WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY “PRO SE PARTY” OR A “PRO SE PLAINTIFF OR ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE DEFENDANT” IN AN ATLANTIC COUNTY LAWSUIT?
If you are not represented by a New Jersey lawyer in an Atlantic County pro se case, you are called a New Jersey “pro se plaintiff or Atlantic County pro se defendant” or a New Jersey “pro se party”.  In Atlantic County lawsuits, Atlantic County pro se plaintiff or Atlantic County pro se defendant file their own paperwork with the Atlantic County and appear for themselves in Atlantic County court instead of having a New Jersey lawyer to represent them.  However, Atlantic County Pro Se legal help may be an affordable way to get professional legal help without the high prices of full representation by a law firm.  The Law Office Of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County pro se plaintiff help and Atlantic County pro se defendant help.  


WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PARTIES SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
For an Atlantic County pro se plaintiff or Atlantic County pro se defendant, handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!!   An Atlantic County pro se plaintiff or Atlantic County pro se defendant should do things right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey 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 case.  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 Atlantic County as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.   Let an experienced New Jersey lawyer help you with your New Jersey Case by providing Atlantic County Pro Se legal help.  The Law Office of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County Pro Se complaint help, Atlantic County Pro Se answer help, Atlantic County Pro Se motion help, Atlantic County pro se discovery help, Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help and Atlantic County pro se trial help.  Not all New Jersey Cases require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help.  To receive a no cost phone consultation about Atlantic County Pro Se legal help, call Mr. DePetris at 609-714-2020 or send an email to Mr. DePetris.  Mr. DePetris has experience helping many Atlantic County pro se plaintiffs and Atlantic County pro se defendants to handle their own Atlantic County pro se cases.


CLIENTS WITH LIMITED BUDGETS 
By using Atlantic County Pro Se legal help, let an experienced New Jersey lawyer prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork properly for reasonable fees.  In many situations, the Law Office of Paul DePetris offers alternatives to handling New Jersey Court and New Jersey Small Claims Court cases for an hourly fee, such as by offering fixed fees or flat fees to prepare documents for you or to give you advice to help you handle your claim by yourself.  Such flexible methods may allow you to keep the amount legal fees you spend on your case to a fixed sum, while providing you the Atlantic County Pro Se legal help you need to handle your case.  For a no cost phone consultation about Atlantic County Pro Se legal help, call Mr. DePetris at 609-714-2020 or write an email to Mr. DePetris. 




NEW JERSEY PRO SE REPRESENTATION - CAN I HANDLE AN ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se parties can and do successfully handle Atlantic County pro se cases, from filing the first Atlantic County paperwork to the collection of an Atlantic County judgment.  However, many other New Jersey pro se parties also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of an Atlantic County money judgment against them.  The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent New Jersey lawyer licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the Atlantic County pro se case.  The Law Office Of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County pro se plaintiff help and Atlantic County pro se defendant help.  The following are reasons why New Jersey pro se parties should use a New Jersey lawyer to handle part or all of their Atlantic County pro se case:
Atlantic County fees often change
Atlantic County rules often change
Atlantic County 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
Atlantic County court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
each Atlantic County pro se case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
it is very common for New Jersey pro se parties to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey complaints that result in the New Jersey complaints or answers to New Jersey complaints being rejected by the Atlantic County or being dismissed by the Atlantic County after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.   
it is not uncommon for New Jersey judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the Atlantic County pro se case.  
a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their Speciall Civil case out of court or limiting what they can present at the Atlantic County 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 the Atlantic County trial.  
it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a New Jersey pro se party to use or refer to documents or items at the Atlantic County trial that the person themselves never prepared.  Often New Jersey pro se parties stumble into Atlantic County 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 judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.  
without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the Atlantic County.  Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the Atlantic County 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 the Atlantic County expecting the New Jersey judge hearing your Atlantic County pro se case to explain court rules, evidence rules, Atlantic County procedure or the details of the law that applies to your Atlantic County pro se case.  The New Jersey judge hearing your Atlantic County pro se case is not permitted to give you legal advice.


