Represent yourself in court, prepare & try a winning civil case, Paul Bergman, J.D. & Attorney Sara J. Berman ; cartoons by Mike Twohy

Many disputes are too big for small claims court but too small to justify a lawyer?s fee. Fortunately, if you?re willing to learn the courtroom ropes, you can successfully handle your own case from start to finish. Represent Yourself in Court breaks the pretrial and trial process down into easy-to-understand steps. Armed with these clear and thorough instructions, you?ll be well prepared to: draft and file court papers, get help from an attorney or legal coach, obtain and prepare your evidence, including social media postings, handle depositions, line up, prepare, and examine witnesses, present an opening statement, make and respond to objections, pick a jury if necessary, and, deal with the court clerk and judge. Whether you?re a plaintiff or a defendant, this book will help you handle a bankruptcy, divorce, landlord-tenant dispute, breach of contract case, small business dispute?or any other civil lawsuit. The 11th edition is completely updated to include remote court appearances. --, Back cover
