PRO SE ASSISTANCE
The cost of hiring a lawyer can seem prohibitive. Wading through the arcane world of legal forms can be intimidating. More than eighty percent of divorce cases are now filed without a lawyer's assistance, but the process can be unduly complicated if you don't understand the law, the courts, and the process.
In previous cases this method has saved clients thousands of dollars, made their lives simpler, and helped them achieve the result they wanted. This method is particularly helpful in cases involving custody or property issues, where the failure to get evidence into the court record can mean a pro se client loses a case that should have been won.
As an attorney with over thirty years of practice, I can help you make your way through this confusing process without the high cost of a full time lawyer. The services I provide include checking your forms to make sure they are completed right, or assisting you in completing them if you come across a stumbling block. I can help you prepare for hearing, make sure you prepare your evidence correctly, and teach you the process of getting evidence and witnesses' testimony into the court record.
Although I charge my normal hourly rate for this service, the hours required are substantially less. I can also quote you a flat fee, which would mean that you pay a certain amount no matter how many hours I put in.
If you have decided to represent yourself, make sure that the old saying that " a man who represents himself has a fool for client" doesn't prove true, by having an experienced lawyer on your side.
