"You don't need a lawyer to win in small claims court -- you need to know how to prepare and present your own case. Smart preparation for your day in court can make the difference between receiving a check and writing one. Everybody's Guide to Small Claims Court provides the information, tips, and strategies you need to sue someone successfully or put up a wining defense in any state. Find out how to: file and serve papers, mediate an out-of-court settlement, prepare evidence to support your case, decide how much to sue for, line up persuasive witnesses, present a winning case, and collect money when you win. The 17th edition includes the latest procedures for small claim courts in every state. You'll also find sample letters, legal forms, and a statute of limitations chart that will help you determine when you must file your case." -- Back cover.
