Our backs were against the wall. We had been pushed around by a commercial landlord. He managed to get us evicted from our space - so were about to lose everything. We filed a lawsuit, but just could not afford a lawyer/firm. We were about to give up, but I decided to give Ken a call. I am so glad I did.
Ken's model is a little different. He will not represent you, but he will give you the tools to pursue your own rights. I had seen his extremely helpful (and often inspirational) articles, and found that energy you feel from his posts to be real! I explained to Ken that our trial was coming up and that I could not afford a lawyer, and even i suddenly could, I would not be able to hire one in time. Ken, with all sincerity told me that I should go ahead and appear unrepresented, and on my own behalf. Ken assured me that he would give me all the materials I needed, and that he would roll up his sleeves with me to complete the needed trial forms (if you buy the trial prep package, you will get everything you need, and then some...). He actually worked with me almost a whole Sunday to make sure we would be ready for trial the next day (what other lawyers do you know who would do this?).
I decided to go ahead and proceed unrepresented against the landlord defendant. The courts are not your friends, and will not hesitate to knock you. However, because I had Ken's help I was able to complete and file all the forms needed (and there were a LOT). I would have never have been able to get it done. SO MANY forms and procedures. That is why you need Ken's help.
I am glad I took Ken's suggestion that we represent ourselves. We got a unanimous verdict from the jury and a substantial award.
Don't get me wrong - trials are really hard, so I am glad Ken has those trial prep packages. I despise unfairness, and I see landlords acting improperly all the time. Backing down is not fair on you, and only emboldens landlords. BUT, you can fight back against bad landlords, and you should, even if you don't have a lawyer!
Don't let landlords roll all over you. Ken will give you the tools and the tips to stand up against landlords. I really appreciate him, and I highly recommend him.
