WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY “PRO SE PARTY” OR A “PRO SE PLAINTIFF OR NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANT” IN A NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION LAWSUIT?
If you are not represented by a New Jersey lawyer in a New Jersey Law Division case, you are called a New Jersey “pro se plaintiff or New Jersey pro se defendant” or a New Jersey “pro se party”. In New Jersey Law Division lawsuits, New Jersey pro se plaintiff or New Jersey pro se defendant file their own paperwork with the New Jersey Law Division and appear for themselves in New Jersey Law Division court instead of having a New Jersey lawyer to represent them.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PARTIES SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
For a New Jersey pro se plaintiff or New Jersey pro se defendant, handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! A New Jersey pro se plaintiff or New Jersey 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 New Jersey Law Division as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law. Let an experienced New Jersey lawyer help you with your New Jersey Case. Not all New Jersey Cases require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help. To receive a no cost phone consultation about what an experienced New Jersey lawyer might be able to do for you, call Mr. DePetris at 609-714-2020 or send an email to Mr. DePetris. Mr. DePetris has experience helping many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to handle their own New Jersey Law Division cases and New Jersey Special Civil cases.

PRO SE NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION BUSINESS REPRESENTATION -- WHAT HAPPENS IF THE NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION LAWSUIT INVOLVES A CORPORATION, PARTNERSHIP OR LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY?
The officers of corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and the like cannot generally appear New Jersey Law Division in cases involving disputes exceeding $3,000 since the corporation, partnership or limited liability company must usually be represented by a New Jersey lawyer in New Jersey Law Division courts. There may be some exceptions to this rule, such as where the New Jersey Law Division case involves a summary action for possession of premises.

NEW JERSEY PRO SE REPRESENTATION - CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se parties can and do successfully handle New Jersey Law Division cases, from filing the first New Jersey Law Division paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Law Division 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 a New Jersey Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division case. The following are reasons why New Jersey pro se parties should use a New Jersey lawyer to handle part or all of their New Jersey Law Division case:
• New Jersey Law Division fees often change
• New Jersey Law Division rules often change
• New Jersey Law Division 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 Law Division court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
• each New Jersey Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division or being dismissed by the New Jersey Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division 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 Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey pro se parties stumble into New Jersey Law Division 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 New Jersey Law Division. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Law Division 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 Law Division expecting the New Jersey judge hearing your New Jersey Law Division case to explain court rules, evidence rules, New Jersey Law Division procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey Law Division case. The New Jersey judge hearing your New Jersey Law Division case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have a New Jersey lawyer, you could lose your New Jersey Law Division case. Hiring a New Jersey lawyer to handle part or all of your New Jersey Law Division case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey Law Division case or to avoid certain mistakes. Let an experienced New Jersey lawyer give as much or as little help that you need for your New Jersey Law Division case or New Jersey Special Civil case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SMALL CLAIMS COURT PERSONNEL OR NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?

There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey Law Division 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 Law Division case.

If you can afford a competent New Jersey trial attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Law Division paperwork for you.
