I was sitting in court, waiting for my case to be called, when a judge decided to remind everyone why he thought it was important that they should not represent themselves in his court room.
He used to be a criminal defense attorney. He let it be known that he had tried many murders, successfully. He also noted that he was no expert in Driving While Suspended or Revoked cases, but he knew he would hedge his bets on beating a murder case any day over beating a misdemeanor driving while license is suspended/revoked.
So instead of polishing your legal skills with another episode of Judge Judy or Law and Order, why not heed the free advice from a judge?
