According to comedienne, Tina Fey, “Nothing is scarier, by the way, than a bunch of adults being very quiet.”  That is a panel of justices for you, or a jury, or just a judge with a seething silence.  The courtroom tends to be a quiet place:  the serene halls of justice upheld by an armed guy who will shoot you if you get rowdy.

You can always represent yourself in court; however, there are many nuances and complexities of law, as well as updates which help keep our justice system an evolutionary part of American government.  These are good reasons to have good representation whether you enter a court of law as a plaintiff or a defendant.  An attorney can help guide you through the legal process, review the possible outcomes, and prepare your case for the best benefit to you.

Plus a panel of justices can be a tough audience to play to.
