It has been over a year since the claim was filed and state has been in receipt of the claim.
I suggest you not act as your own attorney; aside from all the issues in non-Title 59 cases they present additional problems. Remember also, while the paperwork and discovery have their own landmines, where the rubber meets the road is at a trial--now you will simply be outclassed. Try to hire a lawyer.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.
