Getting Things Done

Topics: General

I previously had a post called "Is Your Lawyer To Busy?".   A client has recently switched from a previous firm and the previous firm provided their file.   I was surprised to see that the previous firm had done little to move the lawsuit forward in several years.   The lawsuit was not complicated and since the client was a Plaintiff, it is the Plaintiff's lawyer's job to move the Plaintiff's lawsuit ahead to trial.
