CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY APPELLATE COURT CASE MYSELF?
New Jersey appeals are some of the most complex matters heard in New Jersey Courts and the failure to file the New Jersey Court Rules governing New Jersey Appeals could result in your New Jersey Appeal being dismissed or your being fined by the New Jersey Appellate Court. While some New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants and law firms can and do successfully handle New Jersey Appeals, many other attorneys and non-attorneys make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their cases or that result in the entry of fines against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a New Jersey appeals lawyer to handle part or all of the case. The following are reasons to use an experienced New Jersey appeals attorney to handle part or all of your case:
• New Jersey Appellate Court rules change.
• New Jersey Appellate Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.
• New Jersey Appellate Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court.
• Each New Jersey Appeal has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• It is very common for New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Appellate papers that result in the complaints or answers to complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Appeal Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Appeal Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the case.
• a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their case out of court or limiting what they can present at trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at trial.
• Without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Appeals Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• You cannot show up at a New Jersey Appeals Court expecting the judge hearing your case to explain court rules, evidence rules, court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your case. The judge hearing your case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have a New Jersey appeals attorney, you could lose your case. Hiring a New Jersey appeals attorney to handle part or all of your case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your case or to avoid certain mistakes.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PARTIES SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey appeal wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey appeals lawyer!
Many New Jersey pro se parties make the mistake of not consulting a New Jersey lawyer before filing New Jersey papers only to later learn that the New Jersey pro se parties made serious mistakes that could cause them to lose their New Jersey appeal. New Jersey employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey employees are not trained attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey appeals court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law. Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey appeal. Not all New Jersey appeals require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help. To receive a no cost phone consultation about what the Law Office of Paul DePetris might be able to do for you, call Mr. DePetris at 609-714-2020 or send an email to Mr. DePetris.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY APPEALS COURT PERSONNEL OR NEW JERSEY APPEALS COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey employees are not trained attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey appeals court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY APPEAL FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY APPEAL COURT?
The New Jersey appeal usually provides certain types of New Jersey legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey appeal forms provided by the New Jersey appeal court – the New Jersey forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey appeal cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for New Jersey lawyer who has experience handling New Jersey appeal cases. New Jersey forms don’t talk and New Jersey forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey appeal case. Each New Jersey appeal case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey trial attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey appeal paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY APPEAL MYSELF?
Many New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey appeals, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey judgment. However, many other New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey appeals or that result in the entry of a New Jersey money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey appeal.

• it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often parties stumble into New Jersey with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
