Good morning,No, there's no legal requirement that you have an attorney represent you. An attorney is obviously going to be more familiar with the law and know which legal issues to raise, how to properly draft a complaint, etc., but if you wish to represent yourself, that is your right.Since you have been sued, you could answer the lawsuit, raise any affirmative defenses you may have, and file a counter-claim against him all under the one suit.
Was there anything I could clarify for you or additional information you needed?
If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to help further. Otherwise, please remember to leave a positive rating by clicking on the stars so I am credited for my time and assistance. This costs you nothing extra. Thank you!
