Robert Murdoch founded Be Your Own Lawyer in 2012 as a result of a failed retirement. After forty years as an attorney in both federal and state courts, sitting back and relaxing seemed like the way to go. But it was not to be. Seeing how many people were having to represent themselves for one reason or another, and seeing that there simply were no good resources for them, he decided to set up a one-stop website. Be Your Own Lawyer was born!
The intent is to provide a place where people representing themselves could get the help they needed, Be Your Own Lawyer publishes books and courses, and has provided one on one help for hundreds of pro se litigants in the years that it has been in existence.
