Making The Decision To Represent Yourself
If you intend to file or defend yourself in a civil case without an attorney then you have made the decision to represent yourself. There is so much to know when representing one’s self in court. Pro Se Litigant is the term used for this type of litigation. One of the most daunting things when looking at legal paperwork is the amount of legal paperwork to be filed, along with a few other concerns.
- How many hours or days will it take to wade through all of this?
- What is important?
- Why is it important?
- How much would a lawyer cost?
- Who will help when there is no money for a lawyer?
That is where representing yourself comes into the picture. Doing the groundwork on your own. You can file Pro Se and yet there is that pesky paperwork. Someone with no legal background may not have a clear understanding of the law and get steamrolled by someone who does.
If you become a private member of ProAdvocate Group you can have the best of both worlds. As a member, you have a team to do a lot of the paperwork sorting for you. Also, they can challenge the claim’s validity, challenge the record of the judge in charge of your case, file motions for summary judgments and engage tools that an attorney who wants billable hours will not use. Your team will fill out the paperwork for you to sign and mail in. Bury the other party in a mountain of paperwork that will cost them a fortune to dig their way out of or get a summary judgment.
