Publisher Description:

Did someone VIolate your rights? Have you been rear-ended and unable to get reimbursed? Did a neighbor build a fence on your side of the property? Were you fired unfairly? Did someone harm your business? Are you thinking of suing? If so–or if someone is suing you–then you need Sue the Bastards!, a comprehensive resource that shows you how litigation really works. Far too many people are wronged, get worked up, and hire a fast-talking lawyer, only to find themselves stressed-out and in debt before the case has even been tried. But Gerry Fox, a top entertainment litigator who has won millions of dollars for his high-profile clients, attributes his success to planning, strategizing, and tempered reason, which you will find in abundance in this valuable book. With his sound advice, you will be in a better position to win your case and minimize the expense and wear and tear of the litigation process. In Sue the Bastards!, Gerry Fox and writer Jeff Nelson explain legal procedures, principles, and pitfalls in everyday language. This book will help you decide whether or not you even should sue. The authors offer an overview of the entire litigation process–from the decisions that go into filing a lawsuit and a complaint, through the discovery process, and ultimately to the trial. And in the process they offer valuable insights on such fundamental and important issues as finding the right attorney for your particular case, working well with your attorney, constructing a realistic budget, and considering alternative means of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation. Gerald P. Fox is an attorney who has represented numerous celebrities, including Madonna, Anita Baker, Tom Waits, and M.C. Hammer. He has appeared on television shows such as Hard Copy, Entertainment Tonight, and Good Morning America. Jeffrey A. Nelson is a writer and producer in Los Angeles. He learned about litigation at the knee of Gerry Fox, who represented him in some hard-fought legal battles (which they won!).
