Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. What information do you need? You have not asked a question yet.
You can respond in this thread. It is not necessary to open a new question thread to respond to me. I closed the other thread so you are not charged more than once for your question.
You asked if you need an attorney to go to court for the small claims appeal.
No, legally you do not need an attorney, though under CA law you may hire an attorney for the appeal if you want to. The reality is that as a rule, if you won the case in small claims court, you will probably win in the appeal too---whether you have an attorney or not. But if you would be more comfortable having an attorney, by all means you may use one if you want.
