Discovery is a very important process for contested cases. If Discovery is done correctly, it can provide important INFORMATION, much needed PROOF, CONFESSIONS, and TESTIMONY that may be introduced at the trial.
Information obtained in Discovery can show you the significant strengths and hidden weaknesses of your case.
Sending a discovery request is optional - Answering a discovery request is MANDATORY!
"Interrogatories" are usually written questions that are answered in writing and under oath. See more about Discovery Interrogatories on our Document Preparation page. We can assist you by drafting INVESTIGATIVE , EFFECTIVE and PROBING questions and request for important documents SPECIFIC to your case.
