It's Gonna Be OK

The lady is officially freaking outHave you ever felt like the world was out to get you?  I mean, some days, it’s not worth even getting out of bed.  The other day I had a young lady come into the library who had just lost her job, her husband was threatening to leave, kids were sick, house payment due, in-laws on her back, credit shot all to heck and to top it off she finds she is getting sued for not paying on a credit card.  She was beyond the point of wanting to just scream at the top of her lungs

Good thing she was able to make it to the law library before she popped.  Quick as a wink, I guided her over to California Forms of Pleading and Practice (Lexis), showed her how to work the index (A-Z), and helped her find the chapter on  Contracts (specifically, how to respond to a complaint for breach of contract and common counts (because she was being sued for not paying on a credit card).  In no time at all, she was working her way to a more zen frame of mind and a resolution of at least one of her problems.

Maybe you have similar problems.  Maybe your neighbor’s dog tore your favorite pair of pants (while you were still wearing them).  Maybe your kid is being bullied at school or maybe your boss is just being a royal pain in the tuckus.  Whatever the reason(s), just know that the good folks at your local county law library are always there to help you solve (or resolve) your most pressing legal research problems.
