Written by a wig and gown litigator this is the how to avoid disaster in litigation. An insider's warts and all expose of the litigation junkie. Our hapless Cove is in litigation and won’t get out. Our jaundiced author will attempt to help the Cove before it’s too late: he’ll wriggle and squirm, switch me off, slam the book shut, ignore me and no doubt continue on his hapless way. Watch the fun as he destroys his life in the labyrinth of litigation. Unfortunately for the Cove and the many innocents who enter the legal system every year, it's all true.
This small work is a cautionary but hopefully helpful guide, written with a number of purposes in mind but its primary aim is to attempt to save the Hapless Cove from himself. I accept that is unlikely to happen, addiction being what it is, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. What is written here was forged in the fire of legal practice and a resulting sound, if jaundiced knowledge, of the Hapless Cove and the litigation process. This is otherwise known as the legal system or the administration of Justice. For the discussion of the administration of Justice as pure delusion please see my entry in the book at J.
