A: You should stop everything you are doing and consult with an attorney immediately. Do not contact the relevant parties or make any statements about the matter until you are represented. Also, I recommend acting quickly, as you have a limited amount of time to respond to a summons.

Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to organize the complaint and other relevant documentation, and consult with an experienced attorney. After a review of the details, we can advise as to the best course of action moving forward.

A: If the matter involves a loss for which you carry insurance, contact your insurance carrier so that a defense could be arranged.
