How to Win in Court: What Your Lawyer Doesn’t Have Time to Tell You by Philip Gegan [REVIEW]



If the prospect of having to give evidence or defend legal proceedings in court makes you nervous this Guide is for you. It covers everything you need to know, including –

* how to get as close to arrest proofing yourself as it is possible to get,
* how to find a successful lawyer or attorney who will win your court case for you,
* how to represent yourself without a lawyer (if that’s what you want) without alienating the judge;
* how to collect and safeguard the evidence you need to win your case;
* how to prevail in a savage cross-examination from a seasoned professional; and
* how to win the sympathy of the judge or jury who will decide whether you win or lose.

But aren’t court cases won by the best lawyers?

Well, that’s often how it seems, but it’s not that simple. You see, even the best courtroom advocate depends on the instructions he’s given, the evidence he has available, and the witnesses he interviews.

So how do you make sure your lawyer has full instructions, solid evidence, and reliable, clued up witnesses?

Once you know how to do this then the prospect of fighting your case in court, whether as plaintiff or defendant in a civil case, or as the accused in a criminal trial, becomes much less intimidating.

Find out
* what to do if you’re arrested;
* how to handle an ID parade;
* how to handle your home or business premises being searched by the police (“police search and seizure”);
* how to make sure your witnesses don’t let you down;
* how to recover money owing to you; and
* how to pursue and contest custody and maintenance claims.

Written by a former Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales, in straightforward, layman’s language, this 18,500 word Guide can be read in an hour or two. Yet it covers everything you need to be aware of.

As you know, the law varies from one jurisdiction to another. So this book does not constitute legal advice, as such, but it does give you all the “para-legal” advice that applies everywhere and that your lawyer simply doesn’t have the time to cover.

In court you may or may not get justice. But you do get a result. Make sure that result is favourable to you.


This is a practical guide for anyone who has or will be involved in some type of court case. The author defines common terms, explains how to hire an attorney & provides sample letters.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.


  1. When we purchased our property it has absolute water rights. Our neighbors had been using our water as they pleased and sued us when we started using it. We have been through 3 lawsuits and won every single one. I learned everything I could about water law, and read books just like this and others on how to file motions with the court etc. So I’m not a lawyer, but I can play one on t.v. The last one, they spent $53,000 on attorneys, and we spent the initial $248 to file our response. And for two years this lawsuit consumed every free moment and then some. It went to trial, and they lost. So when I saw the title, I was amused, because their lawyer called me and tried to intimidate me into dropping our defense, or at least hire an attorney, because there was no way we could do this. Lawyers, whadda gonna do?
