Product details

LexisNexis® Practice Guide: Michigan Pretrial Civil Procedure is a new addition to the practice guide line for Michigan attorneys. This new publication covers pretrial civil procedure in Michigan circuit courts from pretrial planning up through summary judgment and preparing for trial. Each chapter contains background analysis, forms, and practice tips and pointers for Michigan practitioners.

The publication, which incorporates Michigan statutes, rules, cases, and forms as appropriate, was created under the close guidance of Editorial Consultant Linda M. Watson, a highly skilled litigator and business advisor at Clark Hill, PLC in Birmingham, Michigan.

This publication complements the existing LexisNexis line of Michigan products, including LexisNexis® Practice Guide: Michigan Estate Planning, LexisNexis® Practice Guide: Michigan Real Estate Litigation, Michigan Civil Procedure Litigation Manual, Michigan Evidence Courtroom Manual, Michigan Civil Jurisprudence, and Michigan Law and Practice.

The publication provides detailed real-world practical guidance on civil litigation timetables, forms, rules, and procedures for Michigan circuit court practice. The publication is intended as a primer and guide for new and less-experienced litigators and trial lawyers, and a handy refresher and reference work for experienced trial lawyers working out of their normal practice, or simply to verify deadlines, procedures, and use of forms.
