You’d also have to hire someone in the field of expertise required. I can easily admit without any form of embarrassment that my fucking corporate secretary (this one’s a CPA whom I sometimes I use for other stuff as well) knows way more about corporate law than me in some areas which have to do with compliance and loopholes when it comes to regulations on things like taxation, financial reporting and hiring practices despite having studied some of these myself.
And I did ALL of this shit myself going through years of hell learning about corporate accounting and shit while working and how to apply this shit for years when I couldn’t afford the services of someone like her. Now I don’t even bother to even go through most of this stuff anymore because her expertise comes with over half a decade of exams while working in her field to qualify to be a CPA and a further half decade of practice.
But I’m not going to get her to represent me in a criminal case even if the law permitted it and she’s an avid fan and self-educated on the subject.
