New to this site? Before you begin you should have a general knowledge of how this strategy works.
      IF YOU ARE AN ATTORNEY, please understand that herein is a completely different perspective on the law. This is not business as usual. Your education was primarily geared to equity law. This site is primarily about common law, which is similar, but sufficiently different that to benefit from it you must be prepared to revamp your perspective.
      IF YOU ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY and you are uncomfortable about your knowledge of the law, consider purchasing the compact 2-day law course from Jurisdictionary. Though based on equity procedures, it will be a major help for you to understand the common law procedures. Don't be part of the pro se problem! After absorbing that information you should be ready to learn the advance information here.
      READ EVERYTHING IN THIS WEB PAGE. As you progress, click on each underlined link and read the linked page. The linked page may have more links, but ignore them. Don't chase the links! Just click on the BACK button to return to this page, then click on the next underlined link. It is not important that you immediately understand everything you read. What is important is that you get "eyeball exposure" to all the information . The understanding will come later because you will recall the information as you work with it and discuss it with others.
      THEN, look at the example starting with the first amended action. That is from an actual case in Southern California.      Once you have been thus exposed to the information, we will be much more effective in our conversation. If you send e-mail, be certain to mention something about the law or this website/CD in the subject area.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
       Wise men are instructed by reason;
       Men of less understanding, by experience;
       The most ignorant, by necessity;
       The beasts by nature.
