Civil Practice in the Lehigh Valley, the Poconos and Beyond (Electronic Download)

Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, and Pike Counties

Available: In Stock
Price: $69.00
Item Code: 10873-DL


Written for the lawyer whose practice spans the counties that make up the Lehigh Valley and beyond, this book offers a “nuts and bolts” look at practice within Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike Counties. It is a basic tutorial to trying a case from start to finish, including valuable guidance on important contacts and phone numbers, directions to the courthouses, fee schedules, key local rules, and pre-trial, trial and post-trial procedures. This book contains a collection of sample forms unique to each county—a valuable resource to anyone trying to navigate through a foreign court system! 

Do not let the words, “nuts and bolts,” fool you, though, as nearly everyone who practices in one or more of these counties can benefit from the information in this book. Not only do the authors cover procedure, but they also cover local nuance—the very subtleties that you do not learn from a typical procedure book. Rules change, people change, forms change, and the authors spend countless hours compiling and verifying information to deliver a wholly up-to-date guidebook. Our authors are all familiar faces within their respective counties and are well-known for their strong presence in the courtroom.
