This project provides advice and counseling to litigants in small claims court. It has been designed to be especially suitable for retired lawyers through very flexible scheduling and formation of very short-term attorney-client relationships.
Unrepresented parties use small claims court to resolve disputes of under $5000. While designed to be used by unrepresented parties, small court procedures can be daunting to many individuals. Volunteers help parties understand procedures, inform them about evidentiary and legal issues related to their claim, and can provide a realistic assessment of their claims and defenses.
At the small claims court.
