It is advised that you speak with an attorney for counsel and/or representation if you are involved in a legal proceeding, if you think you have a claim against another person or that another person might have a claim against you. An attorney can outline your rights and obligations, counsel you on the likely results of your case in light of the evidence, try to negotiate a settlement of your case without a trial, file legal paperwork on your behalf, and act as your representative at any hearings.
If you decide not to hire an attorney or are unable to do so, you often have the right to represent yourself. This is known as acting "pro se." You will be subject to the same norms of procedure and proof if you represent yourself in court. Legal norms, which can be found in statutes, court decisions, and regulations among other sources, can be complicated and there is no one single source of them. This makes it challenging to speak for yourself.
Many people find lawyers based on personal recommendations from family or friends. Other attorneys in the area are often happy to recommend an attorney who may be able to assist you with your legal problem. There are also many online resources that can help you find a lawyer in your area.
