Control Corrupt Courts!

16 Mar

( From “How to Win in Court” Course )
Click or Call 866-LAW-EASY Toll Free!

Instead of writing a long Tips & Tactics newsletter this week, I thought I’d show you how to control corrupt courts!

You won’t believe me, but most lawyers (and nearly all law school professors) don’t have a clue what it takes to win in the real world.

That’s right!

Law school teaches all sorts of things … but not how to control judges nor how to overcome scheming tricks of crooked lawyers!

Law school is not the real world. Most professors never practiced law. Moreover, to keep their jobs they must be too politically correct to teach law students how some judges are biased or corrupt and how to overcome the scheming tricks of crooked lawyers.

What law students learn in law school is legal theory and the fundamentals required to pass the Bar Exam … not much practical knowledge!

Theory doesn’t win lawsuits.

You need to win your lawsuit!

You need to know what’s important, what’s not, and how to focus your energy where it belongs: getting court orders!

Most lawyers never learn this.

All the posturing, big words, flamboyant behavior, lapel-thumbing, courtroom strutting accomplishes nothing!

The only thing that matters is the ink flowing from a judge’s pen when he signs court orders.

You must know how to control corrupt judges and overcome crooked lawyers. You must be able to re-direct the judge’s bias and the lawyers’ sneaky tricks!

There’s a reason why lawyer jokes proliferate.

There’s a reason why so many complain about high-minded, high-handed judges who ignore the law.

Political correctness prevents justice!

Winning lawsuits is a brutal, no-holds-barred, axe fight!

Jurisdictionary is your axe!

How to Fight Fraud

19 Jul
Win with Jurisdictionary!Today’s Tips & Tactics will help all of you who are fighting banks, credit card companies, and anyone else who fraudulently claims you owe them money!
If you’re an honest person being sued by a dishonest creditor, today’s Tips & Tactics may save you a load of cash … if you do things the way you’ll learn in myofficial affordable 24-hour step-by step  Jurisdictionary self-help course!

There’s a reason for the phrase, “Put it in writing!”

Every jurisdiction we know of adopts a common law principle known as the “Statute of Frauds” so people wishing to sue you for any promise they say you made to them must offer written evidence of that promise …signed by you!

No writing, no lawsuit.

It could be a mortgage, promissory note, lease, credit card application, or any other promise they say you made.

In some states, if the promise was to perform some service that was to be performed in less than one year, or to pay less than $500 for some item like a lawn mower or bicycle, no writing is required … but if the promise was for more than a year or more than a small amount of money, the Statute of Frauds bars the lawsuitif there is no writing signed by you!

So, what’s the first thing you do when you’re sued for a promise you did not make?You demand to see the original writing that bears your signature!

How do you do that?

You use what’s called a Request for Production. The other side has a certain time period within which to comply. If they don’t produce (and many times they’ll put up some bogus objection) you file a Motion to Compel Production and set your motion for hearing. If you do this the way we teach in our 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary self-help course, the judge will ORDER them to produce … and if they fail to obey the order their case will be dismissed!

You do not use a subpoena to get documents from the opposing party. You use a Request for Production, and you can use it to get other things as well, if they will likely lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.

Help Your Friends!
Forward this email and this link so they can get the Lawsuit Flowchart so your friends can see how easy it is to win.

I explain in the Jurisdictionary course how a client came to me after being sued by Sears for a credit card debt. He told me he never had a Sears card, so I served the plaintiff with a Request for Production demanding to see “every document signed by the defendant”. Sears had 30 days to respond.

On the 29th day I got a call from Sears’ lawyer saying they couldn’t find any documents signed by my client and asking for an extension of time.

I refused.

The case was dismissed.

Because of the present economic crisis, some judges make an effort to lean favorably toward creditors who come to court without sufficient evidence. If you don’t know what we teach in the Jurisdictionary course, you might find yourself on the short end of a long judgment against you for a debt you truly do not owe. It’s happening far too frequently.

Of course the practice of requiring the other side to prove their case (using Requests for Production and your other powerful evidence discovery tools) is a practice you cannot afford to ignore.

Proof is what lawsuits are all about.

Learn how to prove your position … and how to force the other side to prove theirs!

