Best legal forms, systems, and books, for litigation lawyers.

A "review of the best" -- forms (depositions, settlements, litigation, and trials); trial notebook system (organization, forms, trial procedures, law, tactics advice); books to learn or improve your litigation, discovery, or trial skills.

These selections are limited to what we think are the "one best of field," providing lawyers and superior tools, law, tactics, and advice to win! The objective of this site is to give you sound advice on where to find the practical litigation law summaries, the tools --- from complete trial notebooks to the forms for depositions, settlements, discovery --- and the books that lawyers can use to become better in discovery, settlement and trial.

Best Trial Notebook

When you get to a deposition or to the courthouse for trial, everything will be in order. The object of this trial notebook system is deposition and courtroom success through ability to organize and knowing what to do, when, and how. This Trial Notebooks site is a one product site, designed to sell only one product: a trial notebook for lawyers and legal assistants. The author is a noted trial attorney. This is an extremely well thought-out trial notebook system that has been used successfully by thousands of attorneys.

Best Litigation Forms for Lawyers

This site does have a a range of forms articles to speed you on your way, but the core of its product catalog are the deposition question outline forms. The motto of LawyerTrialForms™ -- "Making good lawyers better" -- is really what these excellent legal forms do. Many of the forms contain a bonus of short summaries of the law or pages of excellent advice on tactics.

Litigation lawyers and their legal assistants already know that deposition legal forms, checklists, and deposition outlines give you a head start. The more experienced they are, the more they start a project from a form. It is because forms allow you to do litigation, deposition, and trial preparation faster and easier. This site has a broad selection of quality "best available" trial and litigation forms.

Best Settlement Forms

The nearly inevitable settlement of the lawsuit comes after attorney participation in negotiation or in an alternative dispute format, e.g., mediation, arbitration, mini-trials. Settlement through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution dominate the outcome of almost all litigation today. This site is developing a number of legal negotiation, settlement tools, tactics and advice, and forms for use throughout the negotiation process until final closing and "nail down" of the settlement. "Settlement forms are power tools"

Best Tactics and Forms for Attorney Fee Award Disputes

Their handbook is a real summary of the law involved in prosecuting or defending attorney fee awards, plus it has forms, such as deposition or trial testimony checklists for the expert testifying on the reasonableness of the attorney fee being asserted. "Compact handbook of law, tactics, forms for attorney fee award litigation" is done in the style of the familiar "X for Dummies", or the "X in a Nutshell" series. It's designed to be read completely (a two hour read) at the start of the case, so that you have a good grounding for either making a claim, or defending against a claim, for an "reasonable attorney fee."

Their book Attorney Fee Awards: a handbook for attorneys" is packed with information, but not a multi-volume work on attorney fees. If you want "all the law," buy the multi-hundred sets on attorney fee awards offered by major law publishers. But if you want a readable handbook to point the way (plus give you forms) this is for you.
