Pro Se Legal Representation in the United States

1

Pro se legal representation comes from Latin pro se, meaning "for oneself" or "on behalf of themselves", which in modern law means to argue on one's own behalf in a legal proceeding as a defendant or plaintiff in civil cases or a defendant in criminal cases.

A defendant is a person or entity accused of a crime in criminal prosecution or a person or entity against whom some type of civil relief is being sought in a civil case.

A legal proceeding is an activity that seeks to invoke the power of a tribunal in order to enforce a law.

A plaintiff is the party who initiates a lawsuit before a court.
