lawyer2By: Mike Brown

Eighty percent of the people in the United States cannot afford to hire an attorney.  In a court fight, 80% of the population would appear to be unarmed.  You don’t have to be one of them.

With very few exceptions, you can be your own lawyer in most legal situations.  This has been true in the federal courts since 1792.  See 28 U.S.C. § 1654, a federal law.  Many states allowed it even before then.

How do you become your own lawyer?  You read how-to books on the subject and learn how to do it.


Brown’s Lawsuit Cookbook:  How To Sue and Win $25.00

Filing a lawsuit or defending a lawsuit is easier than you think.  You simply have to know how to look up what the law is on a particular subject.  The law has an indexing system.  Chapter 4 in this book will teach you how to look up anything any lawyer can look up in about 90 minutes.

It’s easier than you think.  Title 28 U.S.C. § 1654, for example, simply refers to Title 28 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure) of the United States Code.  Section 1654 is merely the number of the statute, which reads:

§ 1654. Appearance personally or by counsel

In all courts of the United States the parties may plead and conduct their own cases personally or by counsel as, by the rules of such courts, respectively, are permitted to manage and conduct causes therein.


The Criminal Defendant’s Bible $50.00

If you have been indicted, you need this book.  Most people panic when they are charged with a criminal offense and, in that state of panic, blindly put their trust in the first lawyer they talk to.  You might want to learn what to expect in the court system first.

The first motion in this book—all you have to do is connect-the-dots for your case—is a Motion to Dismiss for Ineffective Assistance of Counsel.  Do you have a lazy, worthless, arrogant, incompetent public defender?  File this motion.  They won’t dismiss the charges but—in most cases—they will give you another public defender.  Quite often you will wind up with a public defender who will actually fight your case.  You may have to go through more than a couple of them.


The Drug Defendant’s Handbook $30.00

Don’t think you have a drug problem?  Guess again.  What are you going to do when a cop throws drugs into your car and then “finds” it?  This practice is so common that it is referred to as “farming” or “flaking” by the police themselves.

Are you actually guilty of smuggling or peddling drugs?  Not to worry, almost everyone makes the mistake of attempting to fight a case on the facts, which is a bad idea.  Most criminal cases are decided these days by Napoleon’s definition of history:  a set of lies agreed upon.  Prosecutors suborn perjury, bribe witnesses (his), intimidate witnesses (yours), the list is endless.

This book shows you how to fight a case on the law.  E.g., if a prosecutor charges you with felon-in-possession of a loaded gun clip (in the gun) in count two in federal court under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g), that’s illegal.  Make the court dismiss count two before you go to trial or negotiate a plea to count one in exchange for dismissing count two.


The Bill of Rights Handbook $5.00

The sequel to the Citizens Rule Book, which only addresses jury nullification, which is almost impossible in federal court these days.  This book describes what unelected judges have done to the Constitution, your rights, and what to do about it—an education on the Constitution that fits in a shirt pocket.


Why You Have No Civil Rights $5.00

How federal judges have destroyed your right to petition your government for the redress of grievances and how to overcome government blocking access to the grand jury.  Free on the Internet at:
