Grace Roessler presented an online seminar for MCLE, "Protocols for Dealing with Pro Se Litigants in the Probate & Family Court"


A litigator’s toolkit for successful case management and resolution with pro se litigants

The steep rise of pro se litigants, individuals who seek to represent themselves in court, forces lawyers to recalibrate their litigation approaches to account for the pro se litigant’s general unfamiliarity with court procedure, filings, discovery, and evidentiary rules. A good lawyer makes crucial changes to their strategy, including introductions, service, communications, presentation in court, and finalization of agreements.

Join our expert as we explore key differences between litigating against a represented party versus a pro se litigant, and adjustments the lawyer may need to make to ensure the case progresses smoothly and the client’s expectations are managed.
