Legal Research and Resources

You are not required to have an attorney.  If you represent yourself, it is important that you prepare for the hearing. Review the decision made by the agency.  Review the law related to that decision.  Think about the information you want to tell the judge.

The resources below may be helpful when you are preparing for your hearing. (The resources below are intended to assist you in the hearing process and are not intended to provide legal advice.)
