It’s a step by step guide for finding cases and statutes to support your case.
But to win, you’ll need more than the law. If you’re preparing for a dismissal hearing, here are the questions you need to ask:

Are there objections to any questions? Can an affidavit create or resolve a factual dispute? Can your opponent’s affidavit be attacked?
So we’re also sending our free 5-day course on How To Slay In Court Without a Lawyer to help you avoid the most common errors when representing yourself.
Good luck in your case!
