If you are seeking to recovery monetary damages from someone, or being sued for a certain amount, then you need to contact a civil litigation attorney. At Fox & Moghul, our firm handles a variety of civil disputes, including but not limited to, lawsuits related to real estate, landlord tenant, business partnership disputes and fraud, among other types of cases. Once you are served with process (complaint and summons), you have 21 days to respond to the complaint, or else you risk default.
Here is what you need to do immediately after being served:
If you have been sued in general district court, then the claimant cannot recover more than $25,000, exclusive of attorneys fees and costs. However, this limit does not apply to Circuit Courts, which is where a claimant would sue if the damages sought are higher than $25,000.
Our attorneys appear regularly in Loudoun County courts, and can guide you accordingly. Please feel free to visit our Case Results section to review our firm’s prior track record in civil litigation, and the favorable results obtained for clients.
