Unfortunately, you will be at the attorney’s mercy, as you have limited experience with the rules of evidence and what can be objected to and what can not be objected to. Also, knowledge of the Georgia Civil Practice Act will be helpful. No matter how you look at your claim if you are in litigation or have either filed a hearing or a hearing has been filed against you, you likely need to seek out the help of an attorney.
If you have searched for counsel and can not find an attorney there are several attorneys who work with organizations to provide pro Bono help. Start with the county legal aid clinics.
It is never advisable to attempt to take on an attorney without a good working knowledge of the rules of evidence and the Civil practice act. Otherwise you will be subject to believe whatever the attorney tells you.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
