Winning lawyers use trial presentations. So can you.

Small Claims Court hearings are typically only 15-30 minutes. You must be effective and efficient in presenting your case within that limited time.

A strong trial presentation includes several key components to help you win:
(1) A defendant statement to summarize your story (you don’t owe any money, you owe less, or that you can only pay in smaller payments over time);
(2) A comprehensive timeline;
(3) All your key evidence;
(4) Supporting documentation to recover costs and show that you followed all the necessary court procedures.

You may want to send a Settlement Letter if you haven’t yet.
