Ask a Lawyer. Without Paying Legal Fees For The Entire Case.
Texas law allows a person to represent themselves in court, whether as the person suing or the person being sued. Small claims cases in Justice Court are the perfect place for a party to represent themselves because these courts were specifically set up to be the low-cost “People’s Court” without unnecessary formalities and rules of higher courts.
Whether it’s for a landlord/tenant dispute, wrongful eviction, property damage, breach of contract, debt collection, suit on debt, or an injury claim, you can file suit in small claims court in Texas.
Though having an attorney/lawyer is not required or necessary in small claims court, unique and special issues can come up that may require the knowledge and experience of a lawyer. Most lawyers charge hourly rates, $300.00-$600.00 per hour, and can easily spend 10-20 hours of their time representing you in your small claims case.
Do you want to pay $6,000.00-$12,000.00 in legal fees? No. Just pay a lawyer for the answers you need to continue representing yourself.
