A person that represents him or herself in court has a fool for a client. When you are personally sued, you become emotionally attached to the case and it is difficult if not impossible to maintain an objective view of the situation. Therefore, it is harder to focus on the best defenses and potential solutions to the dispute.

If you are sued for a debt, your immediate thoughts may be "I do owe them money, but I cannot believe it is that much." An objective attorney will not immediately concede that you owe any amount. An attorney will ask questions.

The immediate questions will be:

- How old is the debt?

- How long has it been in default?

- Is the party suing the original owner of the debt?

- If not, how did they obtain the right to sue for the debt?

- Did the creditor violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?

- Is the debt calculated correctly?

- Does the Plaintiff conduct regular business in the State?

- Is the plaintiff registered with the Secretary of State for the state in which the suit is brought?

A suit for a debt can almost always be defended in whole or in part. The question is do you know how to defend the suit yourself, do you know what your defenses are, do you know what questions to ask, or should you hire an experienced competent attorney to assist you. When you find yourself facing the defense of a lawsuit, find an experienced passionate attorney to craft a valid and persuasive defense. In Georgia consider Attorney Kevin J.
