Doesn't most judges look at those that represent themselves as having a fool for an attorney ? Then would not the attorney for the defendant see it as an opportunity to play legal games, file motions and stall any decision on the part of the judge ? And of course, there would be the paperwork to file the suit.....would it be difficult or could I use the services of a paralegal to assist ? I would be wiling to do all of this upon finding a replacement income. The "carrot" is only $250.00 a week for around $1,000 a month but sometimes it is not paid. I get a lot of "check is in the mail" stories and have many times received less.When I call the President of the company to say I have not received a check, his standard lie is that he told the book keeping department to send one out so he'll check on it. It has been a frustrating experience cause he'll just let it slide and never call back.
