This is a letter from me to Larry Drivon wherein I advise him that I will not sign a Substitution of Attorney converting me into an “in pro per” (acting as my own attorney).1 I advise him as to the reasons why, all of which boil down to the fact that I am not a lawyer, that he is, and he is a good one.
1 “One who acts as his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” This is an old proverb. Every lawyer is familiar with it. Drivon should have known better. I may have gone on to have a fool for a client, but my “foolishness” proved that a barrister can be proven a foolish fool as well, if he fools with the wrong formerly foolable “foolish” client turned in pro per.
