The St. Johns County courtrooms are getting updated—huge TV sets are being installed. With A/C, big TVs, and plenty of seating, the question is, which courtroom do you want for the Super Bowl?
Not every person’s experience in court is as grand as a Super Bowl party. While the courtrooms are physically comfortable, they can be an intimidating scene. There are some very serious people who look like they know what they are doing, and there is a guy with a gun.
You might not be up for this. While you have the right to represent yourself in court, you may want to seek competent legal counsel before going in front of that big screen TV and the Judge.
Attorneys remove the emotion so their clients can take the necessary steps to move through a legal problem. A lawyer can reframe the situation into business terms to help you look at the possible choices and consequences. Furthermore, the more you know about the legal process, the less stress you have about the unknown.
If you think you cannot afford an attorney in a civil case, contact your local Legal Aid office. Even if you do not qualify for Legal Aid, they have a lot of pamphlets you may find helpful. You can visit their office at 222 San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine, or call to make an appointment at (904) 827-9921. The Legal Aid website is http://www.jaxlegalaid.org/home.html.
