Newnan Lawyer ~ Advice Don’t Rep Yourself Unless …

Filed under: Representing Oneself — thebigpraetor @ 10:26 am

1. The practice of law requires at the very least the following:
a. Extensive training in the construction of paradigms and syllogisms
b. Extensive reading and understanding of old English Common Law and Georgia Common Law;
c. a working knowledge of the United States Constitution and the State Constitution
d. devotion to preparation, preparation, preparation of each issue in a case by the use of paradigms and syllogisms.
e. Devoted use of the Mathmatical formula: “Non Sunt Multiplicanda Entia Praeter Necessitatem ” [entities are not to be multiplied beyond necessity] popularly stated: “all things being equal, the simplest answer is always the correct answer”
f. Complete research of all the intertwined statutes and caselaw interpreting them for every issue in the case being handling at the moment.
g. Training and Experience and command of the use of visual aids in the presentation of multiple subjects.
h. Training in the art of cross-examination.
i. Training in negotiations and persuasions.
The Old English Judge has been quoted often: ” He/she who represents himself/herself has a fool for a client”. Should one perform their own surgery, dentistry, fly a plane without training, work on their car without training or a manual? Then, having read the foregoing, why on earth would one ever believe he or she could or even should practice law for oneself?
