The vast majority of legal issues faced by individuals today are not those that will turn into complex multi-party litigation.
In fact, the majority of claims are handled at the small claims court level.
However even when a person is preparing for a small claims court issue it can be beneficial to speak with an experienced attorney or to partner with this attorney for representation in the case.
One of the most critical questions here is whether or not you have a good case.
It helps to know that you can speak to an experienced lawyer in this situation and determine whether or not it is worth pursuing a small claims court issue.
In some situations, your initial conversation or consultation with the lawyer can help to illuminate some of the down sides of going to small claims court as well as what is expected of you if you do move forward with the small claims court.
When you are representing yourself in small claims court having the benefit of reaching out to someone to run your case by him or her and to get some insights about the preparation process can be invaluable.
