Hi...I’m a litigant in person and suing a company for breach of contract and deliberate misrepresentation.Both parties done their Direction questionnaires. I applied for Small Claims but the Defendant has pushed for Fast Track which has made things much harder for me as a litigant in person to understand and manage.Given where proceedings are now can you offer some books/websites that can help me understand the process further? Particularly with witness statements onwards.The .gov CPR (etc) sites offer very little information.I’m looking for info on how to draft a Fast Track case in the best way possible but also easy for me to understand.Mega thanks!

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

It sounds like you need some guidance in running a case in the county court.

There are some decent websites which provide guidance:

https://www.gabyhardwicke.co.uk/briefing-notes/guide-to-litigation-in-the-county-court/

As for witness statements, these are good:

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
