It's always best to have a lawyer.

These websites will give you information about making your way through the court system, but it is important to remember that the information provided is basic, general information only and may not cover everything that is involved in your case. The information on this website is not legal advice, and does not take the place of talking to a lawyer.

The law and court proceedings are complicated, and lawyers have legal training. A lawyer can help you understand your rights and options and help get the best result possible in your case. If you go to court without a lawyer, there may be serious consequences and you may be hurt in ways you have not considered before.

If your case is a criminal case, it is especially important to have a lawyer to protect your rights. If you need help finding a lawyer and your case is a criminal case, information about lawyers for criminal cases is available under the Criminal Case topic. (TexasCourtHelp.org)

If you need help finding a lawyer for a civil case, information about lawyers is available under the How to Find a Lawyer topic on the civil case page, with links to different groups and services that can refer you to a lawyer. (TexasCourtHelp.org)
