Best Practices for Civil Litigation

Sonoma County Best Practices for Civil Litigation

The recommended Best Practices for Civil Litigation in Sonoma County (linked below), has been prepared by the Sonoma County Bar Association, Bench Bar section. Although some elements have been encouraged or reviewed by Sonoma County Civil Department Judges and the Court Operations Manager-Civil Division, the opinions expressed are those of the Bench Bar Section. We are living in a time of reduced Court funding and personnel, and an ever expanding need for Court services. Careful consideration of these offered Best Practices will allow our Courts and staff to do more with less, and we believe make your practice more effective, saving you and your clients time and money. Accordingly, this document is an effort to make more efficient use of Judicial Resources and Court staff time, and so that attorneys can assist with the orderly administration of justice.
