Got summons, get lawyer.

I am a big fan of several self help law websites here in Washington State, most notably www.washingtonlawhelp.org. But, outside of family law, simple estate and elder law problems, the probability of successful pro se litigation dramatically declines. In general, if you receive a summons and a complaint, you'll do better and SPEND LESS if you see an attorney right off the bat.
