Alright, I got into with a friend of mine. She's says she can have ANYONE she chooses to represent her in a court of law, it doesn't have to be a lawyer. It was my understanding that only an attorney who has passed his bar exam who dispense legal advice and thus represent an indiviual. This conversation went on and on and it digressed into her saying she could have someone do surgery on her even though they weren't a doctor but I'm pretty sure thats againest the law as well. Only a licensed doctor could perform surgery. Can anyone shed some light on this and some proof would be awesome. I'd love to shut her up.
