Discover The Territory:   

Becoming Familiar With The Arena

 

 

“Great events ever depend but upon a single hair.  The adroit man profits by everything, neglects nothing which can increase his chances; the less adroit, by sometimes disregarding a single chance, fails in everything…” 

-- Napoleon 

 

“A pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood…” 

-- General George S. Patton 

 

“Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat: how much more no calculation at all! It is by attention to this point that I can foresee who is likely to win or lose.”

-- Sun Tzu

Introduction

 

Reading this book is great and will go a long way toward helping you prepare and present a winning case in court. But even after you’ve worked through every page of How To Win Your Case In Court, and perhaps other books like it, your knowledge will never be more than instructive theory until you wake up one morning, get yourself dressed and haul yourself downtown to the courthouse to see for yourself.  

 

What general would venture his troops into combat before he had seen the battlefield for himself, firsthand? What restaurateur would plunk down hard-earned investment dollars on an eatery he’d never set foot in? Likewise, before your day of trial comes and you walk into court with your trial notebook bulging with facts and exhibits, you need to visit the courtroom yourself. In fact, no pro se should wait until the day of trial to become familiar with a courtroom – and not just any courtroom, but ideally the courtroom where your case will be heard, and where your judge presides. Take your time, listen to some cases, jot down notes. This will be some of the most instructive time you spend preparing for trial.
