Self-Representation

Whether you are being sued, or are the one suing someone else, one of the first questions that may come to mind is whether you need a lawyer. Usually the complexity of a civil case requires a lawyer's touch, but not always. In FindLaw's section on Self-Representation you can find helpful articles on when hiring a lawyer might be a good idea and in what circumstances representing yourself might be a viable choice. In this section, you can also find information on how the conduct of witnesses and parties to a lawsuit can affect the outcome of a case.
