Roger said about defending yourself in court: I know someone who did that. It was a total disaster, and I don't believe he can allege incompetent council if he's attorney pro se.

Like I said, if it's a simple case we don't need a lawyer to talk for us.
I went through 7 court appearances myself over a 9-month period on a vigilante rap in 2002 and mistakenly let my lawyer do all the talking, and I ended up getting 3 months in jail.
Looking back, I should have given him the boot early on and defended myself and
could have enjoyed strutting around the courtroom, I'd have made a great lawyer..
U can probably go back there
when thay r not using the courtroom, e.g. at lunchtime
or after court has adjourned for the day, before thay lock the door,
and u can still enjoy "strutting around the courtroom,"
lawyer talking, as u prefer.
If u like it enuf,
u can return ofen for more strutting,
when thay r not using that courtroom.
I advise against breaking in at night for strutting purposes,
unless that is in accordance with English law.
Let us know how it works out.
