It happens to all of us - we find ourselves with a self-represented party on the other side of a case. Sometimes the person is cooperative, sometimes not. In any case, the challenges presented by a self-represented party can be frustrating at best, infuriating at worse. How do you approach a case with a self-represented party? Can you even get the case resolved? Is there anything you can do to ease the case along? Our experienced speakers will assist us with learning how to work with self-represented parties. Come learn the tricks of the trade from those "in the trenches." Our speakers are Shelly Matthys, Matthys Family Law, formerly Executive Director of St. Andrew Legal Clinic, and Judge Steve Todd, Multnomah County Judge pro tem.
