Everyone knows that if you are building a house, you have to make sure that you put in a foundation before you start to put up the walls. The same is true for a good legal case. There must be a strong foundation in order for the entire case to stand strong once every detail has been presented. Without this foundation a case can really start to fall apart when it is presented.
To help a lawyer build a strong case, it is important that they know some information about the case that will be presented from the other side. They can obtain this information by making motions before a trial to gain access to the items that they need to build their case. The NLPA offers pretrial services to make it so that your counsel will have access to all the information that they need.
