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’re 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:


  • draft and file court papers
  • get help from an attorney or legal coach
  • obtain and prepare your evidence, including social media postings
  • handle depositions
  • line up, prepare, and examine witnesses
  • present an opening statement
  • make and respond to objections
  • pick a jury if necessary, and
  • deal with the court clerk and judge


Whether you’re 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.


The new edition includes information and tips on participating in a court hearing via Zoom.
