Customer Question

I would prefer Legalease to answer my question if possible.
I am self representing in a Supreme Court action and am about to conduct an examination for discovery. Can I have someone with me to take notes or is it normal for the opposing lawyer to object to this?
Thank you.

You can ask for an assistant to take notes.

The assistant will not be able to contribute anything but can take notes.

The lawyer should not object because lawyers always bring assistants with them and you are self-representing.
