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:


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. Also a great resource for law students.
This new edition is completely updated to include the latest rules and court procedures.
