From commenter Iwonprose on Randall’s post “Does More Pro Se Litigants = Fewer Clients?”:
My experience with attorneys is that they don’t really care about you and only want paid. My opinion is they are overpaid and rarely ever do a good job. You know more about your case than they do. You are more interested in winning than they are. You only have one client to concentrate on, yourself. Why if you can read would you put your fate in the hands of a total stranger?
