Some cases are too big for Small Claims Court and too small to interest a lawyer. But Win Your Lawsuit in California takes you step by step through the entire process of a limited jurisdiction case in California Superior Court. Take on common types of civil court cases worth up to 25,000, including:

Contract disputes;
Personal injuries;
Property damage cases;
Business disputes.

Whether you're bringing the suit or defending against one, this plain-English legal guide shows you how to prepare a complaint, file and serve papers, participate in settlement negotiations, present a case and much more. All the forms you need are included.
