Litigation By The Numbers®

 The Essential California Civil Litigation Handbook – Revised July 2019

There’s a rule for everything in California State Court litigation. The ones you have to follow to prepare and timely file and serve your document could be in the Code of Civil Procedure, the California Rules of Court, or, as is often the case, both! There are mandatory court forms for various procedures as well. Litigation By The Numbers® (“LBTN”) is a 488-page California civil litigation practice guide which brings those codes, rules, and forms together in one place and explains the procedures step-by-step. LBTN is relied on throughout California by attorneys and their entire staff. (Watch our short video to see why!) If you are a party to a lawsuit represented by counsel or representing yourself, you’ll find that LBTN goes a long way toward taking the mystery out of the process.

California Civil Litigation and Discovery

California Civil Litigation and Discovery (“CCLD”) is a 218-page coil bound book updated as of January 2018 (9th Edition) which 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.
