A Great Place to Call Home

If you are the Plaintiff:

Present your facts in a straight forward manner. Tell the truth; remember, you will be under oath. Explain to the Judge why you believe the defendant owes you money, or has failed to live up to his commitments. Have your witnesses present to give their testimony and bring all your exhibits to Court. The Judge may question you and your witnesses to obtain the information needed to arrive at a fair decision. Answer all questions directly and honestly. When you have concluded your case, the Judge will hear the defendant's side. You will have the opportunity to present additional or "rebuttal" evidence at the close of the defendant's case since you, as plaintiff, have the ultimate burden of persuasion to convince the Court in order to obtain a judgment in your favor.
