We're rolling in to 2023 with the energy of the new year and the excitement of the Tabono Law name change from Shon Cook Law is being received well. At the firm, the idea is growth and service working to assist their clients in more ways with the things that matter most. From litigation to mediation, if you are in need of the help of a talented and dedicated legal team who's commitment is second to none, you've found the right place. Combine that with Shon's willingness to reach right out and address the topics she does with us, just to show you how it works? It's a win for everyone.
This week, Shon is discussing self representation in a case. Specifically she speaks about divorce, but the idea is pretty applicable to any situation. Courts are busy, courts are overloaded. It might be a practical way to save a few bucks to try and represent yourself in defense of something minor, but if you're in a situation where there are major life decisions playing out, it's probably best to have someone working on your side who understands the stakes as well as the procedures. There are also an entire list of things that the "average person" might not even think of when it comes to stepping into an arena like a courtroom assuming that they can use their gift of glib and charm to work it's magic.
Shon really shares some insight and quite frankly, she shares some real life experience working with people who've tried to represent themselves and situations she's been in. Take a listen.
Let's break it down into the most basic of terms. Would you trust yourself to remove a bad appendix in someone if you were not a doctor? Would you try to replace the rear end gears in a Ferrari if you were not a highly skilled mechanic? Probably not. Thinking you're 10 feet tall and bulletproof or...that saving a buck is the best way to go is probably not applicable in the situation of a court case where lives will be impacted and financial decisions are being made.
