threat of a lawsuit often fails to deter illegal behavior, although we typically send a “cease and desist” letter before litigation, to show that we were trying to work it out without going to court. Also, you should consider that lawsuits take a long time and preparation for a lawsuit takes time. The sooner you start, the sooner you will reach the end. One of the biggest problems I face is clients who waited too long to consult me. We don’t have to file the lawsuit right away. But we do have to start preparing for one right away— and the preparation part is usually not that expensive. There is no reason to neglect immediately consulting with an attorney. Competition in the recovery and towing business is fierce. Keep track of what your competitors are saying about you. Consult with a good trial attorney sooner rather than later. Never be afraid to fight for the truth.