Losers believe in fables and get their legal education at the barbershop or expensive weekend seminars or websites run by people who never practiced law, never went to law school, and don’t know mud from sand about the rules of court or how to use them to prevent fraud.

Protect yourself from lawyers and judges!

It’s easy, once you understand “due process”.

Due process IS your most valuable right.

Due process is your most valuable right, because without the ability to win in court, the rest of your “rights” are just political rhetoric, promises with no power.

The Constitution of the United States promises you the protection of due process, but it doesn’t tell you what due process is or how to get it!

Jurisdictionary was created by a lawyer with more than 23 years of experience winning lawsuits!

Winners learn the rules of evidence, the rules of procedure, and how to use the rules to control corrupt judges and overcome crooked lawyers.

Learn how to protect yourself!

People who have our course tell us an average 8th grader can understand it all in a single weekend.

The complete 4-CD course is still only $249.

If you have a lawyer, you can save thousands in legal fees just by knowing what the lawyer should be doing to win.

If you don’t have a lawyer, you’ll know how to stop the opponent’s crooked tactics and get the judge on your side!

The key to winning is knowing how to use the rules!

  • The Rules of Evidence
  • The Rules of Procedure

That’s all there is to it.

The rules are actually simpler than the official rules of major league baseball …believe it or not!

Summary Judgment – The Trap

14 Jul

 

Here’s how to avoid the summary judgment trap! 

Summary judgment can be a good thing – when it’s working for you!

It can mean the end of litigation in your favor, victory without a fight.

It can save months and even years of money-draining litigation sorrows.

But!

If your opponent files a motion for summary judgment against you, the result can be immediate defeat if you don’t apply what I teach you.

Banks and other powerful opponents do this routinely. They start with a laundry list of affidavits by which they wish the court to believe they’ve “proven” the facts of their case (inadmissible affidavits, by the way), and their lawyer points to the paperwork, files a motion for summary judgment, and insists the case has already been proven.

That is almost never the truth.

It’s a trap!

Here’s what you need to know!

Summary judgment is provided by Rule 56 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and by state court rules in every state in our Republic. All the states follow the federal rule closely. There may be a few minor differences but, in general, the rule and the principles are identical.

Either party (plaintiff or defendant) may file the motion.

The motion must allege (and the moving party must ultimately prove) “there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that the moving party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law.”

Danger!

There is almost always at least some “genuine issue as to a material fact” that precludes summary judgment.

But!

If you don’t understand what is meant by “genuine issue” or “material fact”, you will lose … needlessly!

I’ve been an attorney nearly a quarter-century. I’ve read a h— of a lot of cases in those years, believe me. And, in all that reading I discovered that summary judgments are routinely set aside on appeal! That’s right. The majority of summary judgment orders are reversed on appeal.

Don’t believe me?

Go to any online legal research cite and enter the following search terms: precludes w/4 summary (i.e., search the case law in your appellate jurisdiction for the word “precludes” appearing within 4 words of “summary”).

Hit “Enter” and sit back and watch the cases fly onto your screen one-after-another. I just pulled up 151 of them here in Florida’s state appellate decisions.

Read a few dozen and you’ll see what I mean.

Don’t be trapped by summary judgment motions!

The key to winning (whether you’re the one defending or the one filing the motion) is the rule itself and preparation for appeal that’s made simple enough for an 8th grader to understand using my affordable Jurisdictionary step-by-step self-help course.

Read the rule … state or federal.

Also read the cases that explain the rule and how it is applied by the appellate courts to determine if summary judgment is proper or not.

The motion is evaluated on the following grounds: “the pleadings, depositions, answers to interrogatories, and admissions on file,together with affidavits, if any”.

So many of you don’t yet understand the power of your five (5) discovery tools and the importance of firing them off at the first opportunity in your case. By requests for admissions, requests for production, interrogatories, and a deposition or two along with a few subpoenas you can make it clear there are “genuine issues of material fact” in the record … precluding summary judgment.

The other fortress against summary judgment is built by drafting powerful pleadings (whether you’re the plaintiff or defendant). The pleadings (complaint and answer with affirmative defenses) are the first defense against losing on a summary judgment motion, because your pleadings raise the issues that you’re competing for. If you file weak pleadings (plaintiff or defendant) you offer your opponent an opportunity to charge ahead with summary judgment.

