DISCLAIMER: These training materials and sample documents are for reference and instructional purposes only. Attorneys should not rely on these materials as stand-alone practice guides or as a substitute for conducting their own primary research and independent reading of cited statutes, rules, regulations, cases, and other sources. Moreover, attorneys should not rely on the sample pleadings and other documents as a substitute for drafting their own pleadings and documents. It is especially important to consider recent changes to the law or common practices. In addition, arguments and strategies implemented in sample pleadings or sample agreements may be inapplicable or detrimental to your client’s situation, as every case has its own facts and circumstances.
