Good morning. No, the lawsuit would only be over with if you settle or go to trial. In this case, if you do not think it is in your best interest to settle and want to go to trial, you have that right and need to advise your attorney of the same. Until this is signed and agreed to by the parties, you can change your mind and should advise your attorney of the same today.

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.
