Every lawsuit begins with a complaint filed by one or more plaintiffs.

See how easily this is explained?
Making lawsuits "ridiculously easy-to-understand" is why Jurisdictionary
is popular with litigants in every state of the U.S. and in Canada,
Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, India, and Puerto Rico ...
people with and people without a lawyer!
If you have a lawyer, my course will save you thousands in legal fees, because you'll know what your lawyer should be doing to earn his or her fees!
If you don't have a lawyer, my course will show you the proper method to win your case ... step-by-step!
This diagram in printable form is included in my official, affordable, step-by-step, 24-hourJurisdictionary course that includes many
other diagrams, charts, sample forms, and simplified explanations that
demonstrate how to use the rules of court with practical tactics that
give you the power to win ... with or without a lawyer!
A picture is worth a thousand words, and this diagram could be worth thousands of dollars to YOU if you learn what it teaches and apply it in your court case!
1. The plaintiff in this simple chart sues Defendant A and Defendant B.
2. Defendant B counter-claims against Plaintiff.
3. Defendant A cross-claims against Defendant B.
4. Defendant B counter-cross-claims against Defendant A.
5. Defendant A also files a third-party complaint against Third Party Defendant.
6. Third-Party Defendant counter-claims against Defendant A.
There are variations on each of these that you'll learn about in my
simplified step-by-step course, but each of the variations is really
just a type of one of these shown in the diagram.
See how simple lawsuits really are?
In some cases the complaint is called a "petition" and the person filing
it is called the "petitioner", but the types are the same. Most cases
involve plaintiffs and defendants, but in actions that sound principally
in "equity" (explained in my course) the plaintiff is called a
petitioner, and the responding party is called a respondent. Otherwise,
case structure is the same.
Knowledge overcomes fear.
Knowledge brings confidence.
Confidence yields courage and determination.
Couple these together the way I teach in my course, and you have the winning formula for success in court!
If you must fear something, fear not knowing how to use the rules of court to win!
The rules are on YOUR side. Once you learn what I teach about using them
tactically and strategically to control courtroom corruption, the rules
give power to overcome your opponent and corrupt judges.
Cursing the darkness does no good at all.
There will be darkness.
There will be corruption.
There will be dirty tricks and crooked maneuvers by the other side.
There will be judges who are biased against you.
The knowledge you need is mostly common sense.
It is nothing like differential calculus or quantum theory.
It's all straight-forward, step-by-step procedure that is regulated by rules any average 8th grader can learn.
REMEMBER: The hardest part of winning in court is having a clear idea what's happening and why!
Learn how the Justice System works ... step-by-step!
Know how each simple step in the process fits together and how
increasing your knowledge of the details of each simple step in the
process will bring you closer to the victory and justice you deserve!
Everyone knows there are only 9 innings in a baseball game (unless the
teams are tied at the bottom of the 9th). Everyone knows the visiting
team gets to be first to bat. Everyone knows a batter has to go back to
the dugout after 3 strikes. It's simple. It's baseball. It's America!
But, how many of you or your friends know how simple a lawsuit is?
How many parts does a lawsuit have?
How do the separate parts fit together?
Not many people know how simple lawsuits really are!
Because you were never taught - and my profession has kept this valuable
knowledge from you on purpose - most of you are at the mercy of
It shouldn't be that way here in America!
So, I created my step-by-stepJurisdictionary course.
Now everyone can know how to win in court!
Learn how to state your position clearly in writing using properly-drafted pleadings, motions, and memoranda.
Learn why, how, and when to object in court properly with solid grounds for objections the court cannot ignore.
Learn how to examine your own witnesses, using direct examination when you cannot use leading questions.
Learn how to cross-examine your opponent's witnesses in a way that gets
answers you need, instead of alienating witnesses with leading questions
that pry unnecessarily.
Gain judges' RESPECT by demonstrating you know how to follow the
official rules and won't be wasting valuable court time or trying
judges' patience with a bizarre legal theory you learned about in an
Only the rules rule.
Nothing else works!
Knowing the rules of litigation (the rules of evidence and the rules of
procedure) and how to use them properly is how you win favor with
Winning favor with judges is a good thing!
Flattery will get you nowhere.
Using complex legal language you barely understand will get you nowhere.
Trying to trick the other side will get you nowhere.
