    Civil Procedure Legal Research

    An attorney's daily practice is affected directly by the various procedural rules that govern each level of the judicial system. The rules are legion, and compliance with them is absolutely essential to providing clients with the best possible representation.

    A carefully prepared case has no meaning if it is not filed in a timely fashion, if it has been filed in the wrong court, or if it is subject to attack on a wide variety of other procedural grounds.
