When my son was born he spent three days in the NICU.
Whenever I wanted to visit him I had to present my ID or I would not be allowed to see him.
Even then, I was not allowed to remove my son from his incubator without nurse supervision.
I was extremely annoyed and frustrated by the inconvenience, but in the end I respected that my son was being properly taken care of and watched over.
In New York, a business owner/manager cannot represent the business in Court. The business must be represented by an attorney.
In fact, a business owner can show up in Court and the business can still have a default judgment entered against it.
While, it may be frustrating for the business owner/manager, it is in the best interest of the business.
Remember: “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”
Who would you rather have guide you down a level 5 rapids, the trained guide or someone who has never ridden in a boat before?
The legal “rapids” are confusing and full of “hidden underwater boulders.”
A seemingly minor statement can change the whole course of a trial.
Or to put it in business terms, the cost of an attorney could seem miniscule to the cost of losing a trial because you represented the business yourself.
