I want to sue, what should I do?

A small claims matter may cost about $2,000 or less to have an attorney help. A lawsuit in a county courthouse may cost as little as $15,000. A jury trial costs over $35,000. In each of these situations, there are many ways for the costs to change. Sometimes, filing a lawsuit causing everyone to take negotiations more seriously and the suit is dismissed, which saves a lot of money and time.

I had never had any experience as a business owner before. There were many worries and concerns when making the decision to buy a business. I came to Surge Business Law Firm just because I read good reviews from others and hoped this law firm could really help me/us. After our initial consultation, my partners and I decided to choose Surge Business Law Firm to help us set up our business and guide us through the purchasing process. Matt and Jacqueline did tremendous work to help us overcome the obstacles we faced. They were very proactive on checking for any harm to our business and finding ways to protect our business. Matt and Jacqueline had guided us through every small step to resolve all legal issues from the beginning process until closing. If you are new to setting up your business or need a legal assistant for your business, I would recommend Surge Business Law Firm to you. Like us, you can feel secure when choosing Surge Business Law Firm. They are also very friendly, responsive and fun to work with 🙂

As a lawyer myself, I never thought I’d say this, but even lawyers need a good lawyer. Especially when it comes to the wild world of tech startups. That’s where Matt Nuzum comes in.I was drowning in legal complexities and bad code, trying to salvage my legal tech startup. Developers had taken advantage, I’d lost money, and my dream seemed lost. But then I found Matt.He’s not just a lawyer; he’s a tech-savvy lawyer. He understood my situation, spoke my language (both legal and tech!), and offered clear, actionable advice. He didn’t just tell me what I couldn’t do; he helped me find a way forward.His guidance was invaluable. Matt wasn’t just professional, he was genuinely invested in my success. He took the time to understand my goals, my challenges, and my anxieties. He made me feel heard and supported, which is priceless in the chaotic world of startups.So, if you’re a lawyer, entrepreneur, or anyone navigating the intersection of technology and business, do yourself a favor and call Matt Nuzum. You won’t regret it!

Matt set up LLCs for our rental properties – from the initial planning meeting full of our questions to getting the final docs, it couldn’t have been easier. Good communication, fair pieces, expert help. He’s now our go-to for everything legal for our rental jbusiness. Thanks Matt!

I’m not even under contract (yet) and Matt has been absolutely AMAZING! He has taken the time to take phone calls, offer guidance, and follows up at just the right times. I can’t say enough fantastic things about Matt and his service. We are beyond thankful and feel at ease knowing Matt is caring for us and our small business.
