Well, I've got another...

I get one of these every few months and it's almost laughable (and sad).

It's the do-it-yourself failed eviction client and the subsequently delayed real estate sale. Why do people do this? Forcible Entry and Detainer (eviction) work is not all that straight-forward and I regularly see practicing attorneys screw these up. And further, Defendant's have a fair amount of leverage. Every so often I'll defend someone in an eviction matter and there are a lot of options to beat these cases or to at least delay an eviction for two to three months.

The current person we're dealing with cost himself a real estate sale. Who knows when the next buyer will come along. This isn't a high fee legal area, there are plenty of good lawyers (yours truly included) who do these at a pretty high volume and a flat fee deal.
