Are We A Good Fit? — Read the FAQs

Does this work for my type of case? +

If your opponent has an attorney and you don’t, you’re outmatched. The lawyer representing your opponent has a graduate education in the law, years of practice on the types of claims in your case, and relationships with judges and court personnel. Courtroom5 is designed to help people without lawyers overcome these advantages so you can get a fair hearing in court.

Courtroom5 has helped people handle foreclosures, debt collection, high-conflict divorce, child custody, probate, and other matters that rely on the rules of civil procedure. Criminal cases, traffic tickets, small claims, and evictions are not well suited to Courtroom5.
