How to prepare and present a winning civil court case
Many disputes are too big for small claims court but too small to justify a lawyer's fee. Fortunately, if you are 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:
    - transition to law school, if you're a law student
    - file court papers
    - get help from an attorney or legal coach
    - obtain and prepare your evidence, including social media postings
    - handle depositions
    - line up and prepare witnesses
    - present an opening statement
    - cross examine hostile witnesses
    - make and respond to objections
    - pick a jury if necessary
    - deal with the court clerk and judge
Whether you are 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.