Weak pleadings followed by delayed discovery opens the door for your opponent to argue, “There are no genuine issues of material fact in the record,” and that’s all he needs to win.

My Jurisdictionary course shows you how to draft powerful pleadings in easy steps with explanations and examples of the forms most commonly used.

The courts are jammed with litigation. In most states, it can take months just to schedule a simple hearing. Most judges welcome opportunities to grant summary judgment, because it clears the case off the docket!

Beware! The judge wants to enter summary judgment. Not because you are pro se. Not because he hates you. Not because he plays golf with the lawyer on the other side. But, because he wants to clear his clogged calendar of pending cases that are backing up because of the glut of litigation that is delaying justice for good people!

You must prepare with lawsuit know-how or lose!

Solid pleadings create an impenetrable barrier to entry of summary judgment orders. They plainly state the genuine issues of material fact. If they are “verified” (as I teach in my affordable 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary self-help course they should always be) then you have built a protective wall around your case. The genuine issues of material fact are in your pleadings! Your pleadings cannot be changed by your opponent. You state your “genuine issues of material fact” in your complaint or answer and affirmative defenses, and protect yourself from summary judgment motions filed by the other side!

Prompt discovery provides an additional barrier against summary judgment rulings. When the other side cannot produce documents you’ve properly requested according to the rules, and those documents would tend to prove your case, then a “genuine issue of material fact” is established that precludes entry of summary judgment. The same can be said of requests for admissions, interrogatories, answers to deposition questions, and so forth.

And, of course, the importance of arranging in advance to have every proceeding recorded by an official court reporter and to arrange in advance for obtaining a certified transcript afterward to prove everything said or done in court cannot be overstressed! Like the Chinese Laundry operator used to say, “No ticky. No washy.” If you don’t arrange in advance for a certified transcript to be available to you after every in-court proceeding, you’ve telegraphed permission for the judge to do whatever the judge wishes to do … and that include knocking your case off his busy calendar by granting summary judgment, because without a court record the judge knows he cannot be reversed on appeal! No transcript. No appeal.

It breaks my heart to learn how many of you are beaten by summary judgment and other tactics by unscrupulous lawyers who don’t care about truth or justice or fairness or anything beyond a newer sports car and a bigger swimming pool in their backyard.

You don’t have to lose just because you’re pro se!

I receive emails every day from people who believe that lie … people who’d rather complain about their losses and blame anyone but their own unwillingness to learn. This is not the spirit that once made America great, my friends.

Learn Rule 56 (or the corresponding rule in your state court). Read a few dozen cases you can find online using the search terms given above.

Educate yourselves on something other than the insidious silver-bullet nonsense that is so prevalent on the internet these days.

People who say justice is impossible for pro se litigants are misinformed.

Justice most certainly is possible … for those who take my affordable 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary self-help course.

If you want to learn the rules at the law library and not pay for my course, that’s fine with me. But, please stop believing those who saypro se justice is impossible.

I will say this: Justice IS impossible for those who don’t yet know how to command the courts as I teach.

Finally, please know this about me and my success in court: I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I have never belonged to a country club. I didn’t win cases by being one of the “good old boys”. For most of my life I was common as dirt. I didn’t get my chance to go to law school until I was 39. That was 28 years ago. I won on a regular basis in spite of the odds against me because I believe in the rules of due process and, after 10 years of fumbling around in the dark, I finally learned how to use those rules effectively to control judges and get justice for my clients!

Until I was 42 years old and passed the bar exam, I had to work as hard or harder than any of you just to make ends meet! I was a ferry boat skipper. I ran fishing boats. I swung a hammer and pushed a saw and carried sheets of plywood and 2×4’s. I had a job pulling beers in a southern bar where pickled eggs, pigs feet, and boiled peanuts were the food du jour. I scraped barnacles off boat bottoms. I climbed tall radio towers to replace light bulbs. I once spent weeks inside unfinished sailboats grinding fiberglass in the Miami heat, enduring the itch of fiberglass dust mixed with sweat and occasional blood from the cuts of sharp edges of newly laid fiberglass material. At one point in my long career of unimaginables, I drove a Frosty root beer truck delivering cases of soda to country stores in the farmlands east of Tampa. I worked my way through undergraduate school at Florida State (because my family could not afford to send me to college) installing short wave radios in fire trucks and ambulances. I didn’t make enough to go to an ivy league school. For years I lived in rented one-room apartments and got about on a bicycle, because I couldn’t afford a car or gasoline. For nearly 9 years of my adult life I lived in small beat-up old sailboats, no air-conditioning, no refrigerator, no TV.

