It was the kind of pushback that is too good to miss.

I never said people could not represent themselves. It does take lots of hard work and preparation and a judge that allows you a voice. Being right doesn’t mean a judge will rule in your favour and all that work might be in vain.

As you concede, having a lawyer who knows court procedure is far better when you have something to lose, like your house.

Hsvkitty, note that representing yourself in court isn’t impossible, just requires a lot of homework and care to detail. (And yes, lawyers are definitely preferable.)
