The economy has posed hardships for most people, and as a result there has been a rise in lawsuits. We mind our business, and then BOOM! papers stating that we have been served are thrown in our face. Why? Lawsuits are all about money. But can take a great toll on your patience, time, and Nonprofit Organization.

There are five steps to take to survive through a lawsuit including: get a lawyer, determine payments, responding, collecting and acting, and settlement. Unsteady emotions can lead to things we may regret, so get a lawyer that you can relate with on a personal level is the most critical step. The next step is to figure out how you will pay for the lawyer. Your Nonprofit Insurance coverage may take care of some of this, but there needs to be an agreement between you and the lawyer. Next, you must choose to respond or not respond to the complaints. The lawyer then collects documents about the opponent and creates a defense for you. Finally, the settlement is reached. Most often cases do not go to trial, but can reach a point of common ground through the lawyers alone.
