You have a court case, you need legal representation, but you either can’t afford one or do not want one because you are not sure if they will win your case. And that is how your search for other options landed you on court – you can represent yourself in a court case by becoming the attorney of record. And now you are wondering, can you do it? Yes, you can, you just need to possess the following three attributes.
To effectively represent yourself in your court case, you must take time to learn and understand the essentials of civil procedure. This knowledge should then be displayed in the sequence of your filings and in your ability to navigate the civil claims process without falling into the trap of an opposing lawyer.
As a Pro-Se litigant, you will soon realize that the paperwork in civil cases can be enormous and can easily get out of hand. And this is where meticulous organization skills come in. From your filings to relevant case law and evidence, you will be required to have them well arranged to allow ease of access when you need to deploy them.
Winning a court case requires a winning strategy. You must thoroughly study your case, identify and understand the specific elements of all the claims and defenses. And based on your understanding, you must develop a compelling strategy to result in a court ruling in your favor.
Having the above 3 attributes should give you confidence in winning your court case. But this is not all you need. You will also require proper guidance and teaching on all matters relating to your Pro-Se litigation, as well as a team invested in your success backing you up.
