Pro Se Power Tip TM #4: Discovery - Trial Transcript Overcoming Dirty Tricks

One of the FAVORITE DIRTY TRICKS is to waste court time and enlarging the trial and  hearing transcript by either the prosecution or plaintiff because they know you will have to pay for a transcript on appeal that typically costs up to $5.00 per page. A half hour case can result in a $500.00 written transcript. This discourages appeals. How do you over come it??

Simply and almost free you can get a copy of the recording and buy a tape player for 30.00. Now you have the orginal hearing and all you have to do is reference your case quotations by the minuet and second in your briefs!!

Typically you would cite it in the brief  "the defendant stated she was not home" (T 34:12)  where that was stated at minuet 34 and 12 seconds into to the hearing.

Prepare every case as if you are going to appeal!! Learn to get all your legal positions and evidence into the record. It may be your only chance to do so.

    Learn to MAKE THE LEGAL RECORD - and Understand its Importance!!

Pro Se Power Tip TM #5: Pre-Trial and Discovery

Always start your DISCOVERY IMMEDIATELY. This lets  the opposing side  know you are serious. Under the federal rules you may do so even before the case is filed or as soon as complaint is served and filed. Waste no time at all when it comes to deposing witnesses and the opposing party.

How and where to Depose Witnesses

Always start your DISCOVERY IMMEDIATELY. Contact a court reporter service or depostion service. They will make a legal record of you deposing the defendant you are suing and your witnesses. The cost is minimal (paid by the hour) but the effect is devastating and terrifying to the defendant you are deposing.  Bring a complete questioning plan with you.

Understand making the "legal record" at every level of court filings and hearings. This simply means getting into evidence by court recorder and filing, thus legally establishing evidence for inclusion in any future legal action  such as an appeal. Always conduct your case as if you plan an appeal by entering and preserving the evidence. Trials are about evidence.

Pro Se Power Tip TM   #14:  Notice of Appeals

 Appeals are made on matters of law and a notice must be made to all parties immediately. The "record" of the lower court by way of transcript must be ordered. If the court is in error an appeal must state where the error occurred based upon the court transcript. No new evidence can be brought into the case if not made part of the "record" in the initial trial unless it is new evidence undiscoverable at the time before the original trial unless the court permits it.

Pro Se Power Tip TM  #15: The APPEAL

Any good lawyer will tell you to study the appeals process first since it covers all the things that must be done on the trial level in detail such as making the "record"  See the APPEALS CD collection. Appeals are simple filings as long as you undestand the standard of review and what is required.  People represnting themselves are given some consideration and not held to the standard as an court attorney but they must always comply wil any "SHALL" requiremnt of the law. Failing to comply with any "shall" requiremnt may result in a dismissal of your case.

Pro Se Power Tip TM  #16: When MUST you have an ATTORNEY?

Although most matters the average person encounters in the law are motor vehicle, simple disputes or matters that can be handled by reaching an understanding with another party can often be handled by perons themselves under no circumstances should you do the following:

Represent yourself in any criminal charge.

When there are large amounts of money involved.

Any matter that may result in any great loss or consequence.

If you have any question you should consult with an attorney for an hour or so th answer your question as to what  your resulting outcome could be. Do not be foolish! Most attorneys  (the better ones) will give you a free initial consultation.

Pro Se Power Tip TM #17:  Kowledge of Law is the AMMUNITION - Here are the FIREARMS and PRACTICE

 
  1. Buy a SCANNER - Scan every document, evidence, everything you create and especially the filings and save them as one file with signature so you can instantly print out multiple copies as needed.
  2. Buy a DUPLEXER for your printer so you can print on both sides of the paper automatically.
  3. Name each file by date and procedure name.
  4. Scan and make copies of everything that is sent  to or served upon you.
  5. When making copies you can print out 2 pages on one side (booklet setting) you you can use less paper - you can actually put 2 pages on each single sheet and have 4 pages on one sheet!!
  6. Keep backups.
  7. Stay organized. Keep a calender.
  8. The organizing folders lawyers use are called "WALLETS" - get them at Staples, OfficeMax or from a law office supply store on the web. They also have litigation forms and kits.
  9. Be careful of the court set deadlines - they trick you with "thereof", "hereof" and "herefrom" etc.
  10. Learn to count days - Weekends and holidays are counted.
  11. You can motion for an extension if you have a good reason but do not wait until the last day - give at least a week's notice.
