Family support and the family helping a qualified attorney is great.
Family helping someone fight their own legal matter bad idea.
Same thing with a lot of Pro-Se filings and briefings. The person doing this work is not experniced in this area of law and a lot of times end up screwing their self by making simple mistakes, or by not raising the issue(s) at the first filing of the appeal.
The majority of Pro-se filers bring up issue that have been beaten to death in prior appeal by other parties. One that comes to mind right away is there
5th. amendment right.( loosing issue will not get past the clerk reading your filing) Then they try and bring up 4th amendment issues, further investigation most of the time reveals the pro-se appellant was on active probation or parole.( 4th. amendment, prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any search warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.)killed that issue real fast .Ok enough of my ramble time to step down off my soap box and STFU.
Be a friend to everyone,never know when you may need their help
