I had a Trumatic incident happened to my boyfriend at a small business where he was attacked by one of the employees I am trying to fill out a small claims packet do I list the business and they’re info? Or do I need to find out who the owner is an list his info as the defendant?
This sounds like you are practicing law without a license. Tell your boyfriend to go to the small claims court self help Center or do some research or see an attorney.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
You need to be very careful. Depending on the extent of what you are doing, it is possible that you could be charged with practicing law without a license. Your boyfriend is the one that needs to be doing this. Also, check with the c;erk's office as they may have a "self help" clerk.
Wishing you the best.

You do not. He may on his own behalf but even that would not be wise. Have a conversation with a local attorney to make sure this is done correctly or not at all.
