Litigation By The Numbers®

The Essential California Civil Litigation Handbook

Litigation By The Numbers® (“LBTN”) (Rev. January 2016)

There’s a rule for everything in California State Court litigation. The ones you have to follow could be in the Code of Civil Procedure, the Rules of Court, or, as is usually the case, both. There are mandatory court forms, too. Litigation By The Numbers® (“LBTN”) – the essential CA civil litigation handbook updated every January and July, brings all of those codes, rules, and forms together in one place.

Watch our 77-second video to see why and how LBTN

is relied on by everyone in the law office from the

most experienced attorney to the most inexperienced trainee!

For more information about LBTN, including Excerpts and Testimonials, click “About the Books” in the menu.

The LBTN July 2016 update will be issued in late June. If you buy the January version after 5/15/16, you’ll receive a free July 2016 update. If you purchase “The Works” or “The Combo Pak,” the July Update won’t count towards your year. 

California Civil Litigation and Discovery (“CCLD” or “Companion”) (Rev. Jan. 2016)

Revised in January 2016, CCLD is a 218-page coil bound book. It takes a substantive approach to litigation, e.g., what the pleadings should say (naming parties, jurisdiction, stating elements of causes of action), rather than what they look like and how they are filed and served; discovery strategies and drafting hints (scope of discovery, discovery plans, drafting written discovery, objections, and responses) rather than format, limits, and deadlines, etc.  For more about CCLD, including excerpts, click here.


Video: “Calendaring in State Court: Steps and Traps for the Unwary” (Introduced 2016!)

It doesn’t matter how perfect your papers are if they are filed or served late! To calendar correctly in California, one must identify and follow a ridiculous number of rules which change often! Our Calendaring Video (only $49!) will teach you how to do it correctly and point out traps and mistakes you can avoid. For a preview of the Calendaring Video and Testimonials, click here.
