Judge Joseph Wapner Teams With Sharewell Group to Launch "The Secrets of Winning Small Claims Court"

New Book Is Definitive Small Claims Court Reference for Plaintiffs and Defendants Alike

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Judge Joseph Wapner, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge renowned for his 13-year role on "The People's Court" syndicated television show, and leading online marketing organization Sharewell, Inc. have teamed to launch "The Secrets of Winning Small Claims Court," the most definitive guide to winning small court cases written for both plaintiffs and defendants alike.

When people show up in a real court, they find it different from what they have seen on TV. Intimidated by the process and the speed at which the court hears cases, people make mistakes that can jeopardize their chances to win their cases. "The Secrets to Winning Small Claims Court" was written to help solve those problems, explaining -- in plain English -- the ways that Small Claims Courts operate and giving clear advice on how to most effectively present yourself and your case.

Available exclusively online (, the comprehensive book takes readers through the small claims court process through an easy to understand, step by step approach designed to present cases in a clear, concise manner. These lessons contained in the book can also help to keep you out of Small Claims Court in the future.

"If you find yourself in a dispute that you just can't settle, this guide will give you everything you need to know to best present your side of the story and evidence in Small Claims Court. I have presided over thousands of court cases, and over the years I have seen litigants make some colossal mistakes and major blunders. 'The Secrets of Winning Small Claims Court' will help you avoid these errors," said Judge Wapner.

"The Secrets of Winning Small Claims Court" is priced online at $9.99.

Although he is best known from presiding on the hit show "The People's Court," Judge Joseph Wapner's distinguished legal career spans more than half a century. A native of Los Angeles, California, studied law at USC and graduated with an LL.B in 1948. He entered private practice the next year and quickly established himself as a legal talent to watch. This led to his being named to the Los Angeles Municipal Court in 1961; two years later he was appointed to Los Angeles County Superior Court, where he served until his retirement eighteen years later. For many people, this outstanding career would have been enough, but Judge Wapner became the most famous Judge in America when he was named as the first presiding Judge of "The People's Court" in 1981. For the next dozen years (and 2,484 episodes) his combination of common sense and legal knowledge played a large part in making "The People's Court" the gold standard of courtroom TV. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed book "A View From the Bench."
