    Thinking Of Being Your Own Lawyer?

    Well, people in the legal profesion will tell you

    "it can't be done" "the person who represents himself has a fool for a client"

    "penny wise pound foolish"

    and many other similar stern warnings.

    But there are many reasons people may want to represent themselves which the legal profession has scant comebacks to;

    #1 The cost.

    While many areas have lawyers that have very reasonable retainer/hourly fees this is not the norm in many cases and places.

    $100-200-300 an hour charges are common . Despite all the Lawyers ,they rarely compete on price like most buisinesses; they just decline the case; which results in the interest in the topic here; "why do people represent themselves ?"

    #2 Lack of interest by lawyers in your case.

    If you live long enough you will almost always run into this one. Many Lawyers Like to keep it simple; DUI ,Divorce, House Closings,traffic tickets. Cases like that. They don't feel comfortabe "getting into" things that aren't cut and dried and that they haven't done before.

    #3 Want to save money

    #4 Small Claims

    Many people's only contact with court is in small claims court. Either as a plantif or a defendant.

    Again, good luck getting a lawyer interested in a small claims case. I think the minute you say small claims court they hear "Small Pay Court" and lose interest.

    I did find a national company that has a program for this.

    I came across this company because I could not find a local lawyer interested in helping me se in small claims court against a company that I was certain would come in with a legal team to defend itself. I have not used them yet so I can't vouch for there service ;but it is the first such product I have seen and it minght be worth checking out.
