Calling Mr. Self-Rep! Calling Mr. Self-Rep!

Dear CyberSmokeBlog:

Sometimes, a person knows they need a lawyer but there's nothing they can do about it.

I agree with what you say but judges probably are obliged to explain that to people, just as they have to tell people their rights when they are arrested. It gives the illusion that justice will be done.

A lawyer provides credibility, if nothing else. I'm thinking here that a lawyer can accomplish a great deal just by representing someone, whether they understand the case well or not. But so does having family, or other interested persons help, as long as they have credibility. See my blog, Sue's Views on the News, for how this affects Human Rights cases too.

Dear Ms McPherson:

Thank you for contacting CyberSmokeBlog. Given some of the sloppy lawyering we've seen down at the Manitoba Law Courts, CSB can't help but wonder if at times you're better off to ignore a Judge's advice, take your chances and become a pro se (self-represented litigant).

To the readership. This is a very well researched and written blog you are encouraged to visit.

In the meantime, Mr. Self-Rep CyberSmokeBlog's Vancouver-based Chris Budgell resident expert on Administrative Law/Tribunals et al. and colossal pain in the ass to the legal establishment has been made aware of your site.
Mr. Self-Rep
Clare L. Pieuk
