Understanding Interrogatories Law
Parties to a lawsuit seldom have all the facts when the lawsuit has been filed. Pretrial discovery is therefore an important means for the parties to gather this information. Interrogatories are one such means of discovery. Interrogatories are written questions asked by one party to another in civil litigation. The parties who are asked interrogatories are required to truthfully answer the questions. Interrogatories help each party learn more about the specific issues in a case, and are a vital part of the pretrial discovery process. The information collected in interrogatories can help business attorneys determine who should be deposed and which documents should be requested.
It is crucial that your lawyer understands how to formulate appropriate questions and respond adequately to the opposition’s queries. I am Austin business lawyer John McDuff. With more than 30 years of experience as a business litigator, I provide strong legal representation throughout pretrial discovery and beyond.
Helping Clients Offer Thoughtful, Concise Responses to Interrogatories
There is definitely a strategic element in truthfully answering interrogatories. When you have been served with interrogatories, I will help you answer these questions to the best of your ability without providing our opposition with unnecessary information.
In Texas courts, each party is initially limited to 25 total interrogatories, including subparts. I will make each question count. While some lawyers rely on “canned” interrogatories, my law firm carefully drafts questions designed to flesh out important parts of your case and prove what needs to be proved at trial. When you work with my law firm, you can take comfort knowing that I will not delegate any part of your case. My diligent preparation in these pretrial stages regularly yields positive outcomes for my clients later on in the case.
