Legal FAQs

Many clients have the same concerns regarding their legal matter - how does the legal process work? As a lawyer and mediator with over 20 years of experience, J. Michelle Farrell understands how complexity of the legal system can create frustration, and even barriers, when pursuing your goals.

To alleviate this stress, here are some general guidelines regarding legal procedure.

How Do I Know If I Need A Lawyer?

To accurately answer this question, we encourage you to arrange a free, 30-minute consultation by phone to discuss your concerns. It's possible you may not need a lawyer for your issue.

Your situation may not be at the right stage for litigation yet, and I will tell you that. Maybe you need just need a conflict coach, or someone to say, "why don't you go back and try this?". The most important thing is to speak with a lawyer first, and find out.

How Long Does A Matter Take To Resolve?

The most accurate answer is, it depends. The length can vary based on:

  • The complexity of the case
  • Coordinating the schedules of the lawyers and the courts
  • The mediation process
  • Time needed to gather all the necessary facts

Each case is different, so it depends on your specific matter.

Why Are There Long Delays During The Life Of A Case?

Delays can happen for many reasons. Clients may expect that action is going to happen a lot sooner than it does. The reality is, matters may have periods of no action between procedures.

At Farrell Law & Mediation, we will can provide you with a general timeline for legal procedure, and update you as your case moves forward. If you have any questions or want an update on your case, we are always available to answer your call.
