Using a Settlement Letter to Resolve Your Lawsuit

Updated: Apr 26

A settlement letter is a letter you (as the defendant) can send the plaintiff before the trial hearing date so you can ask the plaintiff to dismiss the case and avoid going to court. Sending a settlement letter may be a good idea if:

  • You have evidence to prove that you do not owe the plaintiff any money.

  • You do owe the plaintiff money, but you have evidence to show that you owe the plaintiff less than what they claim.

  • You want to offer to pay the plaintiff to avoid having to go to court.

  • You acknowledge that you owe the plaintiff money but would need to repay in smaller payments over time.

Settlement letter contents

  • Introduction explaining why you are sending the letter

  • Information supporting why what you are asking is reasonable

  • Request for action from the plaintiff
