Frequently Asked Questions: Litigation

How long does a lawsuit take?

From filing the complaint to the entry of judgment typically takes between one and three years (depending on which court it is filed in, how complex the issues are, whether the matter is bitterly contested, etc.).   In addition, there might be post judgment appeals and/or issues in collecting or enforcing the judgment, both of which can add a number of years to the process.
