This practical soft-cover book examines each phase of a civil action, meticulously analyzing applicable federal and New Jersey case law, and New Jersey statutes, court rules and code provisions. The chapters of the Handbook follow the progression of the civil action, from Parties and Pleadings, through Service of Process, Discovery, Trials and Appeals. Specialized actions such as Probate, Family Actions, Tax Court, and Workers' Compensation actions are also discussed in detail. Finally, the Handbook contains a full chapter of important general, appellate, and ADR forms.

The Handbook is designed to be concise and easy to use. Readers will be able to quickly reference the topics and authority at issue by using the book's extensive Tables of Rules, Statutes, Cases and Codes, as well as the 28-page Index.
