Yes, you can file a civil lawsuit without an attorney. However, if you bring your case on your own, you’re subject to the same standards as you would be if you had an attorney. You must follow the formalities for your case filing documents. The rules of discovery, admission of evidence, and civil procedure all apply to you. If you make a mistake, it may unravel your case even if you have a great case. While you can file a civil lawsuit without an attorney; usually, your best bet to recover the maximum amount possible is working with an experienced attorney.
While we certainly hope you consider taking advantage of a free consultation and working with one of our experienced attorneys at The Boerst Law Office, Inc., we strongly encourage you to retain an attorney to handle your legal claims, even if it is not one of our lawyers.
As the old adage says, “He who represents himself, has a fool for a client.”
