How to Win in Court
August 21, 2019

Whether you're a plaintiff or defendant, you must know what smart defendants do to dodge lawsuits.

If a defendant is served with a complaint, he may dodge the lawsuit by filing motions to avoid filing an Answer!

This is called the "flurry of motions".

Once a defendant files an Answer, he's locked in and misses this chance to dodge the lawsuit altogether.

Don't file an Answer if you can dodge the lawsuit with a "flurry of motions".

Inexperienced lawyers and pro se people make the mistake of filing an Answer to plaintiff's Complaint ... instead of using the flurry of motions.

  • Motion to Dismiss
  • Motion to Strike
  • Motion for More Definite Statement

Each of these motions postpones the necessity of filing an Answer to the Complaint ... and gains you valuable time and evidence-gathering opportunities!

In some cases it puts an end to the case. Period!

Use your Flurry of Motions.

How to Win in Court
August 16, 2019

 

Win Without Risking Trial

Do you know how to win before trial?

Lawyers drag out cases so they can bill for more time.

Many refuse to do things "the right way" (the way our "How to Win in Court" course teaches) so they can avoid trial. They make more money if they can take their clients' cases all-the-way to the bitter, knock-down, drag-out bitter end at trial.

Do you hold winning cards (law and facts)?

Then you can win before trial!

  1. There is no evidence you cannot get in before
  2. There are no witnesses you cannot question under oath before
  3. There are no documents or things you cannot get in before
  4. There are no legal arguments you cannot make before
  5. There is nothing going to happen at trial that cannot be made to happen before

The "trying" of your case with the first pleading and continues with discovery and motions before trial.

Common reasons cases go to trial are:

  1. Lazy lawyer who didn't do the pre-trial work he could have done.
  2. Stupid lawyer who didn't know how to do the pre-trial work he could have done.
  3. Greedy lawyer who didn't want to do the pre-trial work he could have done.
  4. No lawyer and no idea how to do the pre-trial work that could have been done.

Don't wait for trial to win!

A few reasons why are:

  1. Trial is uncertain, especially with unpredictable juries and corrupt judges.
  2. Trial is "think on your feet" with opponent trying to throw you off with objections.
  3. Trial is a nasty battle against lawyers' willing to cheat if they can.
  4. Trial is a last bite at the apple, with no take backs and no retreats.

 

Win before trial!

Know What the Law Actually Says and Means!

One of the biggest mistakes is mis-reading the law.

* Constitutions
* Rules
* Statutes
* Codes
* Court Rulings
* Other Legal Documents

If you don't know what a law actually says, you'll have a hard time getting a judge to agree with you!

Understanding the "rules of language interpretation" is essential ... not only to winning lawsuits but to obtain success in other pursuits of life as well.

Legal language must be interpreted according to the "rules of language interpretation".

Understanding the "rules of language interpretation" is vital to winning your case.

You DO want to win, don't you?

Too many otherwise clever people "assume" they know what a law says, when the only opinion that counts in court is what appellate justices say the law says.

Appellate justices apply the "rules of language interpretation".

You must also!

Why Pro Se Litigants Have a Hard Time.

Whether it's the high cost of lawyers' fees or growing distrust of lawyers, there is a mounting trend these days for more people to fight without a lawyer.

Reliable surveys report 4 out of 5 cannot afford a lawyer.

Most people don't trust lawyers.

Yet ½ of all court proceedings involve at least one pro se party.

Too many pro se people lose ... needlessly!

Ever wonder why you were never taught anything about court procedure or the rules of evidence in your tax-supported schools?

Who benefits from your legal ignorance?

You guessed it.

Lawyers!

... Especially Your Own!

Do you know what it takes to win?

If not, you may choose to hire a lawyer to go to court for you.

But do you know what your lawyer should be doing to win?

Are you willing to pay a lawyer but not know what should be done to win?

Probably not.

If you decide to hire a lawyer, you will save thousands of dollars in lawyer fees by doing some work yourself and cut down on the lawyer's billable hours!

People who hire a lawyer without knowing "what must be done to win" often end up bankrupt ... then lose anyway!

Many lawyers take all the money they can dig out of their clients' pockets, and when their clients can no longer pay, they bail out before going to trial, leaving their clients holding the proverbial bag!

Too many innocent people lose this way and never know why!

There's a reason why lawyer jokes proliferate! Think about it BEFORE you hire one! Protect yourself! Know what need to be done to win your case!

If you must hire a lawyer:

  • Know what the lawyer should do to win.
  • Don't pay for incompetence.
  • Don't put up with laziness.
  • Don't let your lawyer cheat you!
  • Demand effective legal service!

 

If you can't afford a lawyer:

  • Learn what it takes to win!
  • Force the court to protect your rights.
  • Draft proper pleadings.
  • Get your evidence into the record.
  • Make effective courtroom objections.
  • Move the court to get your justice!

Find the Law that Controls the Judge!

You cannot win without controlling judges.

You cannot control judges unless you research and cite controlling "legal authority" for every point you seek to make on the court's record!

We show you how in our "How to Win in Court" course.

The judge is not the authority!

Learn how to make it crystal clear on the court's record that the judge will be reversed on appeal if he rules against you.

Otherwise, a judge is free to ignore everything you say and rule any way he pleases in spite of what the law and facts may prove to the contrary ... because he knows he will not be reversed on appeal.

The appeal process will not give you another bite at the proverbial apple. Either you make your points with the trial judge by researching and properly citing controlling "legal authority", or you run the risk of losing your case and being stuck with the judge's unjust decision forever!

Controlling judges wins lawsuits!

The only thing that counts is how the controlling appellate courts read and interpret the law, and what they say those things mean in regard to the facts of your case.

The other side will cite legal authorities for their case.

You must do the same ... if you want to win.

Learn how to use on-line legal research and how to cite case-winning legal authority with the affordable, official, step-by-step 3 day Jurisdictionary self-help course!

What is good legal writing?

  • Impress the judge?
  • Confuse the opponent?
  • Or ... win your case?

 

Your goal is: make a winning record!

Too many pro se litigants miss this point.

Any words not making a winning record must go!

Learn to write with punch, power, and persuasive effect.

Legal writing is NOT story-telling!

Any fact not "relevant" and any law not "controlling" must be eliminated.

The purpose for every word must be to make your winning record.

Say what needs to be said and stop!

Learn what needs to be said and what shouldn't be.

Our "How to Win in Court" course shows you what to say and what to leave un-said.

YOU DARE NOT TRUST LAWYERS!

If you're like most people, you don't.

I don't either, and I've been one since 1987!

Guard against the shady ethics of your opponent's lawyer.

Keep a close watch on your own lawyer, too!

Every lawyer joke should be a warning!

Question: What's 5,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
Answer: A good start!

There are more jokes about lawyers than all other professions put together.

Know how to protect yourself !

Your opponent's lawyer will play every dirty trick he can.
Count on it.
Plan for it.
Be prepared.
PROTECT YOURSELF!

But, how?

Know how to protect yourself!

Too many pro se litigants mis-read the law.
