Tip: Templates can be helpful, as they can give you a sense of what a particular court filing should look like. But a word of caution: know what you are filing. Remember that even when you have access to a reliable template, you should make sure to individualize all court filings so that they fit your specific client’s case and needs, and to do your own research. The law changes frequently. Watch this video to learn more.
