Understand this ... AND WINNING WILL BE EASY!Every case is won or lost on only two (2) things!
You don't need to know "every law" that was ever written -
you just need to know "the law of the case".
Consider the fellow piling things in the balance shown here. Imagine he is "building his case". He doesn't have a great number of things on his side. He just has a wee bit more than the other side, and that's all it takes to win!
My answer is simple!
You don't need to know everything lawyers know!You only need to know
(1) the law of your case and
(2) how to force the court to admit your evidence and enter the orders you seek.
Sound simple? That's because IT IS SIMPLE!My Nephew Bryan came to visit this weekend. He's on his way to law school in August. He asked, "How can a pro se litigant ever hope to win against a law school graduate?"
I gave him the same answer.
Yet, what I tell you today IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE!
To win, you don't really need to know much at all!
Here's an example dear to the hearts of many of you. A bank brings a foreclosure action. What is the law of the case? There are really only a few laws that control the outcome? And, you certainly don't need to go to law school to learn all the law there is to know about notes and mortgages.
Once you're able to argue what the law of the case is, the rest is simply a matter of convincing the court that:
You get to argue
But, you don't need to know all that I know to win! You don't need to know probate law to win a foreclosure, nor do you need to know torts, taxes, or even contract law (beyond that part of it that applies to promissory notes and mortgages)!
When I went to law school back in the early 80's, I had to learn the law about property, contract, torts, evidence, constitutions, crimes, taxes, probate, guardianship, family law, and much, much, much more.
YOU don't need to know all I know to win!
If you have a lawyer, will your lawyer do everything that must be done to win? Will your lawyer fight for you, even when it means making the judge angry? Will your lawyer spend time for you, when you cannot afford to pay for every hour that's needed to win? If you cannot pay your lawyer for all the hours needed to get evidence, prepare for hearings, research the law, draft effective motions, etcetera, who is going to get the job done?
Will your lawyer even tell you what could have been done, what should have been done ... once you lose?
Where does this leave YOU?
Legal malpractice and courtroom corruption are on the rise these days, yet most people have no idea how to fight back and protect themselves. Most people have no idea what it takes to win in court ... or how easy it is once you learn how!
When a judge lets a lawyer on the other side get away with smoke-and-mirrors games, YOU LOSE!
Know what it takes to win in court!