I know what most of you are going through!

I want to help you!

But, you need help yourselves and others!

I didn’t win most of my cases by sucking up to the good old boys! I won by learning how to use the rules, and you can learn, too!

We can win the war against corruption in this nation and be the example Adams and Paine and Washington intended us to be … but we must do it according to The Rules of Law and with due process, not foolish fables.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOSE!

Believing internet fables, even if they were true, isn’t going to help you or your family. Joining the crowd that can only complain and point fingers isn’t making things better for any of us.

The true patriots who are making things better for all of us (or, at least, trying their best to do so) are those who fight for victories over corruption using due process and the Rule of Law for which too many good men and women have already given their lives.

Let us honor those who gave their all for the sake of liberty and due process by renewing our pledge to the cause of Justice … overcoming the corruption in our courts by forcing judges to obey the rules too many have already died for!

Please don’t send me emails telling me the courts are corrupt. I know first-hand about corruption. That’s why I created Jurisdictionary in the first place. I know judges who are so corrupt they should be horse-whipped. I know lawyers who are so corrupt they don’t know how to stop lying, even when they aren’t in court.

But! I also know how to win … and you can, too!

I’d appreciate receiving some emails this week thanking me for Jurisdictionary instead of attacking me for not joining the milieu of madness that has little to offer beyond telling us what’s wrong. Most of us already know what’s wrong. What we need is for more of you to discover that the only way to deal with corruption is to overcome it!

Complaining about corruption alone does not stop it!

When corruption is in the courts, the way to win is to rub the judges’ noses in their very own rules!

Good judges will do what’s right.

BAd judges fear being reversed on appeal.

I didn’t win for a quarter-century by belonging to the “good old boys” network. I don’t belong to any fraternity or secret society. I hate the good old boys for a number of personal reasons I may write about in my autobiography someday, if anyone is interested. I hate all they stand for. I hate their abuse of people who don’t know how to fight back. I hate their cruelty. I hate their arrogance!

So I created Jurisdictionary so YOU can fight back!

The choice is yours, after all.

I cannot make you believe what I say.

You simply need to try my methods and see for yourself what the people who wrote those testimonials at the right have discovered. →

If you already have my course, urge EVERYONE to get the course and stop the courthouse corruption that is destroying our nation and putting your children’s future in peril of being utterly destroyed by the elitist agenda to rule us all by taking away our voice and our right to be heard in court on the public record!

If you don’t yet have my course, order it today and find out for yourself just how powerful you can be with just a little bit of practical lawsuit know-how!

Help us restore due process to our nation, please!

Learn how to use the rules to command justice!

Help us overcome the evil of this age!

Do it for your children!

To win in court you must fight tooth-and-nail!

This isn’t a parlor game!

This is war!

The rules of due process are the People’s Power to control the machine we call government and get the redress for our grievances that millions died for!

My profession has hidden the rules of due process from you and from the rest of the public, so lawyers can charge exorbitant fees to do what any 8th grader can do after learning how with my affordable 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary self-help course.

Due process is your #1 right, because without it none of your other “rights” are enforceable in court!

But! To enforce your rights you need to use the rules!

The Constitution mentions due process. It doesn’t begin to explainwhat due process is or how to use it to control courts … and thereby to control judges, lawyers, giant banks, high-minded government officials, or even angry neighbors!

Can we Americans afford not to learn the rules?

Due process is the power of the people to control their government by controlling the courts!

Jurisdictionary believes it’s criminal for a government to refuse to teach its People how to use due process to enforce the People’s God-given rights! But, our leaders refuse to teach us the rules by which they control us!

Jurisdictionary also believes it’s criminal to promote legal people fables or to urge people to believe justice is impossible! Corruption is real. We know that. But those who know the rules and how to use them get justice for themselves in our courts, if their cause is just!

