Why should I hire a lawyer to represent me?

It is important to get advice about your legal issue from a lawyer, whether you go to court or you use a different method for resolving your problem.

A lawyer can explain your legal rights and obligations (or what you have to do), and can discuss ways to resolve issues. A lawyer can also talk to you about services in your community that can help you.

You should consult a lawyer even if you decide to represent yourself in court. Duty counsel may also be able to assist you if you decide to self-represent.
