Do I need a Lawyer?
This is a question that I am often asked by potential clients. Getting an attorney for a legal matter can be a lot like doing home improvement--some people can do the work themselves, other people need help because they don't know how or don't have the time to devote. Sure, you can pull your own teeth out, but it's probably best to go see the dentist, right?
I have encountered a great number of people who have tried representing themselves after doing "some research" on the internet. As is the case with most things on the internet, doing "some research" does not come with any kind of assurance or guarantee that what you looked up is either accurate or current law. The practice of law also involves a great deal of procedural knowledge that only comes with time and experience. While you may know everything about your case, an experienced attorney has seen hundreds of cases and can approach your case in a manner that you may not have thought was possible.
Do it Right the First Time!
Regrets: It is next to impossible to undo a plea bargain, settlement or divorce after the fact. Representing yourself carries with it the risk that you end up with a bad deal. Judges do not look favorably on individuals who try to back out of their agreements that were made in court. Judges certainly don't look favorably at people who come back to court and ask to take back their settlement or plea bargain because they didn't have an attorney. You only get one chance to do it right.
