Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
It is always good to consult an attorney any time you are a party to a lawsuit. The attorney can advise you, and work on your behalf. If the Court finds that you are not part of the contract and therefore not a proper party for the lawsuit, the Plaintiff could end up having to pay your attorney's fees, and costs. This has to be properly plead, or presented before the Court. So if the money is the issue, you could be investing in an attorney up front only to have it save you lots of time, money and aggravation later on.
Of course you are not requird to have an attorney present and can represent yourself.