If you agree with us, please help us by telling others what we teach. If they don’t want to buy my course, that’s fine. Let them go to the law libraries and learn the official rules from the official books. But, PLEASE PROMOTE OUR VISION!

Until we Americans learn the RULES of due process, we cannot possibly hope to control those who hold the reins of government power … and at this critical hour we have very little time to take control of our government!

Some leaders in Congress are hell-bent to enforce laws on us that will totally remove our right to due process!

America needs to go to court!

Every last one of us simply must learn how to control the nonsense coming out of our courts today. Every last one of us must learn how to overcome crooked lawyers using the “official rules”, instead of internet mythology.

It isn’t hard to learn!

It really isn’t.

But, if we refuse to learn it will be US who’ll be to blame when America falls to the powerful elite we are allowing to rob us of our heritage and even our morality as a people.

Please help me promote due process knowledge!

Support Jurisdictionary!

Or, you can follow the advice of the internet nutcases who tell you to challenge the judge’s oath of office, or to claim your NAME IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS isn’t you, or to insist because there’s a fringe on the courtroom flag that the court is operating under admiralty law, or some other absolute nonsense that will end up getting you destroyedand giving even more power to the ruthless lawyers and judges who steal from the poor to give to the rich and rob your children and their future of the moral framework that makes human happiness possible!

If you don’t want lawyers and judges to rule the world, learn the official rules of due process that control them!

We are running out of options!

To learn more, visit my web site: Jurisdictionary.

You may find this hard to believe, however today’s law schools don’t teach law students what it takes to win! They don’t teach how to use the rules of evidence and rules of procedure to overcome crooked lawyers and control corrupt, arrogant, high-minded judges, because it isn’t “politically correct” to tell the truth about this “profession”. But, knowing how to control judges and overcome crooked lawyers is what it’s all about!

The typical lawyer will play every dirty trick in the book, but it’s not a judge’s job to interfere. The judge is not allowed to interfere. But! You can prevent the lawyer on the other side from getting away with his or her dirty tricks once you know how to force the judge to put a stop to it using the RULES!

There’s a reason why there are more critical jokes about lawyers than all the rest of the professions combined! You cannot afford to let lawyers side-step the rules and destroy your future, your finances, and your family!

Learn how to force the judge to enforce the rules!

Know the truth that law schools refuse to teach!

Learn how to use official court rules in an effective, tactical manner that demands compliance and obtains justice for you!

Jurisdictionary will show you how in just 24 hours!

Law schools teach 3 years of theory, but many professors never practiced law, and those who have any experience in court are teaching instead of doing. Ask yourself why. A good lawyer can make several times what a tenured law professor can pull down teaching. Do the math!

This is good news for you!

In reality, perhaps a majority of lawyers don’t have a clue what they’re doing … so, once you know what the 24-hour Jurisdictionary course teaches step-by-step, you’ll actually have an advantage … becauseyou’ll know what law schools refuse to teach!

Due process isn’t difficult at all, but it is an axe fight!

Sharpen your axe with Jurisdictionary!

Nothing else works!

Even if you have thousands to pay lawyers to go to court for you, Jurisdictionary can save you money by showing you what your lawyer should be doing to earn his or her pay.

If you can’t afford a lawyer (or don’t trust them) then this affordable 24-hour step-by-step course is just what you need to protect your God-given rights from abuse.

Learn the process of due process that lawyers don’t want you to know … and stand up for your rights effectively!

And, nobody makes it easier than Jurisdictionary!

Do what Jurisdictionary teaches, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you find the judge is on your side!

Casey Anthony & Lawyer Know-How

05 Jul

Casey Anthony

What did the lawyers need to know?

If you believe they needed to go to law school to learn how to do what they did, you’re dead wrong!

Think!

  • They called witnesses.
  • They reviewed evidence.
  • They made objections.
  • They argued over jury instructions.

What else?

Think about it, please.

Just go over in your mind what you saw of the trial on TV. Or, if you haven’t watched, go back over what you’ve seen on “Law & Order” or any other TV show or movie that depicts trials and court proceedings.

Was any of it all that complicated?

Did any of it require a law school education?

What did the lawyers REALLY NEED TO KNOW?

