Scott Roloff explains the "ins and outs" of lawsuits and emphasizes the probability of encountering a lawsuit in one's life, whether summoned as a juror, giving a testimony, or as a plaintiff or defendant. He also delves into alternate solutions to a lawsuit, seeing as the best options are typically those that mitigate or eliminate costs and complexities.

For the circumstances where a lawsuit cannot be avoided, Scott provides a step-by-step breakdown of a lawsuit’s process, what to look for when selecting the best lawyer, different case classifications and the phases of a trial. He also defines the differences between attorney-client privilege and confidentiality obligation, as well as gives in-depth information about the process of jury summoning.
