“Should I hire an
attorney?” is a question that
each one must answer for themselves.
To make a quality decision, consider
1. An attorney's first duty is to what or to whom? If We
consult the latest Corpus Juris
Secundum (C.J.S.) legal encyclopedia, volume 7,
section 4, We will find that an attorney's
first duty is to the courts
and the public; not the client:
2. What is the legal relationship between an attorney and the client?
2 in said Section 7, We find
that clients are “wards of the court:”
3. What is a ward of the court? According to a court case, “wards of
court” are infants
and persons of unsound mind:
Are you an infant or person of unsound mind? Wards
of a court need an attorney
to speak on their behalf.
4. Do you need to challenge jurisdiction? Better read the
particularly "...because if pleaded by an attorney....."
In My opinion, these are
the conclusions I would make:
1. When one hires an attorney, they become a ward of
the court and accept the venue
and jurisdiction of the court for the matter
2. One should not hire an attorney if one wants to
challenge venue and jurisdiction.
3. If one wants to challenge venue and jurisdiction,
one must do so as a "sui juris"
and or "in propria persona" and
without an attorney.
Therefore, should one hire an attorney?
In My opinion, ABSOLUTELY NOT!