It is important to remember that even if you have Atlantic County pro se plaintiff help or Atlantic County pro se defendant help from a New Jersey lawyer, you could lose your Atlantic County pro se case.  Hiring a New Jersey lawyer to handle part or all of your Atlantic County pro se case does not guarantee your success.  However, Atlantic County Pro Se legal help may be an affordable way to get Atlantic County pro se defendant help without the high prices of full representation by a law firm.  Atlantic County Pro Se legal help may provide what is needed to win your Atlantic County pro se case or to avoid certain mistakes.  Let an experienced New Jersey lawyer give as much or as little Atlantic County pro se plaintiff help or Atlantic County pro se defendant help as you need.  


CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY 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 Atlantic County as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law. 


CAN I RELY ON ATLANTIC COUNTY FORMS PROVIDED BY THE ATLANTIC COUNTY COURT?
The Atlantic County usually provides certain types of New Jersey legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful.  However, beware relying on Atlantic County forms provided by the Atlantic County court – the New Jersey forms are often deceptively simple, while Atlantic County pro se cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be.   There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling Atlantic County pro se 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 an Atlantic County pro se case.  Each Atlantic County pro se case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.   Even if you do not have the money to hire a law firm to represent you fully in a case, Atlantic County Pro Se legal help is better than trying to handle the case without professional legal advice and it can be quite affordable.  Through Atlantic County Pro Se legal help, you can have a New Jersey attorney prepare your Atlantic County paperwork for you.  


ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE PLAINTIFF HELP AND ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE DEFENDANT HELP
The Law Office Of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County pro se plaintiff help and Atlantic County pro se defendant help.  Don’t have money to hire a New Jersey lawyer to handle your Atlantic County pro se case or New Jersey Small Claims case but still need help with your Atlantic County pro se case?   The Law Office of Paul DePetris offers Atlantic County pro se help in Atlantic County lawsuits.  In many situations, the Law Office of Paul DePetris offers alternatives to handling Atlantic County cases for an hourly fee, such as by offering flat fees.    Such flexible methods may allow you to keep the amount New Jersey legal fees you spend on your New Jersey case to a fixed sum, while providing you the help you need to handle your New Jersey case.  For example, when providing Atlantic County Pro Se legal help the Law Office of Paul DePetris prepares the following New Jersey documents for New Jersey pro se parties in New Jersey lawsuits:


New Jersey summons 
New Jersey complaints
New Jersey answers
New Jersey counterclaims
New Jersey third party complaints

ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE COMPLAINT HELP
Atlantic County pro se complaint help may be a good way to get your complaint prepared properly the first time.   Most pro se parties do a very bad job of writing up a lawsuit, using court forms that don’t answer questions or copying forms from the internet that are not designed for their case.   However, the complaint is the start of the case – if written incorrectly (as is often the case), you may fail to include important information or include too much information and thereby help your opponent.  Why bother to pay a court filing fee if you are simply going to write up the lawsuit wrong and waste time and money?  If you want to sue a person or business in Atlantic County and you need help preparing Atlantic County summonses and Atlantic County complaints, the Law Office of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County Pro Se complaint help, preparing your Atlantic County paperwork for you for a one time flat fee.   Through New Jersey pro se plaintiff help, after you pay the fee and submit the necessary information to the Firm, the Atlantic County paperwork shall be typed up and sent to you for you to file.  Don’t take a chance getting your Atlantic County papers rejected by the Atlantic County court for drafting errors and don’t rely upon legal advice from anyone other than a New Jersey lawyer licensed to practice law in New Jersey!   To get a quote for Atlantic County pro se complaint help, call Paul DePetris at 609-714-2020 or email him.  


ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE ANSWER HELP
Atlantic County pro se answer help can be an affordable way to get your answer to a lawsuit prepared right the first time and may avoid headaches later.   Have you been sued in Atlantic County and you need to file an Atlantic County answer to a complaint?   Don’t ignore an Atlantic County Lawsuit.  Failure to file an Atlantic County answer in an Atlantic County pro se case could lead to the entry of an Atlantic County money judgment against you followed by the freezing of your bank account, deduction of your wages or the sale of your personal possessions!    Atlantic County pro se answer help may be a good way to get your answer prepared in a way that complies with the court rules without offering information that may compromise your defense of the case.   Most pro se parties do a very bad job of writing up answers, failing to properly admit or deny allegations and failing to properly include all defenses to a lawsuit.   Don’t think that you will be protected by using court forms that don’t answer questions or copying forms from the internet that are not designed for your case.   The answer is the start of the defense – if written incorrectly (as is often the case), you may fail to include important information or include too much information and thereby help your opponent.  Why bother to pay a court filing fee for the answer if you are simply going to write up the answer wrong and waste time and money?  Atlantic County pro se answer help can be an effective way to get the answer written properly and inexpensively.  If you need help preparing answers, counterclaims or third party complaints in Atlantic County, the Law Office of Paul DePetris will prepare your Atlantic County paperwork for you for a one time flat fee.   Through Atlantic County pro se answer help, after you pay the fee and submit the necessary information to the Firm, the Atlantic County paperwork shall be typed up and sent to you for you to file.  Don’t take a chance getting your Atlantic County papers rejected by the Atlantic County court for drafting errors and don’t rely upon legal advice from anyone other than a New Jersey lawyer licensed to practice law in New Jersey!   To get a quote for Atlantic County pro se answer help, call Paul DePetris at 609-714-2020 or email him.


ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE DISCOVERY HELP 
Do you think that all you have to do in a case is file a complaint or answer and wait for the trial to be scheduled?   That isn’t always how it works in court and if you never do any discovery, you may never know your opponent’s version of the case until trial, when it may be too late to prepare to counter their claims.  Atlantic County pro se discovery help may be a good way to prepare for your trial.   Why go to trial without knowing as much as possible about your opponent’s version of the dispute?  Many New Jersey pro se litigants stumble in to court on their trial date complaining they need proof from their opponent only to be told that they failed to properly ask for the information in advance of trial and therefore don’t deserve it at trial.   Need Atlantic County pro se discovery help preparing interrogatories or document requests?   Let an experienced attorney provide you with Atlantic County pro se discovery help.   Don’t just wait for trial and go unprepared to your trial!   Prepare your case before trial by serving interrogatories and requests for documents.    Atlantic County pro se discovery help is a good way to get interrogatories or requests for documents or requests for admissions out the door and to make sure they are properly prepared.  Why take chances with your case?  Experienced Atlantic County pro se discovery help may be available at inexpensive prices.


ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE INTERROGATORY HELP 
Answering interrogatories can be very difficult – one slip up could cost you your case!  Were you served with interrogatories or document requests?   Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help can be an affordable and effective way to get your interrogatories answered right.   Don’t ignore interrogatories and don’t try to answer interrogatories yourself.   Consider experienced Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help.  If you do so, you might make a crucial mistake, admitting facts that might prove you should lose your case.   Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help may be an inexpensive way to make sure that you answer the interrogatories correctly and thoroughly.   Also, if you do a terrible job answering the interrogatories, you may face a motion to compel more specific answers.  Don’t make more work for yourself – get Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help.   Don’t ignore interrogatories or requests for documents.   Failure to answer interrogatories may lead to the dismissal of your complaint or suppression of your answer.   Failing to answer admissions could mean that the facts alleged in the admissions are admitted against you forever, making it harder for you to win your case!   Need Law Division interrogatory answer help?   After you pay the fee and submit the necessary information to the Firm, the answers or document response shall be typed up and sent to you for you to send out to your opponent.   Don’t take a chance with a motion to dismiss the complaint or to suppress the answer and don’t rely upon legal advice from anyone other than an experienced Atlantic County lawyer!   Atlantic County pro se discovery help can be an inexpensive and effective way to meet your New Jersey discovery deadlines.  Mr. DePetris frequently offers one time flat fees for New Jersey pro se parties. Atlantic County pro se interrogatory help will allow you to have a lawyer write your interrogatories, notice to produce, request for admissions, deposition notices, answers to interrogatories, answers to notice to produce or answers to admissions.


