How to Defend a Lawsuit

Lawsuit Terminology

If you have a business and recently received a lawsuit, you may have a sinking feeling in your stomach…wonder what all the legal stuff on it means…and be quite scared, even if you don’t agree with it. We can’t help with any of that, but hopefully if you’ll take the next hour and read through all these pages, you’ll at least be able to talk to your attorney with more confidence, and understand the process a little better. If you’re tired of getting embarrassed at your workplace with process servers, law officers, certified mail—or worse yet, at your house, if you happened to list yourself as your registered agent—we can help. You can sign up for registered agent service and switch the agent to us. We electronically store all your lawsuits, service of process, and any state documents we receive on your behalf in your online account. We have real physical offices in every state to accept lawsuits on behalf of our clients, and help keep your matters more private. We upload all documents into your online account immediately upon receipt.

We can email up to 5 email addresses and your attorney upon receipt. Then, if you don’t log in and look at the document, we send you a regular letter in 3 days, asking you to log in.

No more embarrassing house or work calls.
