawsuits go through several steps before plaintiffs may even be made aware of their inclusion. Typically, a class-action lawyer will initiate proceedings by drafting the complaint and filing it against the defendant. This obligates the defendant to respond, and if the suit proceeds, a period of discovery allows both sides to gather documents, make formal inquiries and take depositions. Only after these steps are completed can the plaintiff petition to certify the suit as class action. If you need a class-action lawsuit attorney in South Florida, the Law Office of Scott M.
