A: Searching online for examples of summary judgment motions is more likely to be helpful than looking for templates or software. But that is no substitute for legal advice based on the facts of the case and knowledge of the law. Many attorneys in this area of the law would give a free consultation- and potentially represent you on a contingency fee basis.

A: The resources you are looking for will depend on what forum the summary judgment motion (or opposition) will be filed in. Are you in Federal Court? State Court? The EEOC (if a federal employee)? It would be worthwhile to consult an attorney to see if they might be wiling to take on the case. In most cases, your chances will improve significantly with a competent attorney preparing the brief on your behalf with your input. Best of luck!
