Litigation is to be avoided.
It is expensive, and should only be used as a last resort.
Remember that obstinate bully in high school who would not listen to reason? Remember wasting your time on reasonable approaches to these people? These people grew up to be bureaucrats and worse.
They surround us.
That’s what litigation is for – when you can’t solve your problem any other way. We are prepared to litigate for your rights, but we always consider other, less expensive approaches first.
