Self-Representation is your right
The Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees all defendants in U.S. courts the right to competent counsel. Whether its confidence in oneself or inability to pay thousands of dollars in retainer fees for lawyers, many Americans choose to represent themselves in court proceedings. The United States Supreme Court ruled in Faretta v. California, 422 U.S. 806 (1975), that this right even extends to criminal proceedings. Most small claims courts disallow lawyers altogether, leaving inexperienced plaintiffs no other choice but to represent themselves.
A large majority of lawsuits and other civil litigation end without anyone ever stepping foot in court, in front of a judge. The key to self-representation is knowing all the rules and procedures to properly advance your case through the system and towards the goal. Content Coup Legal Services gives you personal, one-on-one access to a legal writer and paralegal with real-world experience, who help you prepare for your case*. We listen to all the details of your case, request all necessary documents, draft your complaints, motions, demand letters, etc.; and write out step-by-step instructions in plain English so you have a functional knowledge of the court system. We can help with small claims, federal/state civil rights cases, wrongful termination, divorce, eviction, criminal appeals, habeas corpus, and more.
Lawyers charge five-figures in many cases just to take your case on before knowing any details. Content Coup prepares you to represent yourself at a fraction of the cost. Contact us today with the details of your legal matter.
