SPECIAL CIVIL CONSUMER LAWSUIT CONSULTING SERVICES

WHAT IS A SPECIAL CIVIL LAWSUIT?
A Special Civil case is a New Jersey civil court case filed in the Special Civil Part – a branch of the New Jersey Superior Court. Special Civil cases involve New Jersey civil disputes for damages of $15,000.00 (but attorney’s fees and court costs or litigation costs may exceed the Special Civil damages limit of $15,000.00). In a Special Civil case, a person or business that claims they are owed money damages files a Special Civil lawsuit against the person or business that supposedly owes the damages at a New Jersey courthouse. The Special Civil lawsuit usually seeks the recovery of money damages from the person or business who allegedly owes the money damages. The purpose of a Special Civil lawsuit is normally for the Special Civil plaintiffs – the persons or businesses filing the Special Civil lawsuit – to recover a money judgment against the Special Civil defendants identified in the Special Civil lawsuit (called a Special Civil “complaint”).

WHAT ARE SPECIAL CIVIL CONSUMER LAWSUITS?
Special Civil consumer lawsuits are a type of case filed in the Special Civil Part and that usually involve a variety of contracts for the sale of goods or services in New Jersey or by or with someone located in New Jersey or doing business in New Jersey. Many Special Civil consumer lawsuits involve a New Jersey individual or New Jersey business buying goods or services from a New Jersey business selling those goods or services. Often, the New Jersey individual or New Jersey business buying goods or services claim that the goods or services are not what was promised or what was purchased or that the services were not completed or that the goods were defective.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COURT?
The New Jersey Special Civil Part usually provides certain types of Special Civil legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Special Civil Part forms provided by the New Jersey Special Civil Part court – the forms are often deceptively simple, while Special Civil Part cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent Special Civil attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey Special Civil Part cases. Special Civil forms don’t talk and Special Civil forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey Special Civil Part case. Each New Jersey Special Civil Part case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey Special Civil trial attorney, it is best to have the Special Civil attorney prepare your New Jersey Special Civil Part paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL CASE MYSELF?
Many people can and do successfully handle New Jersey Special Civil cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Special Civil judgment. However, many other people also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey Special Civil cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Special Civil money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey Special Civil case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey Special Civil case:
• New Jersey Special Civil fees often change
• New Jersey Special Civil rules often change
• New Jersey Special Civil employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Special Civil court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
• each New Jersey Special Civil case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for people to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Special Civil complaints that result in the New Jersey Special Civil complaints or answers to New Jersey Special Civil complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Special Civil or being dismissed by the New Jersey Special Civil after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey Special Civil case.
• a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their New Jersey Special Civil case out of court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Special Civil trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often parties stumble into New Jersey Special Civil with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Special Civil. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Special Civil trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Special Civil expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case to explain court rules, evidence rules, court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey Special Civil case. The judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose your New Jersey Special Civil case. Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey Special Civil case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey Special Civil case or to avoid certain mistakes.
