WHOM ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL?

Although the old adage “A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for his client” needs little explanation, it’s helpful to point out that the law allows an individual to represent him- or herself in most judicial proceedings. This is called acting “pro se” (Latin meaning “for oneself”). However, as much as many books and websites may seem to distill procedures revolving around wills, divorce, and other legal matters down to a simple, easy-to-follow formula, legal rules can be complex and arcane. All it takes is a single oversight or mistake by a person who is more interested in saving money than getting a desired legal outcome for an important legal matter to go wrong.

Providing t he best possible legal representation takes more than just a kind ear or an aggressive attitude. You want a lawyer who will both listen to your concerns and fight for you in court. For this or any other legal issue, please call our office to set up a free initial consultation. Together, we can go over the details of your injury and determine what your next steps should be.

HINT: In most civil cases, a lawyer will represent a plaintiff on a “contingent fee” basis, meaning the attorney agrees to get paid by taking a percentage of the award as a fee for services. If the client loses, the attorney receives nothing.
