It can be extremely helpful to have someone in court with you who knows the facts of your case firsthand and can support your point of view. In many types of cases, such as car accidents or disputes over whether or not a tenant left an apartment clean, witnesses are particularly valuable. However, in other fact situations, witnesses aren't as necessary. For example, if a friend borrowed $500 and didn't pay it back, you don't need a witness to prove that your now ex-friend's signature on the promissory note is genuine, unless you expect the person to claim that it was forged.
