Robinson v. Baggett, 2011 UT App. 250, 263 P.3d 411 (App. 2011)

While doing research for a client of mine, I stumbled upon this case. When deciding whether or not you want to represent yourself pro se, you must understand that... "the rules are the rules are the rules in a Court of Law." The rules will not change for you if you make a mistake as an unrepresented party. Only in rare circumstances will the higher Court use their equitable powers, such as what is found in U.R.C.P. Rule 60(b)(6). The case cited above contains one of those rare circumstances. 

While it may seem tempting to not hire an attorney, you could risk being stuck in a situation that you do not ultimately want to be in.
