NEW JERSEY TRIAL ATTORNEY AVAILABLE TO TRY YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL
OR HELP YOU TRY YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL

IF YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL IS SCHEDULED, DON’T GO TO COURT UNREPRESENTED!
On the day that your New Jersey case is scheduled for your New Jersey trial, unless there is an adjournment or the New Jersey Law Division granted a New Jersey motion dismissing the New Jersey case or entering judgment on the entire New Jersey case in favor of one or more New Jersey Parties, whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, you must appear at New Jersey Law Division in the proper New Jersey Law Division courtroom. 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 New Jersey Trial without the help of a competent licensed New Jersey attorney, such as the following:

• New Jersey 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 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 people 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 or being dismissed by the New Jersey after filing and before or after the New Jersey 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 parties, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey 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 trial.
• it is very common for New Jersey Law Divisions 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 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 New Jersey Part. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey 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 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.

DON’T EXPECT NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION PERSONNEL TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO!!!
New Jersey Law Division personnel are generally not allowed to give plaintiffs and defendants legal advice. New Jersey Law Division personnel are generally not allowed to tell you how to handle your case. Many New Jersey Law Division personnel are not lawyers or certified paralegals. Be careful to avoid relying on the advice of New Jersey Law Division personnel. Don’t expect a New Jersey judge to be convinced if you argue that you relied on of New Jersey Law Division personnel when making certain decisions in your New Jersey case!

PREPARE FOR TRIAL IMMEDIATELY!
Don’t wait until the day or week before New Jersey trial to prepare for your New Jersey trial! Far in advance of your New Jersey trial, documents have to be requested collected, witnesses subpoenaed. It is not uncommon for a person to show up at a New Jersey trial asking for an adjournment because they are not ready to try their New Jersey case, with the New Jersey judge refusing to grant the request! New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants often appear at a New Jersey trial unprepared only to learn the hard way that, very often, the key to winning a New Jersey trial is careful preparation.

DON’T THINK THAT YOU ARE CERTAIN TO WIN YOUR SPECAL CIVIL CASE SIMPLY BY FILING PAPERS AND SHOWING UP AT YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL!!
Winning a New Jersey case is not simply a matter of preparing and filing a complaint or answer and showing up at New Jersey Law Division. Many people think that their proofs are certain to result in their winning their New Jersey case. But most likely, you only know your side of the story of your New Jersey part case and you don’t know your New Jersey opponent’s side of that story. To be prepared to try your New Jersey case, you need to know your opponent’s side of your New Jersey case. Otherwise, you may learn for the first time too late at the New Jersey trial that you are not certain to win your New Jersey case.

DON’T EXPECT THE NEW JERSEY LAW DIVISION TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE DETAILS OF YOUR CASE
New Jersey part is one of the busiest of all of the sections of the Superior Court of New Jersey. Don’t ever expect New Jersey Law Division personnel to be familiar with the details of your New Jersey case. Usually, most New Jersey Law Division personnel never read your complaints, answers and motions. When dealing with New Jersey Law Division personnel, be prepared to explain those details of your New Jersey case that are necessary for them to understand your New Jersey case.

IF YOU EXPECT TO CALL WITNESSES AT YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL, MAKE SURE TO ISSUE SUBPOENAS FOR THEIR APPEARANCE
To make certain that a witness will appear to give testimony in your New Jersey trial, prepare proper New Jersey subpoenas and have them properly served on the witness well in advance of your New Jersey trial. Otherwise the witness may not show up at your New Jersey trial and you may be without crucial evidence to prove your New Jersey case!

IF YOU WANT TO USE DOCUMENTS AT YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL, BE PREPARED TO HAVE THE RIGHT PERSON PRESENT TO TESTIFY ABOUT THOSE DOCUMENTS
You cannot always use documents at your New Jersey trial. Even affidavits are often unusable at a New Jersey trial. Often, New Jersey parties are prevented from using documents at their New Jersey trials because they don’t have the right person to testify about the document’s authenticity/accuracy. You may need to call and subpoena witnesses to testify about the documents that you want to use at your New Jersey trial!

WRITE OUT THE QUESTIONS YOU SHALL ASK AT YOUR NEW JERSEY TRIAL BEFORE IT STARTS
New Jersey judges usually want you to be prepared to start your New Jersey trial as soon as your New Jersey case is called to be tried. New Jersey judges don’t want to wait for you to decide what questions you will ask your witnesses during the New Jersey trial. How you ask your questions during your New Jersey trial could affect whether you win your New Jersey case. Take the time to prepare your New Jersey direct examination and New Jersey cross examination in advance of your New Jersey trial.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PARTIES 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!
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 the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey Case. Not all New Jersey Cases require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help.
