It’s all about you. We want to help you make the right legal decisions.

We strive to help you make confident insurance and legal decisions. Finding trusted and reliable insurance quotes and legal advice should be easy. This doesn’t influence our content. Our opinions are our own.

Editorial Guidelines: We are a free online resource for anyone interested in learning more about legal topics and insurance. Our goal is to be an objective, third-party resource for everything legal and insurance related. We update our site regularly, and all content is reviewed by experts.

If the matter is one that would be considered petty but you feel you have been wronged and you want to sue as a matter of principle to show them – wisdom suggests that you might sleep on the matter first.

Just because you were harmed or slighted or suffered minor damage does not automatically mean that you have a real legal case and should sue. We suggest that if the matter involves few dollars, you consider forgetting it or going to small claims court. No lawyer would be able to spend any of his or her valuable time on a shirt that the dry cleaner ruined, a small parking lot dent to a parked car, or a lower raise than you had hoped for at work.
