~~~~~~Tips and Topics from Jurisdictionary~~~~~

Since 1997, when Jurisdictionary began showing people "How to Win in Court", we've received tens of thousands of emails requesting help ... and most of them from people who would have lost but for our help.
  • ScalesThe problem is "assuming" what it takes to win just gets folks into courtroom trouble!
It's certainly reasonable to assume, if the facts and law are on your side, that you should win in court!
The reality is, however: That's "Just Not True!
Facts and Law are not enough to win!
  • You must PROVE your winning case!
People have a hard time with this concept.
It does seem reasonable, if one knows the facts and knows the law that the court should rule in your favor.
But! That's not how our courts work!
In an "adversarial system" like ours, both sides compete to see which can pile the most "admissible evidence" into the court's official record. The one with the greater weight of "admissible evidence" wins.
  • Notice "admissible evidence" is not "FACTS".
A fact may be a fact, a certain, undeniable fact, and yet not be admissible evidence!
To be admissible, a fact must be:
  • relevant,
  • reliable,
  • competent,
  • not privileged, and
  • in compliance with other rules, etc.
To imagine one can march into court with "facts" and get justice, demanding, "The law is on my side," is to imagine something that simply is not true!
  • The PROOF is in the PROVING!
And, proving can only be done by "admissible evidence".
Too many good people lose simply because they do not yet know what is "admissible" and what is not!

For example, The Federal Rules of Evidence that control every federal case (civil and criminal) throughout the land, are printed in the Thomson-West edition of the Rules of Court on only 13 pages! Believe it or not.

That's 13 pages between you and success or defeat!
It isn't difficult, but you must know HOW TO USE THE RULES and what the rules mean by relevant, reliable, competent, privileged, etc
