High-conflict litigants can make you feel drained and exhausted and make your work life miserable.
High conflict people are attracted to court and may emotionally sway the court with false or misleading information about you. The way you write can make a big difference in your case. This course provides ten tips for writing documents so that decision-makers will get a focused understanding of the case. You will gain an understanding that judges have thousands of cases that are similar & have limited time and attention; they very quickly decide how minor or major your case is; and often have an unconscious bias that allegations of abuse are mostly true; or allegations of abuse are mostly false; or both parties are equal contributors to any problems.
