Great question. I will try to make the answer short. When I first joined Debtorboards I had Judgements and all kinds off stuff on my CR's.
It was overwhelming. I thought I would give it a try by myself. As it turned out It was to much for me to deal with. After speaking with a few Lawyers I found someone who I thought was honest, if you can believe there is such a thing as a honest lawyer,
After talking to him and listening how much he new about his field and who he new, which was more important then anything. He could get more done with one phone call then I could in six months.
He was straight with me from the beginning, which cases he thought wouldn't be a problem if he new the lawyers and how they operated from past dealings, he told me. If he didn't have a clue who was who, he told me.
I am still not done with everything with him. Now another Collection popped up so I'm trying to figure out if I can do it
alone. If it was the only thing going on in my life my chances would be good, it's not. I think it's great if someone could go
pro-se, I just haven't done it.
I guess if it was easy everyone would do it.
