Can I Afford a Lawyer?

Does anyone remember the H&R Block commercial where the husband claims to be a "tax master"? If you do, you'll also remember the H&R Block spokesman destroying the husband's laptop with a katana before informing the husband that the husband is, in fact, "not a tax master." That's very much the feeling of many lawyers when they see a person represent themselves (or what we call "pro se," which is shorthand latin for "on one's own behalf"). The husband was noticeably distraught at the destruction of his laptop. But, the point of that commercial and one that applies here is that as a pro se litigant your chances of making a mistake harmful to your case increase dramatically. Unfortunately, the look on the husband's face after the destruction of his laptop may be but a fraction of the agony felt by those without a lawyer. In certain types of cases, that agony can go on for a very, very long time.