The Defense was often maligned by the media, but they got the job done by raising reasonable doubt. The prosecution provided a superb closing argument, but their case did not give any real proof that Casey Anthony murdered her daughter. The explanation given by the defense that described the child drowning in the family swimming pool could not be dismissed. No matter how much the mother lied to police and her family, there was absolutely no way to show what really happened to cause Caylee Anthony’s death. Those facts added up to a not guilty finding on all of the major counts. Casey was only found guilty on multiple counts of lying to a law enforcement official, which the defense admitted to multiple times. It may have taken weeks and seemed extremely complicated, but the concepts were actually very simple.

Let me tell you.

Think!

The lawyers needed to know only the following:

  1. the fact elements of the crimes charged,
  2. the available evidence that would establish (or oppose) those fact elements,
  3. how to get evidence admitted to the record,
  4. how to question witnesses on the stand,
  5. how to object when the judge or other side went outside the rules, and
  6. how to argue convincingly.

Six things any average 8th grader can master with just 24-hours with my official Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” step-by-step course!

Seriously!

#1 – We all know how to find fact elements of crimes charged. They’re set out in statute books and spelled out in jury instructions. No law school education required!

#2 – Evidence is found by law enforcement or dragged out of witnesses … willing or unwilling. It doesn’t require much of lawyers other than to follow leads. It certainly does not require a 3-year law school education! It’s all simple, step-by-step common-sense mixed with a bit of work digging for the facts! Nothing complicated at all!

#3 – Getting evidence admitted requires nothing more than a passing knowledge of a few evidence rules. (Only 13 pages in federal cases and not much more in the 50 states.) Nothing that requires 3 years in law school.

#4 – Questioning witnesses requires knowing only a few rules. None of these is complex or more than an average 8th grader can understand. Here are a few: (1) you may not lead your own witness, (2) you may not ask a witness what was said by someone who is not in court, (3) you may not ask a witness to guess what someone else was thinking, (4) you cannot ask a witness to guess at facts (unless the witness is an expert). These few rules can be learned by anyone in a matter of hours … not 3 years at an expensive law school!

#5 – Learning how to object effectively requires nothing more than reading my tutorial on courtroom objections. There are only a few objections to learn. If you’ve been following the Casey Anthony trial, you heard the same ones repeated again and again – and none of them were too complicated for an average 8th grader to learn. The lawyers would have you believe it’s all too complicated, so you can hire one and pay through the nose!

#6 – Finally, how to argue convincingly is something we are either born with or can learn by arguing with family members and friends about baseball or how to fry chicken. It isn’t rocket science or differential calculus! It’s just a process of building facts one upon another until your facts outweigh those of your opponent. Law schools don’t teach this, anyway.

So? What did the lawyers need to know?

Nothing that isn’t covered thoroughly and simply-put in my official 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” course.

Think!

If you’ve been watching the trial, you saw the lawyers call witnesses and present evidence. You saw them make objections.

What else did they need to know?

Just what I’ve said in this newsletter – nothing more!

  • Fact elements, and
  • How to get those fact elements into evidence.

THAT’S ALL YOU NEED KNOW TO WIN YOUR CASE!

If yours is a civil case, you go after fact elements of causes of action pleaded by the plaintiff or elements of the affirmative defenses pleaded by the defendant. All explained fully in my course.

If yours is a criminal case, you go after facts to show there is “reasonable doubt” as to the reliability of facts presented by the prosecution. Similarly covered in my course.

Learning elements and how to get facts into evidence is a simple, straightforward process any average 8th grader can learn in just 24 hours with my official, affordable, 24-hour, Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” course that will lay it all out for you step-by-step.

Due process is your most valuable right, because without the ability to win in court, the rest of your “rights” are just political rhetoric, promises with no power.

The Constitution of the United States promises you the protection of due process, but it doesn’t tell you what due process is or how to get it!

Due process is a P-R-O-C-E-S-S … and you’ve been DENIED knowledge of what that process is and how to use it to protect your rights!

Lawyers have seen to that … and it’s high time YOU learned what due process is, how it works, and how to use it to protect yourself and your loved ones from any and all abuses of your fundamental God-given rights!