Knowing how to use the rules will get you victory!
You will impress judges and gain favor with the court by using the
easy-to-learn tactics and procedures I explain in my 24-hour
I make it so easy an average 8th grader can understand it all and apply the principles effectively to win in court.
If you don't know the rules and how to use them, if you waste the
court's valuable time with arguments that don't hold "legal water", if
you object but don't know the grounds for your objections, and continue
to irritate the judge and waste the court's time by not knowing how
things are done in court, you cannot expect the judge to be favorable to your cause.
When I first started learning 25 years ago what I make easy for you to learn with my affordable official Jurisdictionary
self-help course, the business of law was often confusing and
overwhelming at times. Getting my feet wet as a fledgling lawyer, I
often had to go up against lawyers who had as much experience as I have
now, and they cut me no slack. The advantage I had over younger lawyers
(I didn't start my practice until age 42) was common sense and life
experience. I learned quickly how to avoid traps and tricks of my
In the past quarter-century I learned what it takes to win.
Now you can know what I learned in those 25 years of fighting in the courthouse trenches!
It's not all about the law, you see!
It's about knowing how to use the rules!
You can know the "law" about the facts of your case. You can cite and
recite it backward and forward. You can convince your friends and family
members that you have the law "on your side".
If you don't yet know what I explain in my affordable and increasingly popular 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary course, you will still lose!
I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO WIN!
Far too many good people lose in court because they don't know how to
control the lawyer on the other side or the black-robed judge on the
bench. They may, indeed, have the "law on their side", but if they don't
know how to control a deposition (for just one small example) or when
to proceed to deposition or how to draft a proper motion or why it's
important to make courtroom objections (for just a few additional
examples) they lose ... needlessly!
Would you pay $249 to win your case?
My 3-years at law school cost tens of thousands. And, there's no price
you can put on my 25 years of experience defeating crooked lawyers,
controlling corrupt judges, and winning critical battles in-the-trenches
for my clients!
My education and experience can be yours!
It's all in my affordable and increasingly popular 24-hour step-by-step official Jurisdictionary course.
If you don't already have my course, get it now!
If you have it and haven't yet studied all 4 CDs, get to work learning,
before some crooked lawyer or corrupt judge throws you under the
You must make an effort ... if you want to win!
Spend just 24-hours with Jurisdictionary to discover the secrets my profession doesn't want you to know!
Master procedural law and the methods that win!
Just having "the law on your side" is not enough!
Once you know what Jurisdictionary teaches, you'll never again fall into the trap of thinking that knowing "substantive law" is enough.
Why be tricked by other members of my profession?
Learn how to win favor with judges.
Learn procedural law: The Rules of Evidence and the Rules of Procedure.
And, learn how to use the rules effectively to win!
Take advantage of my 25 years of experience!
Beware the law firm of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe!
I go into every case expecting the lawyer on the other side to be a liar
and a crook. I anticipate the judge will be biased against me, so I win
over the judge by showing that I know the law and how to use the rules correctly!
Go to www.WordWar.com to learn more.
Don't be tricked by your lack of legal knowledge!
You really can't expect to win if you only know what you learn from your
in-box, from amateur lawyer wannabe legal gurus, or weekend seminars
run by folks who have no law degree or extended courtroom experience.
I've been a member of the bar for 25 years!
I know what it takes to win and will show YOU how!

Pro se people who use my course are winning in court!
But! Pro se people often do not get justice.
Consider the following facts:
Most pro se people don't know the rules or how to use them to win (evidence and procedure rules).
Most pro se people don't know how to prevent the lawyer on the other side from playing tricks with the rules.
Most pro se people make assumptions about what is "admissible evidence" and stuff that isn't.
Most pro se people don't know how to draft their pleadings or motions properly.
Most pro se people don't know why it's important to write proposed orders for the judge to sign.
Most pro se people don't know why, when, or how to make effective objections in court.
Most pro se people don't understand what facts are critical
to winning a case and what facts are of no consequence but only muddy
the waters with court-confusing insignificance.
Most pro se people don't know why it's so vitally important
to cite controlling appellate cases in support of their pre-trial and
Most pro se people don't know how to arrange for a written transcript to be made of all proceedings before the court, so they can control the judge.
