Customer Question
Im applying for a...

Im applying for a job and just signed a full disclosure, I had a personal injury lawsuit (that I filed) and won... will that go against me in my background check OR is it more important that I was not the defendant?

Lawyer's Assistant: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you have copies of the medical records?

It was in Florida. no records, its just a question on a background check.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

My case was filed as CP, It did not go to court, went through mediation

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, just if it will come back in a background check and if its a big deal

Civil litigation for the past 7 years typically shows up. Of course it depends on the particular information requested. Normally one lawsuit of a civil nature will not impact employment offers because it does not reveal anything negative whereas constant litigation would be a different concern, as would criminal.

Full disclosure goes to integrity so that's always important.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
