Represent Yourself in Court
Work Shop Description:
Certain cases are cost prohibitive for an attorney's involvement. There are certain cases that
attorneys may not want. Maybe you simply do not have the money to finance a litigation.

Expected Learning Outcomes:

Last, the minefield of appellate issues will be mapped out so that appellate rights are not lost due
to oversight. We will also discuss when it is imperative to obtain a lawyer and in those situations,
how to defray those costs.

job before completion), and cases not involving juries.