Most pro se people waste valuable court time with
non-essentials, fail to appreciate the needs of others who have their
own problems to bring before the court and, as a consequence, tend to
make judges dread pro se cases.
Pro se people who know what I explain so simply in the official Jurisdictionary step-by-step 24-hour course are winning and even getting compliments from judges and even opposing lawyers ... because they do it right!
Read the testimonials! ⇒
Not all judges are "against" pro se people "just because they are pro se". Most of the judges I knew in my 25 years were good people who cared about other people and did their best to guarantee justice according to the rules.
But! You must know how to protect yourself!
Pro se parties who know the rules and how to use them to protect themselves from courtroom corruption the way my Jurisdictionary step-by-step 24-hour course makes so easy-to-understand don't let crooked lawyers get away with their smoke-and-mirrors tricks!
The difference between winners and losers is the fact that winners know how to win and losers cry about it!
If you want to make it complicated and muddy the pond with all kinds of
nutty arguments, you can do so, make the judge angry, and lose when your
"evidence" isn't admitted because it isn't "admissible evidence",
You can demand your Constitutional Rights, instead of learning about causes of action and their elements that win lawsuits, and you will lose.
You can refuse to learn the rules of evidence, the rules of procedure,
and the tactics and strategies my course is so popular for making easy
to learn, and you will lose!
If you want to win, get my affordable Jurisdictionary step-by-step 24-hour course now and master the case-winning strategies and tactics I used for 25 years as a case-winning lawyer in state and federal courts.
There is only ONE "Official Jurisdictionary" course!
If you're paying a lawyer, know what your lawyer should be doing to earn his fee and win your case.
If you don't have a lawyer, know what you must do to force the judge do what's right and prevent the lawyer on the other side from cheating.
It's that simple.
Read the testimonials! ⇒
In short, you'll learn how to save money, maximize your winning power,
and resolve conflicts peacefully and profitably ... according to the
Once you master the simple concepts I teach, you'll be more powerful
than most lawyers I met in 25 years as a licensed lawyer in state and
federal courts as a licensed bar attorney!
Many lawyers are afraid to upset judges, so they let things slide. They
don't object. They don't "instruct" the judge on the law. They just lay
back, take their hourly fee, and let their clients lose ... and those
who pay lawyers yet don't know what Jurisdictionary teaches about winning are led to the slaughter by their own lawyer.
Sad, but true!
I know what it takes to win. I did this 25 years!
You probably know people who need to knock down judges and overcome
crooked lawyers and their dishonest tricks. They will thank you for
turning them on to this!
Or, do both! Forward this newsletter AND send emails to friends fighting in court who desperately need to know how to win!
Most lawyers never learn what Jurisdictionary
makes so easy-to-learn. People have been telling me since I started
Jurisdictionary in 1997 that, "Your course should be required in first
year law school." But, of course, that's not likely to happen, because
what Jurisdictionary shows you isn't politically correct! I
teach you how to control judges, instead of bowing to them, I I teach
you how to overcome crooked lawyers and their all-too-common sneaky

Winners do what Jurisdictionary makes easy-to-learn and don't wait until trial to get justice!
Those who learn my affordable 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary self-help course win ... no matter how high the odds are stacked against them!
Winners know how to win!
Losers believe internet fables. Losers get their legal education at the
barbershop or on websites or expensive weekend seminars run by people
who never practiced law, never went to law school, and don't know mud
from sand about rules or how to use them to control judges.
Too many good folks believe mythological silver-bullet easy solutions to their legal problems and, as a result, are losing when they would be winning if they knew what I make so easy-to-learn in my Jurisdictionary course!
The internet is infested with hare-brained schemes that sound too good
to be true ... and, like the old adage says, "If it sounds to good to be
true, it probably isn't."
Remember: The most dangerous falsehoods are ones we most want to believe!
Why not learn from a real lawyer with nearly 25 years of case-winning experience?
My course is not expensive!
People who finish my course say an average 8th grader can learn it all in a single weekend.

If you have a lawyer, you will save thousands in legal fees by knowing what your lawyer should be doing, and at the same time you will maximize your chances for success by making certain your lawyer does what should be done, instead of taking you for a ride to the poorhouse - as happens to too many good people these days.
If you don't have a lawyer, you'll know how to stop the opponent's crooked tricks and control the judge!
