Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience.

This is an extremely broad question. For starters, you need to make sure you filed a valid cause of action that is grounded in law, and that you have evidence to meet each element of your cause of action, so that your case doesn't get kicked out on summary judgment.

There is no way to ensure your lawsuit doesn't get dismissed on "any" grounds. Attorneys deal with this on a daily basis, and many attorneys have their client's cases dismissed even after they argue the merits of whatever motion is being filed. Your best bet is to have an attorney who is familiar with the rules of civil procedure represent you.
