Litigation is Not a DYI Project


It is alarming when non-lawyers try to play lawyer.  I see it fairly often and I never see it done with success.  I get it, lawyers are not trusted and are not perfect -- but those facts do not mean litigation can be done properly by a non-lawyer.


 Even small things like case scheduling vary from county to county.  In Chisago County, there is a centralized scheduling process.  In Hennepin County, more scheduling is done through the judge's clerks. Knowing how to even schedule a hearing is taken for granted, but this sort of unnecessary difficulty creates aggravation, anxiety, and detracts from focusing on the merits.


 Another case came down recently with a homeowner attempting to litigate against a roofer on a home in Anoka County.  The roofer brought a summary judgment motion.  The homeowners, representing themselves, attempted to submit papers for the hearing but did so incorrectly and late. The result:  Judgment for the roofer.


Do not make the mistake of litigating without a lawyer.  A good lawyer will cost money, but at least you have a better chance of minimizing your loss, potentially even winning, and for sure you will avoid losing due to a procedural error.
