Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, you must request a jury trial in your initial pleading/initial filing (complaint) in order to be entitled to one. That said, you can still file a motion and request a jury trial, but it is up to the judge's discretion as to whether or not to grant it.
If you want to attempt this, you should try to get a motion for a jury trial filed first thing next week in order to give you the best chance and the most time to get it approved.
