Preparing for Hearings or Trial

10 Aug


Preparing for Hearings or Trial

Preparation is everything!

Whether you’re training for the Olympics or trying to win a case in court, winners know they must exercise, prepare themselves, and be ready for the competition.

If you do things the way I teach in my affordable,official, 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary“How to Win in Court” self-help course, you may not have to go to trial. Most court cases can be won before trial, if you follow a certain method of proceeding.

But! You will in all likelihood be required to prepare for and attend a few hearings and, if you don’t master what I teach in my course, you will probably have to prepare for and enter the trial arena for a final judgment.

Either way, you must prepare.

The best preparation begins when the case begins (whether you’re a plaintiff or defendant). Here is when you memorize the “pleadings” (i.e., the allegations of the plaintiff’s Complaint, the defendant’s Answer and Affirmative Defenses, and the plaintiff’s Reply to the defendant’s Affirmative Defenses.

These are the most important documents in any case! The allegations in these initial documents tell us what the parties intend to prove, indeed what they mustprove by the greater weight of admissible evidence in order to win.

Too many people worry about too many things that have nothing whatever to do with the allegations contained in the pleadings.

Everything begins and ends with the allegations contained in the initial pleadings.

If your case goes to trial, it will those allegations in your pleadings that you’ll be struggling to prove by bringing in MORE evidence in favor of your allegations than your opponent has in support of his.

Whether you’re at a hearing or a full-blown jury trial, the only facts that matter are those alleged by the pleadings. Other facts may be brought in by witnesses, documents, or tangible exhibits – but the only facts necessary are those that tend to prove or disprove the allegations of the pleadings. Everthing else is a waste of time and only results in muddying the waters and giving your opponent more opportunities to confuse the judge and discredit you!Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step

Now is the time to list the witnesses, documents, and tangible things you have (or can get with your 5 discovery tools explained in my course) that will tend to prove your allegations are true.

Now is the time to list the witnesses, documents, and tangible things you have (or can get with your 5 discovery tools explained in my course) that will tend to dis-prove the allegations of your opponent’s pleadings.

Now is the time to move the court to take judicial notice of all facts for which the court can be forced to take judicial notice.

Now is the time to move the court to take judicial notice of all laws that apply to the facts of the case.

Now is the time to file motions in limine to prevent your opponent from bringing in extraneous or prejudicial facts at trial.

Now is the time to file carefully-researched memoranda in support of your motions and overall legal position.

Now is the time to line up your witnesses, get affidavits of their testimony before you take their depositions, and then take their depositions so you can be assured their testimony at evidentiary hearings or trial will be what your witnesses “told” you it would be.

Now is the time to take depositions of your opponent’s witnesses, so you can undermine them and show they do not have first-hand knowledge of the facts your opponent intends to use them to present, or that they are biased, or that they are convicted felons or otherwise unreliable.

Now is the time to order my affordable, official, 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” self-help course and begin to study it carefully so you don’t find yourself behind the 8-ball when it comes time for hearingsor trial.

If you do things my way, you may not have to go to trial at all.


Win Without Risking Trial!

30 Jul

Do you really know how to win before trial?

Lawyers may drag out a case (so they can make more money billing for their time), and many insist on going to trial (which costs even more money).

If you hold the winning cards (the law and facts favor your case) you can win before trial!

Let me explain. The full details you need to know are in my affordable step-by-step Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” course, but I can give you a few starting points to convince you of the value of my affordable course and why you should order today … if you don’t already have my popular course!

#1 … There is absolutely nothing in the way of evidence you can get into the record at trial that you cannot get into the record before trial, using your five (5) powerful evidence discovery tools, as more fully explained in my popular and affordable step-by-step 24-hour course.

There are no witnesses you cannot question under oath before trial.

There are no documents or things you cannot get into the record before trial.

There is nothing going to happen at trial that cannot be made to happen before trial.

If the facts are on your side, you can get them all into evidence before trial, using my Jurisdictionary methods.

#2 … There are absolutely no legal arguments you can make at trial that you cannot make before trial using the research and memorandum system my course explains.

If the law is on your side, you don’t have to wait to go to trial to make your legal arguments. You can and should make all your legal arguments before trial the way my popular self-help course explains.

You can quote and cite all the statutes, constitutional provisions, common law doctrine, and court rules that may apply to your case using the research and memorandum system my course explains to make your winning record.

#3 … There is absolutely nothing that can be done at a trial that cannot be resolved in your favor before trial, if you have a winning case (i.e., if the law and facts are on your side).

In a very real sense, the “trying” of your case begins at the filing of the very first pleading and continues through every phase of litigation.

Here are 4 common reasons cases go to trial and why you need my course whether you have a lawyer or not.

  1. They had a lazy lawyer who didn’t do the pre-trial work he could have done.
  2. They had a stupid lawyer who didn’t know how to do the pre-trial work hecould have done.
  3. They had a greedy lawyer who dragged out the case to the bitter end to take more money from his client.
  4. They didn’t have a lawyer, and they didn’t know what my popular Jurisdictionary course makes so easy-to-understand an average 8th grader can do it!

Here are a few of the dozens of reasons why you should do all you can possibly do to avoid going to trial:

  1. Trial is uncertain, especially with unpredictable juries or corrupt judges.
  2. Trial is a “think on your feet” exercise that keeps you on your toes, where pre-trial work is slow and steady and lets you work at your own pace.
  3. Trial exposes you to the dirtiest lawyer tricks in a way that failure to react quickly to put a stop to the high jinks of your opponent can be fatal.

If you have a winnable case, win before trial!

There are no questions you can ask at a trial that you cannot ask before trial using interrogatories, requests for admissions, depositions, and subpoenas as explained in my affordable course.

There are no documents or things you can bring to trial that you cannot get into the trial record before trial using requests for production, subpoenas, and depositions duce tecum as explained in my course.

There are no legal arguments you can make at trial that you cannot make more effectively and powerfully before trial using the legal research and memorandum system my course explains.

If you don’t win before trial, you didn’t do what you could have done earlier in the case when you still had lots of time to do it. Trial is crunch time! Not a good place to be, if you can avoid it by winning before trial using the Jurisdictionary “How to Win in Court” self-help course.

I know what it takes to win before trial.
