Default Two state courts have jurisdiction over the type and amount of issue

If two state courts (eg district and county) have jurisdiction over the type and dollar amount of issue involved, can I choose myself which one to file in or does the court system somehow do that?

It matters where you are because rules of court differ from state to state and court to court.

Generally, however, you should be able to file in either court. Make sure you check your local rules.

In such a situation you can choose the court to pursue the case. It is good to consult a lawyer before choosing the court as the procedures of two courts are different.

In any court other than small claims court, it is very hard to file and handle a suit by yourself without a lawyer.
Not impossible but not recommended IMO.
