Unique in the New Jersey market, a one-source solution to virtually every issue related to the commencement of an action in a New Jersey court, including procedurally-driven, "how to" coverage of:

•  Drafting and filing complaints
•  Service of process
•  Responsive pleadings
•  Amended and supplemental pleadings
•  Motion practice
•  Special proceedings
•  Summary actions
•  Prerogative writs
•  And much more

Chapter parts begin with a detailed practice checklist (60 checklists total) defining the essentials of a major task, e.g., "Satisfying Requirements for Issuance of Summons and Service of Summons and Complain" and "Determining Whether Action in Lieu of Prerogative Writs May Be Brought." Checklists capture the essential steps (what, when, how) of each task with cross-references to relevant authority, forms, and discussion of the topic within the chapter itself.

Each Practice Guide chapter combines authoritative legal analysis with an expert author's practical insights that have been distilled from years of litigation practice. New Jersey Pleadings includes more than 175 Practice Tips including Strategic Point, Warning, Timing, and Exception (with easy-to-recognize icons) that transition smoothly from legal analysis to practical application of a point of law.

New Jersey Pleadings includes more than 250 forms references in checklists and in chapter text. Fillable, downloadable forms are included in the online subscription to this product.
