I have been wronged. Should I sue?

If the matter is one that would be considered petty but you feel you have been wronged and you want to sue as a matter of principle to show them - wisdom suggests that you might sleep on the matter first.

Just because you were harmed or slighted or suffered minor damage does not automatically mean that you have a real legal case and should sue. We suggest that if the matter involves few dollars, you consider forgetting it or going to small claims court. No lawyer would be able to spend any of his or her valuable time on a shirt that the dry cleaner ruined, a small parking lot dent to a parked car, or a lower raise than you had hoped for at work.