ATLANTIC COUNTY PRO SE MOTION HELP 
Many pro se litigants fail to prepare their motions or oppositions to motions and their motion is denied or their opponent’s motion is granted against the pro se litigant!   Do you need Atlantic County pro se motion help?   Is a trial date or discovery deadline approaching in your court case and you don’t have answers to interrogatories or responses to document requests or you want to take depositions in your case?    Did you get interrogatory answers that refuse to answer your questions or that are only incomplete?   Do you need Atlantic County pro se motion help to make a motion to dismiss a complaint for failure to interrogatories, to suppress an answer for failure to answer interrogatories or for more specific interrogatory answers?  Do you need more time to complete discovery before your trial occurs?   Are you unfamiliar with Atlantic County discovery rules?  Do you want to dismiss a complaint or counterclaim because a party failed to give you answers to interrogatories?  Did your New Jersey complaint get dismissed for failing to answer interrogatories or did your answer get suppressed for failing to answer interrogatories and you need Atlantic County pro se motion help to prepare a motion to reinstate the complaint or answer?   Do you want to request records from a New Jersey business or New Jersey individual who is not a party to your court case?  Keep in mind that the once discovery is over, you may be forever barred from complaining that you never got discovery responses in your case.  Sitting and waiting is simply not the answer.  Atlantic County pro se motion help could be a good way to get the assistance you need by having a motion prepared to force your opponent to answer interrogatories or document requests in a meaningful way.  Also keep in mind that if a complaint remains dismissed for too long or counterclaim remains dismissed for too long or an answer suppressed for too long, if your opponent makes a motion,. the complaint or counterclaim could be dismissed forever preventing you from recovering any damages or relief and the answer could be suppressed forever and a judgment entered against you.  Did you get served with a motion to dismiss or summary judgment motion?  Don’t ignore those motions and be careful trying to answer them yourself!  Even if you think you can’t afford full representation you may be able to afford Atlantic County pro se motion help.  Are you having difficulty finding the time to write an answer to a motion to dismiss or an answer to a summary judgment motion?    Do you want to try to avoid a trial by filing a summary judgment motion or a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim?  Are you unfamiliar with motion rules?  Making or answering a motion cannot be done any way you want and usually a letter will not be enough to satisfy the court.   Appeals are very expensive and complex and once you lose before an appeal, it is usually much harder to win the same issue the second time on an appeal.   Experienced Atlantic County pro se motion help may be the answer.  Atlantic County pro se motion help is a good way to make certain that your motion or motion answer includes everything necessary to present your facts and arguments to the court properly.  Flat fees are often available for Atlantic County pro se motion help.  Motions must be responded to in a specific time frame or the motion may be granted by the court.   Don’t wait until it is too late to take action!  Get Atlantic County pro se motion help to help you make or answer a motion the right way the first time.  


HAVE A NEW JERSEY TRIAL SCHEDULED AND NEED HELP PREPARING FOR IT?
Are you in need of Atlantic County pro se trial help?   The Law Office of Paul DePetris provides Atlantic County pro se trial help.   On the date your New Jersey case is scheduled for trial, you must be fully prepared to try the case.   There are many reasons you should avoid handling your trial without Atlantic County pro se trial help, such as the following:
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
court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
each case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges

Atlantic County pro se trial help may provide the edge that you need to win your case or to avoid certain mistakes.  Winning a case is not simply a matter of preparing and filing a complaint or answer and showing up at court.  Don’t wait until the day or week before trial to prepare for it!    Far in advance of your trial, documents have to be requested collected and witnesses subpoenaed.   It is not uncommon for a person to show up at a trial asking for an adjournment because they are not ready to try their case, with the judge refusing to grant the request!   Pro se plaintiffs and pro se defendants often appear at a trial unprepared only to learn the hard way that, very often, the key to winning a trial is careful preparation.  If you have a trial scheduled, consider using Atlantic County pro se trial help to prepare your Atlantic County trial papers, such as:
Trial Subpoenas
Opening Statements
Direct Examination Questions
Cross Examination Questions
Trial Briefs
Closing Statements
Jury Trial Submissions – Voir Dire Questions, Statements Of The Case, Jury Interrogatories, Jury Charges, New Jersey Court Trial Briefs And Motions In Limine
