The vast majority of people, the reason is really simple: They either couldn’t afford to hire someone at all, or they hired somebody and spent $10,000, $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 or sometimes $100,000 and they didn’t have any more and they were in debt for the money they were paying, so they became self-represented.”
