- Episode 303:I'll Do It Myself
Small claims court is designed to allow people to settle their disputes, in court, without using attorneys.
The proceedings are a little less formal, there are opportunities to settle the dispute through mediation right at the beginning of the process, hearings are streamlined, and the process is for disputes of $8,000 or less (in Florida).
What should you know about small claims court, and why do few attorneys like to practice in small claims court?
At the very beginning of the show (Episode 7) I also discussed small claims court. You can hear that show at: https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/yesnerlawpodcast/236985793-yesner_law_podcast-episode-7-small-claims-court.mp3
Please also support our sponsor Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance by introducing him to an attorney or title company that is in need of malpractice insurance, or who has a malpractice insurance renewal approaching. Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.
If you think it would be helpful for me to develop a course of some materials to help people navigate small claims court with the knowledge of attorney, but without the price tag of one, please let me know - Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
