How NOT To Represent Yourself

Legal Representation MNWe all know that dealing with the court system can not only be stressful, but very expensive. In hopes of cutting costs, some individuals decide to represent themselves in court. Although this may sound like a smart idea at first, it can be very challenging because of the varying laws that may apply in your case. There are some people that are successful with representing themselves, however for the other majority, it is better to consult with a legal representative. If you live in Minnesota and are dealing with the court system, consider consulting the experienced and dedicated lawyers at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn, PLLC.

Don’t Follow Her Footsteps

Recently, there was a case in Georgia where a litigant decided to represent herself, and tell the judge how she really felt about the decision made on her $10 billion dollar lawsuit for what she thought was wrongful arrest of her husband. This claim was dismissed by the judge, which caused anger with this individual. Instead of handling this situation with respect and pursuing other legal options with the court, she decided to write a legal filing with the title “Notice to **** this court and everything it stands for.” Within this filing, she spoke directly to the 83 year old judge, stating “fortunately for us all, you are in old age and presumably nearing the inevitable death that awaits all old impotent geezers like yourself, with a one-way ticket to hell; which is good.” If we were to poll Americans today and ask them if they thought this style of representing themselves would be successful, the majority polled would say no.