What good are Constitutional Guarantees if you cannot afford to pay some law firm $50,000 to work the process for you? The Constitution itself is just a piece of paper with no power whatever beyond the power of men in high places to sign papers that order other people to do “what’s right”. If you are relying on the Constitution to protect your rights, you are falling into the very trap that my profession wants you to fall into – relying on them who must be paid to protect your rights!

Fortunately, there’s another way!

For the first time in history, the mysteries of due process hidden from you and your children by lawyers all these years are now made easy-to-understand at last – thanks to the internet, multi-media technologies, and the official Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” 24-hour, step-by-step self-help course!

The secrets of “due process” are now revealed!

You don’t need a law degree to understand due process. Jurisdictionary simplifies the mysteries lawyers want to keep from you: pleadings, motions, depositions, subpoenas, evidence rules, courtroom objections, etc. The legal profession would have you believe you aren’t smart enough to learn what it takes to win in court, but all you have to do is read our testimonials to see how people just like you ARE WINNING!

Teaching people due process is my passion and the moral imperative of everyone who loves Liberty enough to work for Justice through our courts.

Even if you have thousands of dollars to pay lawyers to go to court for you, Jurisdictionary can help you save money by showing you in simplified teachings just what your lawyer could and should be doing to earn his or her pay.

If you can’t afford a lawyer (or don’t trust them) then this affordable 24-hour step-by-step course is just what you need to protect your other God-given rights from abuse.

Are your rights being abused?

Do you see the rights of others being abused?

Take it to the courts!

Exercise your most valuable right!

Confessions of a Lawyer

08 Oct

A lot of people think that law school teaches everything there is to know about being a lawyer. In truth, almost everything practical I learned about being a lawyer, I learned in practice after I graduated. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t knock my law school experience. Law school taught me critical thinking skills that I use on a daily basis. But most of what I learned about the nuts and bolts of practicing law I didn’t get sitting in a class room.

Law school can’t possibly teach all you need to know. There are so many unique issues in legal practice, so many variations from one jurisdiction to the next, so many local rules, so many differences in the way different court rooms operate. So when a new issue comes my way that I don’t know how to deal with, what do I do? How do I get started?

I research. I read. I ask around. As a lawyer getting started (and even to this day), I spent time in the library (both law library and public library) and online. I always find myself asking fellow lawyers what to do about situations. This is not a bad thing. Any lawyer who doesn’t do these things is committing malpractice.

I find that one of the best ways to familiarize myself with an area of the law is to use quality legal self-help materials. These are practical guides that teach about legal issues. These guides won’t teach you everything. You also have to review relevant statutes, case law, and local rules that apply to your case, but it is certainly a great place to start.

Nolo is a great resource for legal self-help materials that I have used on numerous occasions. Link to them below to see if they have materials for your legal issue.



 

The Unbundling of Legal Services

04 Oct

What can you do if you have a legal issue for which you cannot afford to retain a lawyer (but you do have some money) or you feel the issue is simple enough for you to handle on your own, but you need a little guidance? Perhaps you would like to use a lawyer for certain parts of your case such as:

  • To provide advice, information about the law, procedures to follow;
  • Completing crucial forms;
  • Review forms you prepared;
  • Conducting legal research; or
  • Representation at critical court hearings (perhaps you want to represent yourself to reach a settlement but want a lawyer in case the case goes to trial).

A lawyer providing limited representation for a client must follow Rule 1.2 division (c) of the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct which states:

“A lawyer may limit the scope of a new or existing representation if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and communicated to the client, preferably in writing.”

So as long as the limited representation is reasonable under the circumstances and preferably in writing, then it is allowable. However, many lawyers are still reluctant to enter into such agreements. Some find it difficult to communicate the limitations and fear misunderstandings with the client. Some are busy enough representing clients on a full-time basis that they don’t need to engage in limited representation. Others are just traditionalists and historically, this was not how legal services were rendered. Some attorneys will provide limited representation as long as it does not involve appearing in court. It is difficult to start handling a matter without knowing what previously happened in court. Also, once an attorney makes an appearance in court, the court must approve a subsequent withdrawal.

This should not stop you from inquiring about a limited representation arrangement if you feel it is right for you in your situation. This site’s administrator, Jason Kasunick, is an Ohio attorney who does engage in limited representation arrangements under the right circumstances.
