WHAT IS NEW JERESY DISCOVERY IN NEW JERSEY CASES?
Discovery is a period of fact finding, which occurs after your New Jersey lawsuit is filed or after your New Jersey answer is filed and before you have your New Jersey trial. During New Jersey discovery, New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants seek information about the New Jersey case. The information sought during discovery may include a wide range of information, from copies of New Jersey records to New Jersey witness statements. Unless otherwise limited by a New Jersey court order, New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants may obtain New Jersey discovery regarding any matter, not privileged, which is relevant to the subject matter involved in the pending action, whether it relates to the New Jersey claim or New Jersey defense of the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant seeking discovery or to the claim or defense of any other party, including the existence, description, nature, custody, condition and location of any books, documents, electronically stored information, or other tangible things and the identity and location of persons having knowledge of any discoverable matter. It is not ground for objection that the information sought will be inadmissible at the trial if the information sought appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence; nor is it ground for objection that the examining party has knowledge of the matters as to which discovery is sought. The methods of investigation used during discovery include New Jersey interrogatories, New Jersey request for production of documents, New Jersey notice to produce documents and New Jersey admissions which are also called New Jersey request for New Jersey admissions. To get a better understanding of the facts surrounding the case, New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants may serve New Jersey interrogatories, New Jersey request for production of documents, New Jersey notice to produce documents and New Jersey request for New Jersey admissions. These are forms of New Jersey written discovery, which require the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant served with them to answer in writing the New Jersey interrogatory questions, New Jersey admission questions and requests for documents. The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant that receives the written requests has a certain number of days to answer them. If a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant fails to answer the New Jersey requests in the time allotted, their New Jersey lawsuit or answer to the New Jersey lawsuit can be dismissed or suppressed or in the case of New Jersey admissions, the claims can be admitted conclusively against the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant that failed to answer the New Jersey requests.


WHAT IF I DON’T GET NEW JERSEY ANSWERS TO NEW JERSEY INTERROGATORIES, NEW JERSEY ANSWERS TO NEW JERSEY REQUESTS FOR PRODUCTION OF DOCUEMNTS OR NEW JERSEY ANSWERS TO A NOTICE TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS?
If you ignore New Jersey court interrogatories and you are the New Jersey defendant or a New Jersey plaintiff facing a New Jersey counterclaim, then the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant that serves them on you can ask to have any New Jersey answer that you file with the court “suppressed” or “stricken” or may ask the court to “compel” you or force you to provide New Jersey answers or face court penalties. If the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant requesting the In New Jersey court New Jersey answers files the proper New Jersey court papers with the court, this could eventually lead the requesting party to win their case, either by getting a money judgment in their favor. If you ignore New Jersey court interrogatories and you are the plaintiff or a defendant with a New Jersey counterclaim, then the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant that serves them on you can ask to have any complaint or New Jersey counterclaim that you file with the court “dismissed” or may ask the court to “compel” you or force you to provide New Jersey answers or face court penalties. If the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant requesting the In New Jersey court New Jersey answers files the proper New Jersey court papers with the court, this could eventually lead the requesting party to win their case, by getting a New Jersey lawsuit or New Jersey counterclaim forever dismissed.

It is your duty to follow the New Jersey court rules and use them to get complete responses to your New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents). Unless you take action to make sure you get complete responses to your New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents), you may go to your New Jersey trial unprepared and lose your New Jersey case! The New Jersey court rules include penalties for New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants failing to answer properly prepared and served New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents). Take advantage of the New Jersey court rules to get complete responses to your New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents). If a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant only gives you objections or incomplete New Jersey answers to your New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents), you can prepare and file papers to seek New Jersey penalties against the offending New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants! Many times, New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants win their New Jersey cases by refusing to be satisfied with unresponsive or incomplete responses to New Jersey interrogatories and New Jersey requests for documents (also called a New Jersey notice to produce documents)!

WHAT HAPPENS IF NEW JERSEY INTERROGATROY ANSWERS ARE INCOMPLETE?
If New Jersey interrogatory answers are incomplete, the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant, upon reasonable notice to other New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants and all persons affected thereby, may apply for a New Jersey court order compelling discovery. For example, The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant serving a New Jersey interrogatory question answered by a statement that it is improper may, within 20 days after being served with the New Jersey interrogatory answers, serve a New Jersey notice of motion to compel an answer to the question, and, if granted, the question shall be answered within such time as the New Jersey court directs. The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant serving a request for a copy of a paper which is not complied with, may, within 20 days after being served with the New Jersey interrogatory answers, serve a notice of motion directing compliance with the request or for other appropriate relief.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY DISCOVERY DISPUTE?
If a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant fails to timely or completely answer New Jersey interrogatories, New Jersey request for production of documents, New Jersey notice to produce documents and New Jersey admissions the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant that served the New Jersey discovery requests needs to quickly and timely take action to get the missing information or be unprepared for their New Jersey trial.

HELP WITH NEW JERSEY DISCOVERY DISPUTES
Is a New Jersey discovery deadline approaching in your New Jersey case and you don’t have New Jersey interrogatory New Jersey answers, responses to New Jersey document requests or New Jersey depositions?

Are you having difficulty getting complete New Jersey answers to New Jersey interrogatories and need a New Jersey discovery motion prepared?

Do you need more time to complete New Jersey depositions in your New Jersey case or to get New Jersey interrogatories answered in your New Jersey case and need a New Jersey motion to extend the discovery end date in your New Jersey case?

Are you unfamiliar with the New Jersey summary judgment standard or the New Jersey Court Rules about New Jersey motions for summary judgment?

Do you want to dismiss a New Jersey complaint or New Jersey counterclaim because a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant failed to give you New Jersey interrogatory New Jersey answers or a response to a New Jersey request for documents?

Is a New Jersey arbitration or New Jersey trial approaching and you want to get discovery responses or New Jersey depositions in your New Jersey case before it is too late?

Is a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant pressuring you for more specific New Jersey answers to New Jersey interrogatories in a New Jersey case and you just don’t have the time to go through the file and answer the New Jersey interrogatories?

Did your New Jersey complaint get dismissed for failing to answer New Jersey interrogatories or New Jersey counterclaim get dismissed for failing to answer New Jersey interrogatories in a New Jersey case and you need to reinstate the New Jersey complaint?

Did your New Jersey answer get suppressed or stricken for failing to answer New Jersey interrogatories in a New Jersey case and you need to reinstate the New Jersey answer?

Do you want to take a New Jersey deposition in your New Jersey case, need a New Jersey subpoena prepared in your New Jersey case or want to request records from a New Jersey business or New Jersey individual?

Keep in mind that the once New Jersey discovery is over, you may be forever barred from complaining that you never got discovery responses in your New Jersey case. Sitting and waiting is simply not the answer.

Also keep in mind that if a New Jersey complaint remains dismissed for too long or New Jersey counterclaim remains dismissed for too long, the New Jersey complaint dismissed or New Jersey counterclaim dismissed can be dismissed forever preventing you from recovering any damages or relief.

Further, if a New Jersey answer remains suppressed or stricken for too long, your New Jersey answer can be stricken or suppressed forever, which could lead to the entry of a New Jersey judgment against you.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey case 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 lawyer!

Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court 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 Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?
The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey 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 New Jersey cases. New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey case. Each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment. However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court 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 case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case:
• New Jersey Court fees often change
• New Jersey Court rules often change
• New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court 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 Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
• each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey 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 New Jersey case.
• a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court 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 New Jersey Court trial.
• it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court 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 Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants 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 New Jersey Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court 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 New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey case to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey case. The judge hearing your New Jersey case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

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