    "...in my case..." vs "...in my instance..."

    Which one is correct/proper?

    "... (as) in my case..."

    or,

    "... (as) in my instance ..."

    Please provide some examples on the usage.

    Thank you.

    The second expression is not used.

    Question Re: "...in my case..." vs "...in my instance..."

    But, philo2009, the first one seems 'a bit legal' when used in classroom situations. Don't you think so?
