Go on the web and find out how to file a civil suit. Explain how the defendant is notified and what action is required by the defendant. Before filing a claim, you must offer the person you are suing the opportunity to settle the debt. You can do this verbally or in writing. If the person you are suing does not want to settle the debt, then you may proceed with filing a claim. After finding the proper court to file your civil suit, you go to the clerk and notify him/her that you want to file a complaint against someone. You then must ill out the appropriate paperwork and pay all fees necessary to file your claim. You will need to know the correct and complete name of the party you are suing. When your petition has been completed, the sheriff’s office or a process server, notifying him/her that a suit has been filed against him/her, will serve a citation along with your petition. The citation will order the defendant to appear in court to answer the suit on or before the Monday following the expiration of ten (10) days from the receipt of the citation. After receiving the summons and complaint, the defendant has a certain amount of days to respond to the complaint. He/she must do so by filing an answer with the court clerk. In the answer, the defendant admits or denies the plaintiff’s allegations and gives any defenses that he or she has to the lawsuit. If the defendant answers the suit and enters a not guilty plea, then the case will be set for trial. The plaintiff will then be notified by mail of the court date. If the defendant chooses to ignore the citation and not to appear in court, then the plaintiff may appear before the court and ask for a default judgment.

Find out and write about when an attorney will represent a client on a contingency basis when filing a suit or tort. Explain why a client would always want the lawyer’s fee to be on a contingency basis. An attorney will likely represent a client on a contingency basis, when it is most likely for the client to win his/her case. This reasoning is because if the client does not win in court, the lawyer does not earn a fee. In many situations, the client may not have the money to hire an attorney on their own, but would be willing to pay the attorney out of a future award or settlement. Using a contingency basis for payment, a client can still be represented by an attorney in his/her case. BUS 121 RESEARCH WORK #3 MISTY NEAL 7/20/10 PAGE #3
