What is the name of your state? Nevada

Can I legally attempt to settle a law suit against a New Jersey Co. before I serve that Complaint which has already been filed? I filed it to stay within the statue of limitations but I intend to amend it before serving it which I understand I have 120 days to do.

My response:

The law encourages settlement at any time.
