If you have never been to Court before, you may think a number of things will occur, but it is very possible you will be disappointed.
When you go to court, most people believe that the truth will be spoken and the Judge will have an easy time of determining what is right and wrong between the parties. NOT TRUE. You must expect your opponent to be tricky and devious and do their best to deceive the Court as to the facts. You must expect their attorney to use the technicalities of the law to confuse and fluster. You just may walk out of the courtroom with a completely different result than you expected and that you knew to be right.
This is another reason why it is prudent to always try to go to Mediation and reach a compromised settlement. Certainty is the key to peace and tranquility.
If you must go to trial, be sure to have every “i” dotted and every “t” crossed. Never put down your guard and never expect things to go as you expect.
Sounds a bit oxymoronic doesn’t it?
