This booklet was created because four million people every year are filing legal cases in court themselves because they cannot afford an attorney. In the United States we have the greatest legal system and attorneys in the world but if you cannot afford to take part in our legal system, many of us are left out.
Our courts have done their best to assist the self-represented but unfortunately it is just not enough to handle the huge demand.
I have been a paralegal for over 30 years and met many wonderful people over my career. To see the pain and fear in people’s eyes talking about the legal system I love, and not being affordable to them. I wanted to help in some way. One morning I woke up thinking, what if there were legal booklets for people that could not afford an attorney that was easy to read, understandable and affordable, could that make a difference?
In talking with family and friends about my idea we became partners in working on a solution to this problem. We contacted an excellent Law firm and told them about our idea. They came on board.
