Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Well no lawyers in justice court, but lawyer can file this is in a higher court and seek legal fees and costs if you want them to do so.You have to decide if the amount you are suing for is worth it to involve a lawyer.The most you can ask for in a small claims case is $3,500 (Small Claims Division); $10,000 (Justice Court).
