What is Pro Se Law?

Representing yourself in any type of legal matter without the benefit of legal counsel is referred to as acting “Pro Se”.

Pro Se (pronounced ‘pro say’) literally means “on one’s own behalf” — you choose to act on your own without hiring an attorney.

Legal self representation applies to more than just court proceedings; actions like creating a Last Will and Testament, filing a Deed, handling your own Divorce or filing for Bankruptcy all fall under the pro se category, provided you complete the legal forms and file the paperwork without the advice or representation of a lawyer.
