What should I bring to a trial?
Bring all evidence and witnesses necessary to prove your case on the assigned court date, including such items as repair estimates (at least two), automobile titles or memo certificates, bills, receipts, letters, canceled checks, photographs, contracts, and any other papers having a bearing on the claim.

The people who should testify are those who actually participated in the events causing the dispute. Witnesses are essential to confirm your testimony or to relate relevant events that occurred when you were not present. If a witness will not appear voluntarily, you may subpoena him through the Clerk's Office. The cost and procedure will be explained to you by the deputy clerk.
