Everyday Law – Small Claims Do It Yourself

When people suffer an injustice, it is natural to think of hiring a lawyer to handle your case. However, if the damages in your case are under $10,000, it may be hard to find a willing lawyer to handle such a case. Even if a lawyer can be found, he or she might charge a minimum of $2,500 or $3,000 just to take the case. People can handle their own small claims (damages under $10,000) without hiring a lawyer in Small Claims Court if they do a little research.
