Do I Really Need a Lawyer?

Judge Steve Halsey

Citizens appearing as parties in court without a lawyer frequently ask the presiding judge, “Do I really need a lawyer?” As the judge presiding over their case, it is unethical for me to give them legal advice, so it would be improper for me or any other judge to answer, “No, you really do not need a lawyer for this kind of proceeding”; or, “Yes, you must proceed with a lawyer.”

 While heading north for a  big fishing trip may be a Minnesota tradition, people living in the Twin Cities need not worry about missing out on quality angling if circumstances keep them at home.
