Just because one may know every episode of Law & Order: SVU, or is a Dateline NBS aficionado, doesn't mean one should think they know anything about the law. And it certainly doesn't mean one should represent themselves in court.
Courtrooms are extremely serious environments where one of the fundamentals of our nation gets played out.

Things get crazy when a verdict is on the line, and you never know where a case can go.
