Attorneys, Pro Se, and Sovereign Citizens Article

Sovereign Citizens do not believe in the legitimacy of the current government, and as such, believe they are only bound by common law.  However, even though they deny its legitimacy, they are adept at using the Court system to sue both the government and others.  I have had professional experience with this type of litigant, and their filings are generally voluminous, use obscure inaccurate quotes, and do not make legal sense.  I would think that most pro se litigants (people who choose to represent themselves and not obtain an attorney) feel the same frustration with the legal system, but for different reasons.  The Court system and litigation in general are confusing best, and anyone who is pro se is held to the same standard as an attorney.  Judges and opposing counsel are often frustrated with pro se litigants who are unable to accomplish seemingly simple tasks such as present their position, present relevant case law, and write court orders.  Although no one enjoys paying for attorneys, they are necessary in this legal world.  From defending a DUI to a divorce case, attorneys can make the process easier and can help you protect your legal rights.
