Mick operates the Self Service Litigation Garage where he rolls up his sleeves to work with self-reps involved in civil and commercial litigation and trials across Ontario.  He is also the author of Mick’s Trial Manual, a practical online resource of trial information and trial precedents.

Mick’s approach to litigation and trials is to keep it simple.  Any case has 3 steps:

  1. Gathering information;
  2. Processing information; and
  3. Presenting information.

Mick breaks any case down into its 6 fundamental parts and guides self-reps on what to do with each part:

  1. Story (theory of the case)
  2. People (witnesses)
  3. Documents and Things (exhibits)
  4. Law of Evidence (what can and can’t be used)
  5. Procedure (how to get your day in Court and what happens at trial)
  6. Substantive Law (the legal test you must you meet)
