So I’m getting a lawyer because I have cancer and it’s the kind that’s cause from round up non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and when I got to talk to the lawyer I want to know what questions I should ask and if they don’t give me a timeline how will I know how long it will take and if they’ve already reviewed all the medical stuff then what’s the average time it takes after that has taken place but I was just kind of looking to see what would be some good questions for me to ask them when I talk to them so that I can know more about what’s going on

A: Law firms that are involved in these cases could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. I'm sorry for your diagnosis; good luck with your treatments. You could ask the law firms you approach if they handle other cases like yours, and about attorney fees. In terms of the timeline you ask about, law firms could only give you a ballpark estimate. With large multidistrict litigation in general, case dockets can change and cases can be re-assigned to different judges. It depends on the backlog and the system. Law firms that you approach will tell you what they need from you. They will have you complete paperwork to obtain your medical records, work history, and other information. Good luck
