Do I need to have a lawyer?
No, a lawyer is not required, but you will be at a serious disadvantage if you do not know the law and how to present your case. If you are representing yourself and you are not a lawyer, you can place yourself at a serious disadvantage by not having the training and experience to know the law, how to present your case, and how to focus primarily on these tasks when you also might have very strong personal concerns about the case and other demands on your time which limit you from doing all that is required. The OEA cannot help you prepare your case. Be aware that the other parties may employ attorneys and an attorney will always represent IDEM.
