Strategy for Tomorrow's Hearing

Ok, here's tomorrow's strategy.

1. Clear your mind from thinking that the judge is biased.
Talk as if the judge is fair until the hearing is over.
At the last mention, you were wrong to insist that the bank's last affidavit be rejected.
Because you thought that you were right and kept insisting, that could be why you thought the judge was biased.

2. When you meet the snake, smile and be friendly with him.  Don't mention about the Guerilla Letter unless he brings it up. Pretend the letter doesn't exist.
The letter letter's purpose to straighten up that law firm and also make him angry until he says the wrong things.
If he brings up about the letter, just say that you are still waiting for the reply.
The one that keeps his cool will win this debate.

3. Don't forget to ask for costs if you win and to fix the cost amount.
Print the cost Argument Sheet and bring along.

4. If the judge allows both parties to argue issue by issue and to interrupt, each other, then follow the argument practice which I have shown you.
If the judge does not allow interruption, then let the snake finish speaking before your turn.
When your turn to speak, you can read out the Skeleton Submission aloud if you find it difficult to speak impromptu.

5. At the end of arguments, ask the judge to "tolak" the application confidently to force her hand.

6. Don't worry, take it easy.  If you lose, we can still appeal to the High Court.
Even if we don't appeal, they can't do anything to you as the amount cannot make you bankrupt.

7. Don't forget to eat breakfast and tupperware some food and drinks.
If you are hungry, you might shake and shiver.

May the Force be with you.

Bert,

We all (most of us anyway) can't wait to hear all the juicy details on how you kicked the bank lawyer's butt tomorrow!

And when you're ready to work in Singapore, let me know, I'll tell you which industry has a severe shortage of workers, no experience, no special skills, no education... NO PROBLEM! Yes, they are desperate for workers! Even part-time workers are paid S$6.50 an hour + CPF + meals + uniforms + night transport home, well, not bad for someone who is broke. (Don't worry, no dealing with dead people or work under the hot sun, not cleaning toilet either. Work is NOT unpleasant. Sorry, I can only share this info with Bert for now.)

Hi 1818,

I noticed u have been one of the avid followers of my court case and has been giving some useful tips and moral support especially at the eve of my my court hearings. Thanks man! I really appreciate this.

Also thanks for introducing an opportunity to work in Singapore. I really like this idea but I doubt they will be interested to take someone over the hill like me. Currently as you may noticed from my nickname, I'm already 42 (born 1969). Although I may hv some academic qualification, I'm not so sure.

Anyway, let's think abt that later.

Wish me luck tomorrow k.

Hi Bert1969,

Looks like all basic strategy, advice & contigency are already given
by your good counsels here who are knowledgeable and experienced.

I have just the following to share with you:

(1) Best way to be in your top form (mentally & spiritually)
is to prepare everything by today. Sleep well. By tomorrow,
do not try to recall all the facts to the last minute when
your case is called. You may jammed up your mind in a real
situation. What I actually want to share thru my experience
is that, for example when a student has prepared well for
tomorrow exam, by tomorrow a student should be relaxed and
at most, a day before the exam, the student just goes thru
the important points. On the day of the exam, the student is
to feel relaxed & not trying to recall this & that right up to
the exam hall. Sometimes, out of panic - our brain can get
jammed up in a real situation! So practise the art of relaxing.
Furthermore, it would be good to visualise yourself in advance
as winning the case step by step with confidence.

(2) Of course you would understand it is better to ease yourself
in the restroom before you enter the courtroom. If drinking too much
water - would cause you to pay "water-bill" quite often in the restroom,
then you may need to adjust accordingly. Sometimes, due to rainy weather,
the courtroom can be extra cold, so bringing a coat or sweater does help
to you from shivering - just in case. Also, bringing some toilet paper
along in case the call of nature strikes (who knows) as I understand the
restrooms there may not provide any paper.

May the strength of God be with you. Invite God into your heart and ask Him
to speak through you in front of the judge. Believe me if David can beat Goliath,
the mighty legal angels of God can work through you.

It is not critical. Normally we pass just as the hearing starts.
This is the best tradition of the Bar.

Sometimes, some lawyers look very learned, scary & fearful to the defendants
who are just ordinary people representing themselves without a lawyer.

One way to overcome this, is to picture - let say "the lawyer in his underwear"
while he is speaking in the court. In this case, this visualization can somehow
make the learned lawyer looks small and hence psychologically tune you up better
to fight out in court step and step driven by only one mission to win.

The psychological tuned-up here is that how great a lawyer can be when you picture
him speaking in his underwear. I am not making fun of the legal profession but to
share with you this psychological weapon. Of course when we picture a person in
this way, do not be distracted but focus on what is going on in court. It is just
to give a person a psychological advantage from within.

You may be on your way to court and may not read this. However, our prayers are with
you while you are defending yourself in the court today (Aug 4, 2011).

My dear friend a notalawyer and all fellow forumers, sadly to inform that I have lost in my hearing this morning.

I had done my very best but in the end the lawyer and the bank win.

The court had decided to accept the application in favor of the plaintiff.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who have been very supportive towards my legal suitsince day one and words alone can't describe my gratitude and gratefulness.

Thanks a million to all of you.
