that's true. there is a lot you can do on your own, but a good, honest lawyer does offer:
a. experience dealing with insurance companies
b. knowledge of case law
c. professional relationships with judges
that being said, there are plenty of lousy lawyers and scammers out there too, and you might very well be better equipped dealing with it yourself.
