Described by many lawyers as the bible of New York practice, Siegel's Hornbook on New York Practice serves as the complete guide to civil practice in New York state courts, with a broad perspective in each subject. Used by students, lawyers, and judges alike and cited in thousands of New York cases, it discusses such topics as statutes of limitations, personal jurisdiction, appearance, venue, parties, papers, pleadings, motion practice, accelerated judgment, provisional remedies, disclosure, pretrial incidents, judgment, arbitration, and res judicata. The hornbook addresses pitfalls for practicing attorneys and judges. To eliminate the gap between what a student learns in law school and what a new lawyer actually needs to know in practice, the book starts from scratch on subjects, rather then assuming knowledge. This time-saving reference guide contains expert commentary; footnote citations to leading court decisions; and tables of cases, statutes and court rules.
